2015 ADDY Creative Director of the Year
Ian Barry, Cramer-Krasselt
Ian started his advertising career at the age of 8 when he sent an ad concept to Pepsi-Cola. His idea was politely rejected, but the Marketing Manager sent him a pen and pencil set along with a note stating that “Someday a creative boy like you will be in the advertising business.”
That prophecy came true, as Ian worked at agencies in Atlanta, New York, Denver, and Richmond before coming here to C-K Phoenix in 2000.
Along the way, he has worked on campaigns for Burger King, Peter Piper Pizza, RCA, UPS, Dial, Compaq, Stanley Tools, Florida Citrus, Labatt’s, Aetna, Molson, University of Phoenix, Wolfgang Puck, Blue Man Group, Toyota, Crystal Springs, Culligan, COX Communications, RA Sushi, Monterey Convention and Visitors Bureau, Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, Horseshoe Gaming, Zicam and MGM Grand Las Vegas.
He has been lucky enough to win both national and international awards at C-K and prior agencies, including a One Show Gold Pencil, a Gold Obie, and Communication Arts and Effies.
Ian is married and a dedicated father to his teenage daughter, Anna.
