Under his leadership, that Weiden+Kennedy place finally seems to be turning things around in the right direction.
Digital Planning Assistant, MediaCom
Has never eaten at Guy Fieri’s Time Square restaurant. Even ironically.
Strategy Director, DDB Chicago
It’ll be awkward if he ever works at Leo Burnett now that he outranks Leo Burnett himself. They’d probably just have to change their name to Matt Mullen.
Executive Creative Director, Goodby Silverstein & Partners
Shakespeare isn’t even 500 and he didn’t make the list. This guy is such a good writer, he did.
Executive Creative Director, INNOCEAN
There is no way anybody is still reading this list. Sorry, Ed. You deserve better.
Creative Director, 72andSunny
Nobody ever names their pets “Jason.” And that’s a damn shame, just imagine how great a poodle named Jason would be. Almost as great as this Jason.
Creative Director/Simpsons Character, The Richards Group
“Impossible” isn’t in this guy’s vocabulary but most other words are.
Chief Creative Officer, David & Goliath
He kept his jacket on in this photo because he never wants to get comfortable. That’s what makes him so great.
BRIAN FARKAS & TYLYNNE MCCAULEY
One of the rare creative teams who don’t refer to themselves first and foremost, as storytellers.”

An immortal in the industry, so there’s a chance he could actually lived to 500.
Chief Creative Officer, The Martin Agency
Has blazed a trail for other people in the industry with two first names.
Creative Strategist, Code and Theory
Officially now more famous than Ray Romano and the pizza industry’s “Famous Ray” combined.
VP/Executive Creative Director, Peter Mayor
He’s won many awards and was the Senior Advertising Advisor at Creative Circus. We’ve been to the circus because once in middle school somebody called us “dumbo” because of our large ears and it really stayed with us.
Advertising Guy, Cornett
We still couldn’t figure out more about Whit other than he’s an advertising guy. Even after months of painstaking research.
Associate Account Director, 180LA
She put the “Power” in Powerpoint.
Art Director, Wong Duty
He never does anything wong, but we’re far too mature to comment on his duty.
Wikipedia describes him as “fiercely religious and humorless.” That’s a little harsh if you ask us.
Producer, Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness
Why’s there a Bastille day, but not a Basile day? Well, maybe this list will change that.
Account Executive, Pitch
Great at her job and also she’s got “Christ” in her name. That guy almost made the list too, but was disqualified because of the age thing.
ANN CHRISTINE DIAZ
Editor, Creativity Online
A great writer who posts the occasional TBT, but it’s never from 500 years ago.
Creative Director, Private Technology Company
His brilliant thinking and sandal clad jump shots have earned him the nicknames "The Flip Flop Floater,” “The Sandal Assassin,” and for some reason we have yet to figure out, “The Human Tea Kettle.”
Chief Strategy Officer, Droga5
Perhaps the best advertising arm-cross we’ve seen yet.
Senior Designer, Preston Kelly
He’s got a new site coming soon, and when that does happen, chances are he’ll be moved up to at least #61.
