As a Creative Director, I believe everyone is creative and everyone can (and should) contribute to solving for a client's opportunity. It is my job to unleash, guide, and maximize each person's creative toolset. ”

The past few years have been really fun, anything but normal, and very difficult to explain on a linear resume.
On The Side
My wife and I designed, built, and operated an award winning restaurant. Now sold, Little Sparrow won dozens of awards for food and cocktails, interior design, and community involvement. Especially fun – we were featured on BravoTV as one of the 16 Best New Restaurants in the U.S.
While freelancing as a Designer and Creative Director, we spent much of 2017 and early 2018 traveling the world. About a month each in Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, England, Austria, Thailand, Vietnam, and Hong Kong.
And now settled in Santa Monica, CA.
To gain flexibility to operate the restaurant, and then travel the world, I switched to Freelance. Clients include(d); Bean Craft, Black Box, Dragon Global, MCM Venture Partners, Dr. Schulze's American Botanical Pharmacy, Living Healthy, Recess, SKUR, TBA21, and Galvanize.
"Bruce Marsh is without a doubt one of the best I have worked for. Two reasons. One, he cares. He takes creativity very seriously and takes pride in his team coming up with an ingenious solution. And two, he takes action. Lots of people can talk the talk, but few walk the walk. If Bruce says that he is going to get something done — I don't care what it is — put him in charge, and he will work with the kind of tenacity that makes other people say, "Hey, man. Do you ever sleep?"
– D. Adams, Creative Strategist
"I am grateful to have worked with such a wonderful leader and person. A true inspiration that still lingers in my veins."
– J. Strand, Associate Design Director
"Bruce is adept at creating an elegant blend of creative prowess and keen business insights. As the creative lead within the Interactive and Direct department at Carmichael Lynch, Bruce demonstrated time and again, the ability to translate campaign brand ideas into relevant and compelling experiences via the web and core marketing collateral. This trait in most is quite unique and Bruce has it in spades."
– F. James, Branding Strategist
"Bruce is a person you want to see every day. He brings a jolt of fresh energy about him. As a boss, he always wanted me to succeed. He always wanted me to be happy. And he always knew what he was doing, regardless of the task. Those are rare leadership qualities in any field."
– T.S. Major, Creative Director
