Carmichael Lynch Hires Allison Hayes from Venables, Bell & Partners as Creative Director

Allison Hayes has joined Carmichael Lynch as its newest creative director.

Hayes joins the creative agency from Venables Bell & Partners in San Francisco, where she was the creative lead on clients including 23&Me, Audi, Massage Envy, 76 and Phillips 66. She’s also spent time at 72andSunny, where she worked on Samsung and Sonos, and Arnold Worldwide in Boston.

“I’m thrilled to join the fine folks at Carmichael Lynch. I was attracted to their collaborative culture, creative storytelling and willingness to adapt in our changing industry,” said Hayes. “Marty has built an impressive team and I’m excited to be a part of the continued evolution of this company.”

Over her career, Hayes has helped create such notable work as Audi’s timely Super Bowl commercial, “Daughter,” which aired in the wake of the presidential election and Samsung’s “Next Big Thing with Jay Z,” an exclusive album launch with the iconic artist. Her work has been recognized by numerous international award shows including Cannes, AICP, the One Show and others.

“We’re so excited to have Allison join the creative team at Carmichael Lynch,” said Carmichael Lynch CCO Marty Senn. “She’s got an amazing track record of doing big, culturally iconic work that gets talked about beyond the usual advertising circles. I can’t wait to see what she does here.”

An art director by trade, Hayes also writes and maintains a fair-trade fashion brand, called The & Collection, which champions artisans in India.
