ADVERTISING JURY CHAIR: TED ROYER
Executive Creative Director, Droga5
Ted is a partner and executive creative director at Droga5, a global advertising agency based in New York. Originally from Philadelphia, Ted graduated from the Atlanta Portfolio Center in 1995. From there his advertising career took him to Singapore, Argentina and Australia working on accounts like ESPN and Heineken - it was as fun as it sounds. After a trip around the world, his feet finally started to hurt, and he landed back in the US, where he helped start Droga5 in 2006. For all the travels and hard work, he's won a bunch of Lions, Pencils and other awards people forget about days later.
As a Droga5 veteran, he has worked on almost every account from the agency’s inception – from PUMA to Kraft to Coke Zero – and looks forward to the many more to come. He lives with his fiancé and baby boy, Maximus, in Brooklyn.
