Tony Bartolucci is a creative director and artist.
From 2013 until mid-2018 Tony lived in the Netherlands where he served as creative director at 180 Amsterdam, leading work for ASICS, and also creating campaigns for PlayStation, Heineken and Eli Lilly & Co. Before that, while at DDB New York, his work for the New York Lottery was partially credited with the agency's creative resurgence, and helped them to be named as ‘Agency to Watch’ by Advertising Age in 2013.
Tony studied graphic design at Ohio State University's Department of Industrial, Interior and Visual Communication Design where he focused on typography, identity and user interface design, graduating cum laude in 2003. He started his career as a designer and was soon lured by the storytelling aspect of advertising.
He grew up in a small college town outside of Cleveland, Ohio where he injured himself while skateboarding, BMX biking and swimming in a filthy abandoned rock quarry.
His work has been recognized at Cannes, the One Show, ADC Young Guns, London International Awards and the ADDYs – has been covered by Fast Company, The Guardian, Men's Health, Vanity Fair, Glamour, Fox News and Yahoo – and has been featured by Communication Arts, Campaign, Creative Review, Creativity Online, Ad Age and Shots.
His clients have included PlayStation, adidas, New York Lottery, Starbucks, Ad Council, Cotton, ASICS, State Farm, New Balance, Verizon, Snapple, Crush Soda, Foot Locker, eBay, The Joyce Theater, The University of Michigan, Bravo Network, W.W. Norton & Company, DL1961 Premium Denim and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
