Hush announced that Katie Hepp will be joining the design agency as director of production. For much of her career, Hepp has acted as both a production leader and mentor with a focus on streamlining production for clients, while supporting creative teams.
“Katie has vision. She knows what makes creative businesses work and is singularly guided by what’s best for our clients and their projects,” said Hush partner David Schwarz. “Her mid-western honesty and adaptive personality help her figure out the most complex of our diverse design projects.”
Hepp joined agency StrawberryFrog shortly after its U.S. launch, spending four years growing the digital department, hiring designers, producers, user experience specialists and technologists. At The Barbarian Group, she led production for GE.
Since then, she has worked as an executive producer acting on behalf of brands and organizations such as the Clinton Global Initiative, the Rockefeller Foundation, Pampers, Scion, smartUSA and P&G Innovation.
“I’m so excited to join this talented team. It’s an amazing experience to collaborate with such interesting minds and on the diversity and caliber of projects that come in on a weekly basis. Everything is pushing boundaries which means I get to develop new tools and methods to help define the future of a creative company,” said Hepp.
Hush has also hired production coordinator Edith Mora and client services coordinator Michelle DeCurtis.
