Portsmouth, N.H., August 2, 2016—Calypso Communications, an integrated creative and PR agency, recently bolstered support for its clients’ strategic business development by announcing the promotion of Marc Checket to Associate Art Director.
As a graphic designer at Calypso since 2014, Checket worked closely with clients to create video, print, and animation assets. In his new role he will continue to create dynamic designs while assuming greater responsibility for the overall direction of creative projects. Checket’s achievements often garner attention; he recently led the team that produced a promotional video for Mt. Agamenticus to the Sea Conservation Initiative, earning a “Gold Award of Excellence” from The Communicator Awards.
“Marc has the unique ability to take our clients’ wide range of often complex messaging and transform it into easy-to-understand, attractive, and engaging collateral,” said Senior Vice President and Creative Director Mike Teixeira. “His impressive leadership abilities and strategic thinking continually complement Calypso’s team of writers, illustrators, web and print designers, and PR professionals.”
Checket previously spent 13 years in New York City as a designer and art director in the entertainment advertising industry, most recently at Terry Hines & Associates (THA). While there, he worked closely with executives at large studios including Warner Brothers, Disney, and Focus Features to conceive and create commercial and trade campaigns promoting feature films, including Dallas Buyers Club and Moonrise Kingdom. Additionally, Checket managed a staff of artists and proofreaders to create more than 50 daily ads for publications across the country, including The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Boston Globe, and The Washington Post.
