Over 30 years ago, Damien laced on a pair of boots and entered the world of commercial production as a grip. Working in Rochester, NY, Damien began as crew on 35mm commercial and corporate productions for Eastman Kodak, Xerox and Bausch and Lomb. Not too long after, he printed up business cards with the title “Producer” and hasn’t looked back.
As a producer, then creative and art director, Harvey led agencies in the Rochester area, which specialized in commercial production and multimedia. During that period, Damien won numerous national awards for advertising and production excellence.
In 2003, Harvey was hired by a consulting firm in Washington, DC as a Senior Producer in charge of political and issue advertising. That association blossomed into a 14-year stay in DC that has seen Damien produce over 1000 TV commercials, produce multimedia communications in Baghdad, Iraq for the U.S. State Department and create television and web production for over 20 national associations and organizations.
Today, Damien is the President and Creative Director for the damien harvey group — an eclectic group of seasoned advertising professionals who know that an ad agency’s only purpose is to provide its clients with intuitive and creative messaging.
