Armenian + Midwest + 20+ years in NYC Advertising

Originally from Ann Arbor, Michigan, I'm a creative director / copywriter, currently working freelance, and looking for staff. I create irreverent work, write saucy copy, got a Bachelor of Fine Arts from SVA in 2002, specialize in actually good work, campaign ideas, headlines, award-winning copy, TV production, and run-on sentences. 

I'm flexible on role-- I just want to make great work.

What My Bosses Say:


Chief Creative Officer, Publicis Kaplan Thaler

"Alex Avsharian is one of the most creative and gifted individuals I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Alex was instrumental in turning our tiny upstart agency into one of the fastest growing advertising companies in America. He created brilliantly funny, as well as deeply  emotional campaigns that have become an indelible part of our culture. He is also one of the best presenters I've ever encountered, a true gift that helped us, time and time again, to keep us on our winning streak. A brilliant talent that, I believe, would be a tremendous asset to any company."


Chief Creative Officer, Ogilvy Health NA

"Alex Avsharian is a rare breed. There are not many creatives in the industry that consistently deliver above bar creative, while being a strategic partner. Along with client presentation skills, he has the IQ to keep any great idea alive. If creatives were a horse race, I’d throw it all on Alex."

Executive Creative Director, DeVito/Verdi 

"I've had the pleasure of working closely with Alex Avsharian on and off for the last 6+ years at DeVito/Verdi, and he is an amazing talent. Alex consistently demonstrated an outstanding ability to craft compelling and persuasive advertising that not only met, but exceeded my and the clients expectations. Hilarious, touching, hard-hitting, or light-hearted, Alex makes it happen and leads others to the goal line. His exceptional leadership, creativity, writing skills, attention to detail, and dedication to delivering outstanding results make him an invaluable asset to any organization."

What My Reports Say:


Group Copy Supervisor, Harrison & Star

"Alex was one of the most important influences on me as a creative. In a turbulent time where he was asked to pitch new business while wrangling a BIKTARVY brand crisis, Alex never wavered in taking every opportunity to mentor me, while pushing the creative to new heights. And of course we won the pitch. Without fear or insecurity, Alex is able to mentor and grow his writers and his own writing at the same time, caring about your growth as a person and an employee. He was always able to take a breath mid-storm and impart key knowledge about the craft that I still use to this day."


What My Dog Says:



"Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force."
