co-executive creative director
Jay Giesen is co-executive creative director of Brunner in Pittsburgh. His 21 years of creative experience are as diverse as his love for sports and the outdoors—from hunting deer to dunking a B-ball. His ideas and leadership have helped to successfully market brands ranging from AAA to Zippo, and his work has been honored with Addys, Clios, Kellys and Obies, and by Archive, Communication Arts, the New York Art Directors Club and The One Show, among others. Giesen loves to cook and views the cheeseburger as the ultimate culinary challenge and, at six foot seven, he is always chosen first in pick-up basketball games.
