Hi! My name is Joanna, and I believe the stories we share can save lives.
My name is Joanna Reagan Ewing, and I'm an Executive Creative Director and Consultant focused on relevant and substantive brand marketing, strategy, and storytelling. For the past decade, I've held senior leadership roles within both emerging and established brands.
As a Creative Director, I strive to cultivate cultural transformation through sustained effort alongside those who share a vision: to create a more compassionate, peaceful, and equitable world. For real!
I love building diverse collaborative teams, connecting the dots between data and culture, and delivering impactful creative that manifests a human, emotional connection with customers and audiences around the globe.
“I love this customer very much,” Ewing says. “I think the most inspiring thing is that lately, and I know we all see this, the fact that young people are really willing to put their values out there and come together.”
