Eric Schutte recently returned to DeVito/Verdi as the Executive Creative Director. Although he has worked for multiple agencies, big and small, DeVito Verdi is where he began his journey in advertising a little over twenty years ago when Sal DeVito first hired him as Jr. Art Director.
Over his 20-year career, Eric has worked on a wide range of projects--from Super Bowl commercials to direct marketing pieces. He has created numerous award-winning campaigns for some largest brand names in the world, a list that includes Mount Sinai, Volvo, FedEx and Pepsi.
Eric’s work has won dozens of awards; including Cannes, The One Show, D&AD, Clios, Graphis, AICP, Archive, Communication Arts, The Art Directors Club, Addys, Obies, Tellys and Effies as an art director, writer, and designer. Over the years, he has also gained valuable experience and sharpened his craft working for some of the most prestigious agencies and most highly respected creative directors in the business.
In Eric’s spare time, he enjoys drinking in life, sip by sip. Maybe it’s a white-knuckle ride on his Harley with his wife or just laughing and playing with his four beautiful children, Eric believes life is to be lived to its fullest.
