“I’m not sure why media and creative ideas ever broke up, but I’m working hard to get them back together. ”
Amber joined Arnold in May 2010, and works with Arnold’s creative, strategy and account teams, as well as external partner agencies, to bring medium and message together in creative and innovative ways.
Prior to Arnold, Amber worked at Naked Communications, leading integrated communication strategies for brands like Citibank, NBC, Johnson & Johnson, Kraft, and Google, and went on to drive agency innovation as Director of Digital Strategy – with a pitstop at McGarryBowen in between, leading strategy on the Verizon Droid launch. She gained in-the-trenches experience in the digital space at Deep Focus, leading strategy for the likes of HBO, Miramax, Nike and Dewar's Scotch. She also learned way too much about spot colors and press proofs while working in the studio at DDB Los Angeles – oddly, knowledge that seems to come in handy more often than you’d think.
Amber has a masters degree in Integrated Marketing Communications from Emerson College, and has served on the jury for the Content and Contact and Integrated categories at the Clio Awards. She enjoys interior design, comic books, fan culture and technology, and has been in a waterski pyramid. For real. Second tier.
