David Martino

executive creative director

Nationally recognized for his creative achievements, David Martino brings 30+ years of creative direction experience to Dialog. His experience with big brands and results-oriented, award-winning national campaigns has earned him recognition from the Communication Arts Design Annual, PRINT’s Re­gional Design Annual, National Addys, and the New York Film Festival.

Known as a stringent brand builder, he is also a recognized and respected creative team builder and creative strategist. His experience leading creative teams includes creative director positions at advertising agencies, B-to-B marketing firms, and international consumer-based companies.

David was one of the founding members of T3, an Adweek Top 100 agency with capitalized billings over $230M. And at Tocquigny, he was recruited to help build the firm into a full-service agency. In less than a year, Tocquigny’s client roster had dou­bled — winning more awards than any other Austin agency.

In 2006, David started Martino Creative, a full-service agency specializing in strong identities through the consistent packaging of corporate print collateral, interactive web work, direct marketing, and broadcast. Previous to join­ing Dialog, David also served as creative director at Schlotzsky’s corporate, one of the fastest growing fast and casual restaurant chains, where he was instru­mental in building a strong strategic vision and brand consistency. Un­der his creative leadership, Schlotzsky’s successfully reinvented their image, design strategy, and creative materials from print to digital to broadcast.
