John Fulbrook has joined Translation LLC as group creative director, design.  

Fulbrook, who was most recently group creative director, SVP at The Martin Agency, will be charged with leading and growing Translation’s design team and helping bring his innovative design thinking to the agency’s current and future partners. Fulbrook will be reporting to chief creative officer John Norman. 

"Branding is all about design--John approaches a design problem from a storytelling, cultural and technology pov,” said Norman.  “His design thinking translates the visceral experience into a consumer experience. John will be a tremendous asset for bringing Translation’s ethos to this discipline.”

“Translation sits at the juxtaposition of culture and storytelling,” said Fulbrook. “The idea of marrying culture, storytelling and then design seemed like an incredibly powerful place to be playing.” 

Fulbrook got his start in design as sr. art director for book publisher Simon & Schuster and was creative director for Collins from 2008-2010. In addition, Fulbrook served as professor at the School of Visual Arts from 2004-2016.
