To deepen its creative and leadership ranks, Minneapolis-based Solve has added Sean Smith as Executive Creative Director and Partner. Having worked at agencies across the country including Crispin Porter + Bogusky (Boulder), 180 and Mullen (LA) and Merkley (NYC), Smith’s developed powerful, imaginative campaigns for Domino’s, Coke Zero, Under Armour, Samsung, VW and Acura. His ideas have driven significant results for his clients and received broad recognition from Cannes, The One Show, FWA, Contagious, Communication Arts, Creativity and Fast Company.

Smith will lead a handful of clients and work with Solve Founders, Managing Creative Directors Hans Hansen and Eric Sorensen. “Sean’s gained rich experience and had success at some great agencies,” said Sorensen. “He’s prolific and wonderfully ambitious...all qualities that will serve the agency and our clients well,” Hansen added.

Smith’s excited to get acclimated with Solve and living in Minneapolis. “What Solve’s accomplished in five years is pretty amazing. I’m over the moon to join the team and do all I can to contribute to furthering the agency’s work and reputation,” Smith said.
