WHO IS grewvy?
Dennis Pettigrew, creative director, is grewvy.
An advertising and design veteran with global, national and regional brand experience developing integrated marketing and design campaigns, I have been fortunate enough to work with an eclectic mix of high-profile brands across all media - tech, QSR, retail, CPG, beer, wine, spirits, real estate, entertainment, automotive and more. As a highly conceptual, design focused, hands-on creative director, brand strategist and content creator, my aim is to create smart, strategic, aesthetically pleasing work that makes clients nervous.
After UCLA, I graduated from CSULB in '97 with a BFA in Advertising & Design. I've since worked as an integrated ECD, CD, AD and Designer at agencies such as FCB, Butler, Shine, Stern & Partners, Alcone, INK Agency, Organic, Inc. and Voicebox Creative.
