Hart Rusen’s Portfolio Spans Multiple Categories With Two Decades of Experience Creating Business-Building and Award-Winning Creative Work


Seven years after opening our doors as the modern agency for modern brands, we’re doubling down on our creative commitment, bringing Hart Rusen on board as our new Chief Creative Officer. Additionally, we’re also building a brand new in-house content production studio to focus on making and serving brands with a new form of creativity. 

A 20+ year industry vet, Rusen has created Cannes Lion-winning and Super Bowl-scoring work for mega-brands like Doritos and Cheetos, respectively, at Goodby Silverstein & Partners, Publicis, and Mekanism.

As we lean into our creative passion and serving clients with increasing levels of creative excellence, we have redefined our go-to-market strategy, articulating a new manifesto inspired by our belief that modern brands need to do more with less. And that requires smart, mighty, fast ideas, made collaboratively and collectively. 

Enter Hart Rusen.

Hart has worked as a team leader and writer at ad agencies, design firms and in-house marketing groups of all shapes and sizes for more than 20 years. Highlights include his leading creative efforts at Mekanism to unite Alaska Airlines and Virgin America. As Group Creative Director at Publicis, he helped the T-Mobile brand flourish after a failed acquisition by AT&T. At Goodby, he resurrected the Cheetos mascot, Chester Cheetah, tapping into his alter ego and landing him on the Super Bowl. His work on Doritos’ “Hotel 626” resulted in numerous Cannes Lions, One Show, and D&AD honors. Hyundai, HP, Budweiser, REI, Nike, and many more have also benefited from Hart’s sharp and strategic creative skills. Check out his portfolio at
