FOUNDER | CREATIVE DIRECTOR
A highly decorated veteran of the internet advertising wars, this semi-young man has been entrenched in the world of all things digital for the past two decades. But after years of free world travel and countless dinners, he was fed up with watching agencies throw their clients' money around more liberally than a frisbee at Burning Man. Thus, he founded Humdinger & Sons.
In his former big ad shop glory days, Will was a multi-award winning digital creative director who spent the majority of his career in San Francisco, Seattle and New York at the likes of AKQA, Dolby Laboratories, OLSON, Wexley School for Girls, and Yarnell Will, the shop he co-founded and merged with Olson in 2007 in San Francisco. His accolades include: coming up with a new brand for Belize (the country); co-creating Lebron James’ first Nike website, the Chamber of Fear; and leading creative advertising for several Fortune 500 companies, including Target, Capital One and Dolby Labs.
His free time is spent building homes and yelling at other peoples dogs.
FOUNDER | ACCOUNT LEAD
Having built his career hustling in NYC's concrete jungle at Ogilvy & Mather and AKQA, Andrew brings a truly holistic perspective to the table while being the sole ginger of Humdinger. From big brand strategy and traditional marketing to pioneering new experiences online, his knowledge is uniquely eclectic.
In his former big ad shop glory days, Berg was deeply entrenched in the American Express and Google accounts. He played a key role in establishing American Express' new enterprise-wide strategic vision and creative platform that's currently working to transform the brand image, disrupt perceptions, drive reappraisal and scale. At AKQA, Andrew led the team across all Google efforts, including Google Play, Nexus, Google in Education, Creative Sandbox, Google Green and Google TV.
As co-founder of Humdinger and Sons, Andrew leads all client relations, digital strategy, project coordination and janitorial services.
Andy joins our team as Account Manager and, more notably, “Third Andrew.” His humble upbringing on the unforgiving streets of Fargo, North Dakota formed an easy-going-meets-hard-working attitude that he now brings to each of our clients and projects.
Previously, Andy spent the last six years of his professional life in a more traditional creative context, managing global branding and packaging design initiatives for clients like Jack Daniel’s, Facebook, Samsung, and Woodford Reserve. Outside of work, Andy can be found honing his craft as a middling home chef for his wife and son.
DESIGNER | THINKER | SNAP PEA EATER
Stemming from the rocky outcrops of Colorado, Johnny has a BFA in Graphic Design stuffed in his back pocket from Fort Hays State University. He has joined Humdinger as a highly talented designer of the digital realm.
Winner of the 2002 Colorado Springs Regional Spelling Bee, he also has a knack for words (and occasionally puts our sloppy copywriters to shame). In his spare time, he can be found laying down harmonic beatz under the R&B pseudonym Johnny Three Chainz. No, he doesn't have a demo yet.
Whilst in the middle of a long-winded explanation to a group of young AIGA creatives, one lone student raised his hand to ask a simple question. That question led to a phone call, which led to an internship, which led to a full-time gig here at Humdinger.
A product of the incredibly awesome creative program at Fort Hays State University in Kansas, Andrew has now joined Humdinger & Sons on a permanent basis. Alongside his strong illustrative and conceptual skills, Mr. Horn can solve a Rubik's Cube in under 60 seconds. Seriously, we're serious.
VISUAL ARTIST | INTERFACE GURU
When we decided it was time to extend Humdinger's international presence, we knew the heart of central Europe was the place to go. Putting the "Oh!" in iOS designs at Humdinger & Sons Czech Republic, Lubos leads our interfacing and iconography department with his whip-smart user experience designs and multi-faceted illustrations.
ANIMATOR + ILLUSTRATOR
Deep inside the capital of Lithuania lies Humdingers immensely talented and semi-mild mannered animator, Mantas Graužinis (Say it with me... Man-Tas Grow-Gin-Is). A man of productivity and great sports, he holds a world record in chair swivelling and holds a gold in cracking super smooth animations.
Mantas helps lead Humdinger's video animation studio from conception to illustration to animation.
Joining Humdinger from the metropolis of Washington (Kansas, not D.C.), Colin holds some fancy degree from Fort Hays State University. Colin has designed and crafted everything from board games to packaging to brand identities, making him nothing short of splendiferous.
In his free time, Colin enjoys collecting freckles and making his all-too-real cricket noise during awkward silences. He is also a world-class athlete, most notably achieving the title of 2015 Champion of Dingleball.
Commonly referred to as the Godfather, Heinemann's list of accomplishments range from coining the term "PBR ME ASAP" (yes, really) to playing a round of Parcheesi with the Pope and letting him graciously win.
As the founder of Titus Oates, his role in helping emerging and thriving companies build or improve their brands or businesses, and create new markets for their products and services, has proven to be an invaluable asset to a terrific partnership. Additionally, Greg selectively invests in or has started new businesses in the areas of fashion, sporting goods, health food and supplements, and mobile applications.
The next time you stroll into an Apple store, take a close look at the third-party products on the shelf. Maybe you'll see the Adidas Smartball, Equil Smartpen or some new, mind blowing light bulb technology. Regardless, chances are you're putting your eyes on a product Hof helped get on that shelf.
As president and CEO of SPRING, Hof is an essential partner for Humdinger when it comes to successfully getting products into retail. Key word there being "successful." The result is an outstanding strategy and implementation plan designed to align with market needs, provide access, and once there, maximize what can be achieved.
CANADIAN MOBILE DEVELOPMENT UNIT
Often referred to as "Nick"—or, as they say in Canada, "Nick"—Enchev has led mobile architecture and development for several Fortune 500 companies' platforms, including: Molson Coors, Kraft and General Mills.
As founder of Ensoft, a mobile application and gaming developer, Enchev leads Humdinger's mobile development and was the lead brain behind Krono, our highly popular iOS video app which was a collaborative effort stemming from Humdinger Labs.
