NEW YORK, USA // Frank Anselmo has had one of the most unconventionally prolific creative careers. Before becoming Executive Creative Director of the New York Mets, Frank spent a devout decade rising to Creative Director at BBDO New York where his unconventional thinking garnered prestigious global creative awards from the Clios, Cannes, One Show, and Art Directors Club, etc.
Anselmo's innovative ideas paved the way for non-traditional work the agency would soon produce and transformed the creative culture. Frank spent the following decade as a gun-for-hire creative director at over 75 companies in the world including Apple, creating numerous high-profile campaigns.
As a creative leader, Anselmo cemented his place in the record books by leading more young creatives to globally-awarded work than any educator/professor in history with the “Unconventional Advertising” college program he created & founded at The School of Visual Arts in New York. Frank's program is globally recognized as “The Most Awarded Ad Class In History” after single-handedly winning more major global creative awards than any entire ad school in the world for 12 years–strong. His program led SVA to winning eight consecutive ADC School of The Year awards. Anselmo’s students have gone on to land jobs at Google, Wieden+Kennedy, Disney, Nike, Apple, etc.
Anselmo's undying curiosity to sharpen his leadership skills led him to Harvard University where he completed his certification in Collaborative Leadership. Other career highlights include leading creative workshops in the Netherlands & China, contributing to the legendary “Hey Whipple” book, working on the last official John Lennon music video, and being ranked the #1 most awarded professor in the world.
