A Radical Concept: "Results-Oriented Creative"
George Brianka is a freelance Creative Director who most recently worked for PR giant Burson-Marsteller, and as part of Burson-Marsteller's creative team, helped create and write award-winning NYC Dept. Of Transportation’s Vision Zero campaign in TV, out-of-home, social media, NY Nets public Address, and NY Mets Sponsorship videos. Resulting in the lowest fatality and accident numbers in over 100 years, including a 32% decline in pedestrian fatalities.
George has a knack for making big things happen. While at the helm of the 2-person creative dept of a small DRTV agency, double-armed with Art Direction, AND Copywriting skills, George helped take that small boutique creative shop and turn it into an Inc500 Agency, making close to a billion dollars for his clients. Prior to that, he’s worked at such creative hot shops such as Oglivy & Mather, Messner, Vetere, Berger, McNamee Schmetterer/Euro RSCG and Follis Advertising, as well as FCB Draft Healthcare.
George is also founder of Cool Creative LLC. As Creative Director, George created the award winning iPhone app, "iPee Address", which is the leader in its category. It has consistently stayed in the Top 100 Paid Apps in the Apple iTunes Store in the Travel Category and was entered in the 2013 Cannes International Advertising Festival, as well as been featuring on 1010 WINS Radio for App of The Week.
George also wrote, directed, and shot a horror short film that is part of the feature film, "Devil's Five.", winning Best Horror Film in the 2018 Hell’s Kitchen Film Festival.
In his spare time (lol) he also came up with the brilliant, fun, and highly successful Shopify website; "Pet Vignettes" which allows people to upload and receive portraits of their pets on an artist-grade canvas in Renaissance outfits.
George’s radically creative style has got him mentioned in periodicals ranging from Adweek, to the New York Post Page Six editorial column. He was also awarded praise from Tipper Gore for his pubic service work for the National Mental Health Awareness Campaign. He was a judge at the 2000/2001 New York Festivals International Advertising Awards for Print Advertising and the International Television & Cinema Advertising Competition, and has won several awards, including Gold at CAMA, and several Tellys.
