PORTFOLIO

Creative Director | Think Above. Go Beyond.

Carolyn Gargano

Hello, and thanks for clicking by.
You'll find I'm particularly drawn to projects that help us feel better. Welcoming a smile,
a personal connection,

and at times providing the clarity we count on to make essential choices.

I'm all about thinking beyond. How can we make this the best where it is now? Where can we take this further?
Ad campaigns, experiences, product ideation, creative platforms, and purpose driven creative is my universe.
