Dave Hughes
Art Director | Creative

After more than twenty-five years of working together, Dave Hughes and Bill Garrison have shared a lot of ideas. Today they share a place in the Ad Federation's Hall of Achievement, where they were inducted in 2006. Their creative careers started a few hundred miles apart. Dave was an Art Director at Kelly Michener in Lancaster, PA, after attending the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. Bill took a job as a copywriter at Ketchum Advertising upon graduating from Carnegie Mellon University. When Dave got tired of living among the Amish, he returned to Pittsburgh to accept a job at Ketchum Advertising where he found Bill sound asleep at his desk. A true partnership was born. They eventually became Vice Presidents and Creative Directors at a number of agencies, including Ketchum, Werner Chepelsky & Partners (now Mullen), Egan/St. James and Blattner Brunner, handling a wide range of accounts from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies. Their work has received numerous accolades, including recognition in Communication Arts Advertising Annual and The One Show Book. They were named Obie Award finalists for outdoor advertising, and Kelly Award finalists for creating one of the 25 best magazine campaigns in the country. They have also received more than 150 Pittsburgh Addy Awards, including three Best Of Show honors and several Regional and National Addys.
