Sydney C. Ross

I’m a proud Texas Bama living in NYC. I came here as a part of the first class of Verizon AdFellows in 2017. It was an 8-month advertising program in which I rotated through different agencies in different departments, gaining insight into each part of the advertising process.


I was recently accepted into the Adweek Rising Mentor Program, which is an extension of the Adweek Executive Mentor Program. It connects rising marketers, who have 5-9 years of experience, with successful senior-level marketers to help empower the next generation of diverse marketing talent.


I am a self-taught designer. I started creating marketing materials like posters and announcements using PowerPoint, but I wanted to create higher quality content. So, I downloaded Creative Suite and started watching tutorials. My bachelor's degree is in marketing, but I've always been interested in the creative side of advertising, so I decided to put my passions together and provide not only strategy for my clients, but the visual executions as well.


I’m currently a full-time Associate Art Director at a Publicis agency in Manhattan. When I’m not working, you can catch me reading the latest Kate White book or streaming a new show (currently Batman: The Animated Series on HBO Max). I also volunteer for a couple of animal rescue organizations as a graphic designer.


Here you'll find a collection of my digital work, including banners, social posts, animations, illustrations, and emails. You can also find out about the services I provide for businesses — I specialize in print collateral, marketing packages, and presentations.


I hope you enjoy the work I've showcased here and look forward to helping you grow your own business. I’m always looking to create bold designs and help people bring their brands and visions to life, so let’s work!
