2014 One Show Social Jury

Kevin Brady

Executive Creative Director


New York

It's been a winding road to advertising for Kevin: tennis professional, school teacher, and a long career in music. After five records, a gig for Clinton's inaugural ball and several unfortunate bi-level haircuts, he moved to New York to start a salsa band. For some reason the name "Kevin Brady" did not attract much attention in the world of salsa, so it was on to advertising.

The transition from writing a three-minute pop song to a thirty second TV commercial was surprisingly smooth. His work has been recognized by TED and has received over 40 statues of questionable metallurgical origin from all major award shows. He is most proud of campaigns for Milk, NET10, PUMA, Newcastle and Prudential.

In Kevin's fifteen years in the business, he has tried to constantly evolve; to push every medium and to create honest, unique work with a purpose. He is happy to be able to come to work every day at a place that believes in these same values.

Kevin lives in the East Village with his young daughter and girlfriend / partner / baby mama (we need to invent a better word for this) and plays accordion in a rock band that gigs at least once every five years.
