As our client roster continues to expand, so does our creative team. Two new senior level additions bring over 25 years of industry experience to Schifino Lee, along with vital digital skills and some international flair.
Howard Beauchamp, Senior Art Director
The agency’s first British art director, Howard Beauchamp, has a resume packed with over 15 years of award-winning work for some of the world’s most iconic brands, including Mercedes-Benz, Volvo, Panasonic, Labatt Breweries, Roche and Proctor & Gamble. After stints at top shops like TBWA/UK, Chiat Day and Crispin Porter Bogusky in Canada, Howard made his way to the states. Over the years his work has been used to inspire university students and snagged prestigious awards like a Gold Lion at Cannes and Gold at The One Show, to name a few. Howard’s work has even been inducted into the Canadian Advertising Hall of Fame. His creative philosophy is nicely captured by ad legend John Cage: “I can’t understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I’m frightened of the old ones.”
Pat Floyd, Digital Art Director
Arming the agency with more web design, graphic design and brand-building firepower is art director Pat Floyd, whose client experience runs the gamut from tourism to medical to e-commerce. He’s loaded up on his fair share of awards at a variety of Bay Area graphic design firms and ad agencies after graduating from USF with a B.A. in Mass Communications. His creativity even extends to the musical world where his tunes have gotten airplay on stations as far away as Belgium. He loves the creative challenges he tackles each day, because as Ursula K. Le Guin puts it, “The creative adult is the child who has survived.”
Please join us in welcoming Howard and Pat to the Schifino Lee team.
