    Hello, my name is Andrew Rose, and here’s my elevator speech: I’m a journeyman graphic designer with creative director credentials.

    I’ve burnished my design and creative leadership skills working in advertising agencies, led a corporate advertising/marketing department, and for the better part of 20 years provided contract creative services to an impressively diverse client list — some of the largest companies in the world and undoubtedly some of the smallest. I work solo, on-site and off on just about any sized marketing communications project. And I have the resources, if scope dictates, to convene a right-sized work group to tackle just about any project.

    What can I do for you?

    Bremer Bank

    Bremer Bank is an upper Midwest bank that has, for better or worse, become known as a bank that caters mainly to business clientele. Crucial savings deposits, especially existing customer’s Individual Retirement Account savings, had slowed to a trickle. The bank found that their ‘Old School’, advertising and marketing were not generating the interest and results they were hoping to achieve.

    I was engaged to help create a series of IRA-specific direct mail pieces targeting specific populations of savers, and non-savers. Concepts presented to the bank included the examples shown here, a little edgy and irreverent with a straight payoff.
