Award winning Chief Creative Emerita/Designer John Mamus has relocated his creative agency, MAMUS, to the South Tampa area to bring a New York and European high-end creative sensibility to the region, according to Mr. Mamus.

Prior to starting his own firm in 2007, John Mamus spent his career creating design, creative, web design, video and print campaigns for advertising powerhouse agencies Ogilvy, Young & Rubicam, Deutsch, Merkley + Partners for global brands such as Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Starwood Hotels. He was integral to the launch of Jet Blue Airways. After the agency world he spent three years as Global Creative Director/ Communications with sportswear company FILA working on everything from packaging, spatial graphics, global print campaigns and brand positioning.

Commenting on his move, Mr. Mamus said “The days of striated communications for brands - both new and old – is over. Agencies need to be fluent in all media types, responsive and adaptive. We are always raising our own bar for excellence. Our clients benefit from our massive experience and global network of some of the world’s best talent.”

Some current MAMUS clients include Boston-based Allied Minds Federal Innovations (AMFI) and OptioLabs, a next-generation encryption company as well as South Tampa-based JAPONICA. California-based companies YoungJets, Mission Wealth and Riley, Australian-based cosmetic company Nude by Nature and New York based Lucid Candle Works and Noble Biomaterials.
