Danni Marks

Advertising Director

Who are you?

I’m a professional designer / artist and I’ve been in the design game for 11 years. My specialties are web, print, illustration, and email marketing. I am a lifelong learner – I’m always seeking more knowledge, data, inspiration, or interesting facts to feed my curiosity and spark original ideas which I apply to my work.

What do you do?

As the Advertising Director at 5 Stones, I connect with clients to help them realize their online marketing goals which our team then brings to life. It is a fact that in this day and age the market is saturated with so many marketing messages that you have to raise the bar to stand out. Here at 5 Stones, we are passionate about creating unique digital ads which make our clients shine. Creating campaigns which work for our clients to save them time and produce measurable results is one of the things we do best!

Why do you love working for 5 Stones Media?

Nothing energizes me more than working in a creative environment and seeing clients’ visions come to life. I work with an amazing group of creatives here at 5 Stones and we have a great work culture - as a designer, what more could you ask for?

What is the most important lesson you ever learned?

Life is not about finding yourself, it’s about creating yourself.

What is your secret superpower?

I can make mac-n-cheese in the microwave.

Who are your creative influences?

My creative influences are mostly fine artists, both classic and modern. Michelangelo, Degas, Albrecht Durer, M.C. Escher, and Dali are some of my favorites. Their methodologies for creation and subject matter intrigue me. I’m also constantly on Dribbble checking out what’s new in the design world.

What is one thing you can't live without?

Coffee!!

What are your hobbies outside of work?

I am a Gemini, so I have many interests! In my “spare time” I am usually kickboxing for fitness, spending time with friends, watching movies, drawing, or doing volunteer work.
