Toronto, ON, Canada
Mark has twenty odd years experience defining and executing brand expression.
He has written retail flyers. Commercials for Prime Ministers. Tray liners and TV campaigns for McDonald’s. His award-winning Foster’s Beer posters were pulled because one word offended one person. His Infiniti campaign won awards because of its two-word headline. He dropped a bowling ball on Richard Simmons’ head for a Simmons Mattresses commercial. He is a voice director and composer, having developed commercial soundtracks and branding mnemonics for UPS, RBC, CIBC, Kia, the Royal Canadian Mint, Budweiser and others. He scored a bad Canadian TV series and a pretty good Canadian movie. He brings this experience to his role at Interbrand, crafting brand stories, creating names, and developing voice and messaging guides for a range of clients from various sectors. He loves talking about Verbal Identity - particularly in Canada, where it’s not well understood or utilized. And, Mark named a toilet paper.
