Buckhorn joins Carmichael Lynch as group creative director

Dean Buckhorn has joined Carmichael Lynch in the role of group creative director, having been recruited by Carmichael Lynch's chief creative officer Dave Damman. 

Buckhorn's famous work for clients from Coca-Cola to Miller Lite has gained international recognition for over twenty years, with awards coming from as far away as England's D&AD and the Cannes International Advertising Festival.  

He is the author of the long-running TIME Magazine ad series that was named campaign of the decade by the prestigious One Club for Art & Copy in New York. He also created the popular Travelers Insurance campaign, which has won top honors from advertising professional groups for several years running. 

"In a business of one-hit wonders, Dean is remarkable for his consistency, having created hit campaign after hit campaign, across media, and across time," says Damman. "Imagine the trust that inspires in clients."

Drawn from the East Coast to the vibrant Minneapolis advertising scene during the ‘90s, Buckhorn spent two decades partnering with numerous art directors at Publicis-owned Fallon, achieving success across a diverse range of accounts. 

"I'm not someone who jumps from agency to agency," remarks Buckhorn, "I look forward to a long, productive time at Carmichael Lynch."
