- NEW YORK
Barton F. Graf has hired David Cardinali as head of integrated production. He most recently worked as an executive producer at Droga5. Several campaigns under his supervision for clients like Google, Under Armour, Hennessy and Newcastle Brown Ale have been honored in nearly every international award show.
Before his time at Droga5, Cardinali spent the better part of a decade in the production department at Grey NY. He contributed to that agency’s creative revival and his work on DirecTV and Febreze have been recognized globally.
“David obviously had the integrated production experience and talent, but it was the mixture of his creative instincts and Excel spreadsheet of a mind that really impressed me,” said Gerry Graf, founder and chief creative officer of Barton F. Graf.
Cardinali related, “I have been a huge fan of BFG’s work for some time, in fact, I remember distinctly the first time I saw the Clash and Boom Beach work and the smile it brought to my face. Joining a shop where the creative output is of the utmost importance--and with one of the best writers in the business in Gerry leading the way, it’s an incredibly exciting opportunity that I’m flattered to take.”
