LOUISVILLE, KY. – July 19, 2011 – LEAP made a recent addition to its Creative Department in the Cincinnati office.

Nathan Dye and Alexander Lockwood joined LEAP, bringing a combined 15 years of experience in the advertising field.

“Both Alex and Nate had exactly what we were looking for in who we wanted to bring on board. They are both creative and extremely talented people who have an integrated approach to their work,” said Alan Gilleo, chief creative + experience officer at LEAP.

Nathan Dye, senior writer, has a Bachelor of Arts in integrated strategic communications from the University of Kentucky. He has 10 years of experience in advertising. Before joining LEAP, Dye was a freelance writer. He is also a member of the Cincinnati AdClub. He has won several local Addy awards, a regional Addy award, and his work was highlighted in Print Magazine.

Alexander Lockwood, senior designer, has an Associate’s Degree from the School of Advertising Art in Kettering, Ohio. In the five years Lockwood has been in the advertising field, he has received the Columbus Society of Communicating Arts Creative Best Winner Award, and the Greater Dayton Advertising Association Addy Award. Lockwood is an advisory board member for the commercial art class at the Miami Valley Career Technology Center.

“When we decided to implement a creative team in our Cincinnati office, it was because we wanted a dedicated team to serve our Cincinnati-area clients. Alex and Nate have done a great job at working with our Cincinnati clients, while also working seamlessly with our Louisville Creative team,” said Gilleo.

Our award-winning Creative team at LEAP drives the vision and passion for campaigns, creating the big idea concepts, which are then incorporated throughout the marketing plans.

LEAP has a creative team in Louisville, as well as a creative team in Cincinnati to provide face-to-face access to clients in that city. The majority of the projects the Creative team works on are interactive marketing pieces including websites, digital display and social media. However, the amount of traditional projects has grown in the last year.
