Tom Adams

Executive Creative Director

Deutsch LA

Los Angeles

Tom is an Executive Creative Director at Deutsch LA, where he works across a number of brands on the agency's roster. Hailing from the bayous of New Orleans, Tom started his career at what was (at the time) a small shop called Crispin, Porter and Bogusky. The first ad he worked on was for a local Miami company that manufactured kidney dialysis machines. From there, he helped launch one of the most successful anti-smoking efforts of all time — the truth campaign. During his time at Crispin, Tom also worked on iconic brands such as MINI, IKEA, Slim Jim, Geek Squad and the re-launching of Burger King’s classic line, “Have It Your Way.” After playing an instrumental role in Crispin's growth for more than nine years, Tom co-founded the creative boutique shop, goodness Mfg. The agency was quickly chosen to help launch Google’s first phone, Nexus, in addition to brand partnerships with Toshiba, Under Armour, Lucas Arts and the National Council of American Indians.
