Robbie Izar – ACD/Copywriter

about me


xx ABOUT ME xx

I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. But if you’re looking for a myopic and self-aggrandizing creative, you’re in the wrong place. What I do have is a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you – if you happen to be the person in charge of replenishing breakfast buffets. But if you hire me, I will find you. But please send me your address and directions…my ex changed her Wi-Fi password and I’m out of data.


As an ACD, I've managed teams working on everything from social, digital, experiential to broadcast. I've wrangled low-budget-no-permit-just-act-like-you-belong-there shoots in grocery parking lots to productions for global clients in far off lands like Cape Town, South Africa. But most of all, I just enjoy helping creatives hone their craft and become brand stewards by realizing that great concepts are the ones that are consistent from content to purchase, regardless of the channel. I love leading teams and creating campaigns that cross multiple platforms and still make sense.
