For more than 18 years Canadian born Steve John has created and written authentic stories which have turned into award winning work for Wal-Mart, John Deere, The Climate Corporation, Norwegian Cruise Lines (NCL), 12 Foot Beard Whiskey, AT&T and others. A graduate of the Creative Circus ad school in Atlanta, Steve started as a copywriter working on Hershey’s and since then has worked on everything from Fortune 500 companies to start-ups.
As a Creative Director, Steve has proven experience developing a diverse creative culture which empowers and motivates teams while striving to build strong and lasting client relationships. Steve seeks to create a culture that encourages creatives to ask the all-important question of “why” while not being afraid to fail in search of the answer. Steve also created, produced and hosted the 12 Foot Beardcast, a podcast that was tied to the spirits brand he created, “12 Foot Beard Whiskey”. This podcast ran for 12 episodes and highlighted guests of integrity and character from all walks of life — he even hosted a live episode at the Monocle Bar in Saint Louis.
When Steve isn’t at the office he’s working feverishly as the owner, writer and artist on his own publishing company: Ichabod Oldbuck Press.
