Mark starts every morning off with a run and, as a man on a mission, doesn’t stop moving until his head hits the pillow at night. He founded Think Creative in 2000 because he suspected that an agency, if it tried hard enough, could do it all: produce extraordinary work for great clients and be a place people love working every day. All he had to do was start it himself. Now, as the fearless leader of Think Creative, he firmly believes that our agency has the power to help people, organizations, and our community be the best it can be. And he’ll do whatever needs to be done to get there, especially when it involves inspiring the team to work hard, have fun and think big. No, bigger. Even bigger than that. Okay, that’ll do. For now.
If Daenerys Targaryen is the Mother of Dragons, Diane Levine is the mother of stories. As the leader of story and message development, she loves the challenge of understanding a brand and bringing their compelling truth to light. To do that, she spends her days listening, researching, brainstorming, collaborating, strategizing, writing and staring out the window (which she swears is part of her creative process). Diane has developed award-winning campaigns for a wide range of clients and industries, from organic grocery stores, liberal arts colleges and community fitness centers to nonprofit organizations, financial service firms and five-star resorts. She firmly believes that every brand has a great story to tell, whether that story is about aromatherapy or smart investment strategy. Let’s just say if there was an Iron Throne for storytelling…she’d be sitting on it.
Client champion. Ironman. Devoted Gator. Mother of two. The agency’s go-to for just about everything. It’s not a question of what Kim can do, it’s a question if there’s anything Kim can’t do. From campaign kick-off through champagne celebration, Kim serves as Think’s primary point-of-contact, problem solver and master planner. Client wants to reach millennial foodies shopping for organic groceries in Tulsa, Oklahoma? Kim will figure out how. Designers not sure what “make it pop more” means this time around? Kim will translate. After 11 years at Think Creative and more than 20 years in the industry, Kim has mastered the art of keeping both clients and Thinkers happy. From strategizing last-minute sales campaigns to creating half-marathon training plans, everyone relies on her for just about everything. And the best part? She’s more than happy to help.
Designer. Photographer. Office plant mom. Recycling fairy. Miranda wears an abundance of hats at Think, and not just on Unexpected Accessory and Adventure Lunch Day. After taking her first design class at the ripe age of 11, Miranda landed her first freelance design contract at just 16 years old. We’d say her skills are full-grown now, but somehow, she just keeps getting better at creating a brand’s distinct visual identity and expressing it across any platform, from the essential (website, ads, signage, print materials) to the exceptional (talking taco trucks, artificial turf, rainbow sprinkles). Miranda’s an avid creator off the clock as well, and counts knitting, crocheting and hand-lettering among her hobbies, along with yoga and, because no one’s productive all the time, mindlessly scrolling on IG and consuming way more than a healthy amount of TV/movies.
With great design comes great responsibility.” That’s how the Spiderman quote goes, right? That’s probably how Aleitha remembers it, and what she lacks in Marvel superhero knowledge, she more than makes up for in design and branding savvy. In Aleitha’s meticulous hands, design is about creating not just an object, but an experience. She always starts by outlining the design from start to finish — a habit she held on to from her first career path: architecture. Though she’s no longer designing in brick and mortar, she brings that same precision and attention to detail to her work in print, interactive and environmental media, resulting in experiences that are beautiful and memorable. After closing the MacBook, Aleitha opens the songbook as a performer in the Bach Festival Choir, and the textbook as a professor for the next generation of talented designers.
Jane of many trades, answerer of many questions and alleviator of all client concerns, Alex takes on every challenge with unwavering enthusiasm and all-in execution. She first joined the Think team as an intern, and by the time she donned her graduation cap, we realized that she was so darn good at everything we threw at her, from writing copy to managing projects to pitching media, that we just had to keep her. Now, as our full-time, card-carrying Account Coordinator, she runs point between clients and our creative team to make sure our work delivers on what we promised and our clients keep coming back for more. When not at work you can find her nose deep in a new book, brushing up on her knowledge of the Myers-Briggs personality test (because why not?) or spending time with her friends.
Born and raised in Brazil before arriving at the University of Central Florida, Fernando is Think’s international man of mystery and supplier of addictive Brazilian candy. He approaches each video project with a wide-open perspective and razor-sharp eye that sees how every single frame shapes the story. It’s a skill that he honed on the video team for UCF Athletics, where milliseconds matter, cameras come with miles of cable to carry across the field, and spectacular plays must be shot, edited and broadcast within minutes. Fernando knows what it’s like to work under pressure, and boy does he deliver, from conceptualizing to shooting, from editing to final cut — though finding the right music just might break him one of these days.
A digital native hailing from Orlando, Chris is passionate about all things Internet. It all started as a side hobby making GeoCity webpages for his favorite bands as a kid, then progressed to creating sites for friends out of his college dorm. Today, Chris designs digital experiences that help brands put their best foot forward. After studying Digital Media at the University of Central Florida, Chris worked for an interactive storytelling agency where he developed varied applications for Fortune 50 companies. He made a name for himself in Central Florida, working on design and development for an array of the area’s digital agencies. We’re proud to be his favorite. In addition to assuring an awesome web presence for Think clients, Chris serves as our team’s de facto IT dude, patiently resolving critical tech issues such as why the heck the wi-fi ain’t working right.
Co-founder of Intern Island, Kelsey knew after her first week as a social media intern that being able to work at Think someday would be a dream come true. Nowadays, you’ll find her living the dream by creating content and social strategies for our clients, as well as building the occasional lettuce wall for influencer events. A prior intern for State Representative Anna Eskamani and communications chair of the UCF College Democrats, Kelsey is combining her love for politics and communications by working towards her master’s in Public Interest Communication at the University of Florida as she learns how to tell stories that can change our world. A first generation Peruvian-American, Kelsey grew up on novellas and watching her grandma cook and loves reading, painting, watching Gilmore Girls reruns with her mom and cuddling her two cats. Outside the office, you’ll find her exploring all the newest spots in Orlando, especially the plant shops.
