Senior creative duo “Mister” joins Mistress as the independent agency’s latest addition in a streak of new hires. Made up of Art Director, Michelle “Miche” Sieg and Copywriter, Rose Chirillo, the team brings new creative chemistry to the ever-growing agency.
Mister, whose name comes from a combination of the two's initials and a playful subversion of gender stereotypes in a male-dominated industry, brings experience working on brands like Grubhub and Taco Bell, as well as Mistress clients like Chambord and Ibotta, having collaborated with the agency before.
Before the two met, Miche spent the majority of her art direction upbringing working in branded content and music. Her most well-known work was with Intel and Lady Gaga for her 2016 Grammy performance, for which she won a Gold Cannes Lion and Clio Music award. She has also worked for brands like Nixon, Ultimate Ears, Hyundai, and Pacifico.
Rose has a dual-background in advertising and entertainment and has written original content for brands including Amazon, Staples, Panda Express, HBO, and more. Some of her most notable work includes a PromaxBDA-winning television spot for Netflix that ran during the Emmys and starred Ricky Gervais.
When asked about the addition of Mister, Mistress Partner and Executive Creative Director, Scott Harris said, “Rose and Miche are wise and creative beyond their years and I’m just thrilled to have them working for us. From the first moment we met them, it was obvious that they were a very special team and we had to do everything we could to keep them. They’re a huge win for our creative department.”
Miche and Rose’s latest work for Mistress features celebrity superfan, Kristen Bell, alongside a colorful cast of characters for Spindrift sparkling water. The team has also contributed to a number of upcoming new business wins.
“Maybe it was the similarities in our names that first gave it away, but we always knew we had something sparkly with Mistress,” says Rose. “And we’re excited to keep growing with such an amazing team,” adds Miche.
