COLE DAVIS

Working in San Francisco

Born in San Francisco but raised in the Czech Republic, Germany, Canada, and the United States, claiming Utah as home.

In 2019, I graduated in advertising and film from Brigham Young University,
the #1 college for advertising. There I received several awards from The One Club and D&AD.

 

When did agencies stop making their own ideas? I love to combine my passion for ideation, and craft in making concepts come to life. My inventive role as a Content Creator at BBDO San Francisco allows me to have my hands on an idea from birth to final delivery. This way I can sweat the details and make something I'm truly proud of.
