Creative marketing and advertising agency Øuterkind has hired four talented marketing leaders: Associate Creative Director Joanna Kammer, Account Supervisor Alyssa Montoya, Social Media Manager Alia Miller and Partner Jason Wozny to support its rapid growth and existing client needs.
Joanna Kammer is a seasoned creative leader who will lead all creative initiatives at Øuterkind. Previously, she was owner/creative director of her own firm, where she led the development of brand identities for clients such as T-Mobile, Eckrich Foods and more. Before that, she was senior art director at Grey.
Alyssa Montoya joined Øuterkind as account supervisor and will lead efforts across a number of beauty and hair care brands. She brings more than 10 years of experience in graphic design, branding, website creation and account management to the team. Most recently she was a senior account director at Moxie Sozo working with clients such as Mauna Loa, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co and Kodiak Cakes.
Alia Miller has spent several years crafting content-worthy solutions through social media at prior agencies, such as Bayshore Solutions and Orbit Design for an array of small to mid-sized B2B and B2C brands. She’s passionate about strategic digital marketing and creating captivating content for clients.
Jason Wozny joins Øuterkind with more than two decades of experience working with clients including Pepsi, Ford, Ski-Doo, The Lincoln Motor Company, MillerCoors, Climate Reality Project, Progressive Insurance, Harley-Davidson Insurance and Mercedes Benz Canada. His focus at the agency will be on crafting digitally led solutions for Øuterkind’s existing roster of clients in the automotive, CPG and powersports space.
“I am excited to join such a talented and driven team who truly believe in the power of people, creativity and connection,” said Wozny. “Marketing agencies, specifically in the experiential space, were one of the hardest hit during the pandemic. This has forced us to think and market differently, and Øuterkind is clearly winning this battle.”
After more than two decades of traditional branding, strategy, and experiential marketing agency experience, founders Christian Gani, Ben Keane, Brady Clarke and Michael Dill joined forces to form Øuterkind in 2020, so they could focus on providing innovative solutions for clients.
Øuterkind’s secret sauce is helping brands shift their marketing and execution strategies to adjust to the pandemic and post-pandemic lifestyles and economy. In the past year, the shop has transitioned from working sessions in a living room to a new office in Denver’s RiNo district. They have executed work for top-tier brands including Red Bull, Ford, Nissan, New Belgium, Volcon, and Polaris.
“The effects of having our world so disrupted over the past 18 months has left a lasting impression on the way people behave,” Gani said. “This is a time when brands are more interested than ever in innovative and un-tested ways to connect with consumers. As a marketer, how could you not be excited about that?”
