Chris Graves

Chief Creative Officer

I oversee all aspects of brand storytelling for clients like Lexus,The Ritz-Carlton, and Indian Motorcycle, among others. My global responsibilities also include serving for more than 10 years as a member of the Saatchi & Saatchi Worldwide Creative Board. Under my leadership, Team One continues its mission to reimagine the emerging media landscape for some of the world’s most aspirational brands.

With a career spanning over two decades, my work has been recognized by nearly every significant creative competition. I started my career in New York working for Ogilvy & Mather and TBWA/Chiat/Day, before returning home to my Southern California roots, where I currently live with my wife and three children.

At one point or another, I've been inspired by everyone from da Vinci to Dr. Seuss. But the most valuable wisdom has always come from listening to the consumer. The best creative inspiration comes from human truths, the kind you only get from listening and observing carefully.

When not at the office, my interests include documentaries, small-batch bourbon and occasional unlicensed dog breeding.
