On this episode of Dear Art Producer, Heather sits down with Dan Southwick, Senior Integrated Producer at LinkedIn Creative Studio. Originally from Chicago, Dan relocated to California to escape the cold. With bass in hand as a touring musician, and an education in photography under his belt, he stumbled quite naturally into the field of advertising in San Francisco. For the bulk of his career to date, he has led production efforts at creative agencies and internal creative departments at many well known tech companies such as Meta, Airbnb, Apple, Eleven Inc., and Goodby Silverstein & Partners.
In their conversation, Heather and Dan discuss what it is like being a musician turned art producer, working as part of an internal agency, and how constant reinventing and evolving is part of the industry.
In an industry where the rules are always changing, it’s helpful to hear from those on the front lines. Heather Elder is the visionary behind NotesFromARepsJournal.com; visit HeatherElder.com for industry updates, stunning photography and video, and the artists behind the work.
