Ryan Martindale

CD/Writer, Salt Lake City, UT


I’m a writer & CD who despite the rumors, doesn’t believe advertising’s dead. For a decade I did tours at big agencies around the country like GSD&M, Leo Burnett and Publicis before amassing enough courage and irrational optimism to open up my own shop. I was Co-founder/Executive Creative Director at Super Top Secret for six years and led the charge in building a roster of national and international business from scratch, growing STS from four people to 50+. Over my career I’ve been fortunate to work with truly talented people and build brands I love like BMW, Oakley, Ubisoft, Google, Uber, Sonos, Starbucks, Heineken, Rossignol, Southwest Airlines, GMC, Skullcandy, Petzl, Tillamook, Peligroso Tequila, and University of Oregon. These days I'm a hired creative gun going wherever the best work takes me. When I’m not on the road living the freelance vida loca, I’m spending every free second with my rad wife and kids.
