I’m a car buff. I was lucky enough to work on Jeep for a few years at BBDO Detroit. Jeep was and still is one of the best car brands ever. I worked with some really talented people including my partner, Paul Szary. Passionate, dedicated, talented as hell—he was the art director on all these ads.
Here are some of my favorites ads that we did.

For the launch of Sony’s first digital SLR, the goal was to highlight the dust-proof nature of the Sony’s built-in dust protection system. The launch was an incredible success and first year sales exceeded initial projections. Credits: Robert Frolich, Art Director; Agency: Bagby.
When Samsung launched their flagship phone, the Galaxy S III, they asked us to create a Times Square event that had never been done before—based on the sharing capabilities of the phone. So we asked ourselves, what do people always do in Times Square? They take pictures.
And then, we took it to extremes.
Four days in Times Square later and with over 1,200 folks sharing their best moves to the giant Samsung screen—it was part of Samsung’s biggest mobile phone launch ever.

DePaul University needed a new branding campaign.
I was happy to help.
TransUnion asked for a total rebrand. Working with the design agency, Avenue, I led the team that re-designed and overhauled their old school website. Working with UX, developers and content strategists, we created a thoroughly modern site with a clean and streamlined interface built for today.

Samsung has one of the fastest growing pages in Facebook’s history, skyrocketing from 11,000 likes to over 11 million in a year. Working with our tech and social teams, I led the creative team that helped build the interactive guide to their Galaxy phones. It was a site within Facebook that included real-time RSS feeds of news and videos about Galaxy phones and a 3D viewer for every model plus their features. Some of the things we did have never been done before on Facebook.
Sprint launched a new, faster 4G LTE network in Chicago. We created an immersive challenge asking Chicagoans to test out the new network with a series of Instagram challenges. Turn out was impressive and it was a complete success.
