Biography

For 23 years, Ted Royer watched a lot of TV, and decided he could do much, much better than what he saw there. Since graduating from Atlanta’s Portfolio Center, Ted’s 11-year advertising career has taken him around the world, most notably to Singapore (where his work helped Saatchi & Saatchi, Singapore become International Agency of the Year), Argentina (where he helped Ogilvy win more awards than it ever had in South America), and Australia. In his first year in the business, Ted won more One Show Pencils than any other rookie creative, and since then he has won over 50 major awards in the industry, including Pencils, Cannes Lions and Clios for clients such as HP, Unilever, Nike, and ESPN.

Ted has been on the worldwide creative boards of both Ogilvy & Mather and Publicis Groupe as Executive Creative Director and regional Creative Director. He was the youngest member in the history of Ogilvy’s council. Ted’s work has been featured in numerous American TV shows and his ESPN SportsCenter campaign is now a Harvard University case study.
