John Cornette likes to make stuff. He started his career in New York as an interactive creative, slowing working his way through nearly every medium – from mobile to television and every screen in between. This approach lead him (earlier than most) to the realization that good ideas really are media agnostic. In other words, he likes making a television commercial just as much as an e-commerce site. Make them talk to each other and carry out the same marketing message? He’s a happy man. John’s experience included directing integrated work for Lenovo, Duracell and several General Mills products, and for it he’s been honored by the One Club, Cannes Lions, Communications Arts and the Clios. At EP, he’s added Verizon, Denny’s, L.L.Bean and Frye to the growing list of brands who look to him to build the future.
