Hi, I'm Garret Dafferner and I've spent the last 10 years working in advertising doing everything from web design and digital activations, to logos and branding, winning contests, launching Super Bowl commercials and cross-platform campaigns with talking squirrels.
When not advertising I've acquired two patents, started two companies, had two major art installations in the Flatiron building, multiple solo shows of my sculptures, wrote/created a cartoon series… and so much more!
I love all things creative because I think every challenge in life is really just a creative question, therefor everything can be solved with creativity. So while I'm an ad man by trade, it's simply the creative process that gets my goat.
