Junior Art Director, The Agency
It’s unclear whether or not he’s sponsored by Quiksilver, but if he is – their investment seems to be paying off.
Associate Creative Director, Pereira & O’Dell
An incredibly hard worker who spends countless hours at work, but unlike many people on this list, still finds time to shave.
SVP/Director of Creative Talent, McCann Worldgroup
Mars was the Roman god of war. Sallie is an American goddess of an industry that regularly uses the term “war rooms.”
Integrated Junior Art Director, Saatchi & Saatchi
Even though there’s an "i” in integrated, she’s a team player.
We’re a big fan of his background – both where he’s worked at previously and that yellow silhouette. It’s a nice touch.
Senior Strategic Planner, McCann
This guy’s got a bright future, so long as the pending lawsuits are lifted.
Art Director, Havas Worldwide
He probably doesn’t want this getting out there, but he’s Banksy.
Social Marketing, Havas Worldwide
Her thoughts on social marketing are almost as refreshing as her iced tea.
Chief Creative Officer, AMV BBDO
CCO AMV BBDO. That’s a lot of letters.
Designer, DDB Chicago
Either someone said something funny as this photo was taken, or she was thinking about an episode of The King of Queens she’d just watched.
Creative, Camp + King
Great head of hair. Wonder what kind of conditioner he uses. If you’re reading this Erik, please let us know.
Chief Executive Officer, TBWA\Chiat\Day New York
Always waits for others to get their food before he starts eating his. Even when they insist he, “should really just go ahead, they don’t mind.”
Co-Founder/Design Director, 72andSunny
He found a whole company, and I have yet to even find myself.
Art Director, Ogilvy & Mather
To become as good at photoshop as she is, it would take some people 500 years or more. Not her though.
Since her last name is Darling, her parents missed an opportunity by not naming her “A Real.” It would’ve been unique, but more importantly, accurate.
Chief Creative Officer, 180LA
This guy is relentless and always gets exactly what he wants, unlike us since you can see we had to settle for a different domain name since 500under500.com was already taken.
Copywriter, David & Goliath
She’s great, we just hope she’s pointing at something cool and not picking someone’s nose.
Art Director, Kirshenbaum Bond Senecal + Partners
Nigel has strong hands, the kind you’d want your father to have.
Creative Director, RPA
A talented creative who has an Ello invite, if anybody wants one.
Chief Creative Officer, Publicis New York
He’s British so when he says 500, it sounds different.
Editor, Cutting Room Films
He has a beard a lot of people touch without asking and he rarely complains about it.
The only thing he maintains more than his beard is his drive to consistently create exceptional work.
Like a lot of people in the industry, has more than one tattoo.
Chief Marketing Officer, Publicis Worldwide
She’s done a ton already, so just imagine everything she’ll have accomplished by the year 2497.
Account Director, Guerilla Suit
We’re impressed whenever a guerrilla is able to learn sign language, so if a guerrilla were be able to put on his own suit – we’d be blown away.
