As a cartooning student at New York’s School of Visual Arts during the birth of the graphic novel, Stewart developed an appreciation for how a modicum of words and pictures could strategically combine to create maximum impact. As a copywriter for the last two decades, that foundation has informed Stewart’s approach to storytelling in both the world of brand advertising and the more tactile, experiential and evolving landscape of digital marketing.
Since joining Atmosphere in 2007, Stewart has led the creative work across the agency’s accounts, with highlights that include launching the global cheer engine for Visa's 2012 Olympic sponsorship, helping Emirates Airline prove we're all even more amazing together with the Harmony music experience and working with Citi to transform the customer experience through its expanding footprint of digitally-powered Flagship Branches.
While helping to guide the SAP, AT&T Wireless and American Express OPEN accounts at Ogilvy New York, Stewart was a regular contributor to Amex’s renowned Official Card campaign and revisited his cartooning roots as part of the team on the seminal Adventures of Seinfeld & Superman campaign. As an ACD at DDB New York, Stewart helped advance the fortunes of Amtrak, Michelin, Bentley Motors and the island of Bermuda. During stints at Pedone & Partners, Lord Einstein O’Neill and Cronin & Company, Stewart honed his branding skills on Leica Camera, NBC-TV, Subway and Poland Spring.
Over the years, Stewart’s work has been recognized by the Cannes festival, the Andy Awards, the One Show, the Clios, the Addy Awards, D&AD, the Art Directors Club and, most recently, the Webby Awards, OMMA Awards and Web Marketing Association. When he’s not working, Stewart can most likely be found combing through graphic novels with his wife and three sons in Livingston, NJ.
