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.
