As a copywriter for the last two decades, that foundation has informed Stewart’s approach to storytelling and enabled him to feel equally at home in the realms of TV, Print, Radio and Interactive.;Since joining Atmosphere as a Creative Director in 2007, Stewart has led the creative work on AT&T, Citi and Bud Light accounts, helping to launch AT&T’s awarding winning Where Do You Live e-commerce site, relaunch the Citi Never Sleeps mantra to a global audience and enable Bud Light’s Dude campaign to reach new monosyllabic glory in the online and mobile worlds.;Prior to joining Atmosphere, Stewart helped lead the American Express, SAP and AT&T Wireless accounts at Ogilvy New York, where he was a regular contributor to the renowned Official Card campaign and returned to his cartooning roots as part of the team on the seminal Adventures of Seinfeld & Superman campaign.
