David Povill

Creative Director


Los Angeles / US

An award-winning writer with over a decade of experience, David Povill was born with a pen in his hand, much to his mother's discomfort.

After honing his skills at the VCU Adcenter, he then went on to work at some of the top agencies in the industry, including Wieden + Kennedy, Crispin Porter +Bogusky, Chiat/Day, Deutsch, and now, 180LA. His work on brands like Old Spice (“Smellcome to Manhood”) and Volkswagen have won numerous pencils and lions, and his Super Bowl spot, "The Force" held a Guinness World Record for most shared ad ever.

In his spare time, he enjoys wearing sweaters and eating soup.
