DeeAnn started the Hive Advertising in 2003, after a decade at Citron Haligman Bedecarré (now AKQA), and five years at FCB/Chicago prior to that. She worked first as an art director then as a creative director, largely on consumer-facing brands, big and small, old and new, some with huge national budgets and some on a dime.

DeeAnn is one of the rare optimists in advertising. She used every experience she had in her early career as inspiration for the agency that she had always planned to open. She learned how to build trust with clients, motivate agency teams and do good work in less-than-perfect situations. She believes that no matter how impossible the task may seem, there’s a way to get it done—and get it done beautifully.
