BIO
Hi. I'm Rosswell, a named I inherited from my grandfather (because what other logical explanation could there be for a name like that)? I’m a writer, creative director and tabletop game designer who has been lucky enough to win awards for all three. I currently work at DDB where I’m a Group Creative Director. I run Aflac, Lipton, and Royal Canin. I also work on Skittles and Kroger.
Before DDB, I was at BBDO, writing for everything from Snickers and FedEx to Subway and Lowe’s. And before that I was at CPB Boulder where I worked on too many things to list. I also helped open (and close) the CPB New York office that no one knew we had opened (due to the closing).
