NEW YORK, USA // Good enough is never enough is the simple mantra Adam Hessel has always lived by in his career as a New York advertising creative. Spending more than 2 decades on the consumer side, and now with H&S NY, Adam has collaborated with some of the best talent in the biz, including Linda Kaplan Thaler, Erik Vervroegen, Donny Deutsch, Nicholas Capanear, Kathy Delaney and Spike Lee. These creative leaders began by helping to inspire his work and in turn helped him transform brands and influence pop culture itself.

Adam is proud to have worked at a number of the world’s greatest agencies including: GSW, Deutsch, SpikeDDB, TBWA Chiat Day, The Kaplan Thaler Group and Publicis.

With passion for hard work and to push high creativity, Adam, has garnered many of the creative industry’s top awards which include: Cannes Lions, The One Show, Clio Awards, ANDY Awards, Mercury Awards, London International Awards, Lürzer’s Archive – among others.

Since making the jump to healthcare, Adam has continued to blaze new creative trails and his work on CMV Foundation, Miracle Feet and NYC Botanics have found yet more accolades. But if you ask Adam, it’s never enough. There are more boundaries to be broken, more creative barriers to be shattered, and bigger ideas to be found.
