WHAT WE DO

We believe hard-to ignore communication sells products more effectively than boring-ass, bland ad-blather. We also believe that a brand is the sum of its parts, and all of the parts should work together.

We are a fully integrated strategy, design, advertising and production company with a unique business structure that has been called “the model of the future”.

Call or write. We’d love to tell you more about it.

D.J. founded Hub Strategy & Communication in the summer of 2002 with the aim of helping clients achieve a much-talked-about, but hard-to-reach goal - true integrated marketing. At Hub, D.J. oversees the brand and creative development efforts for all clients as well as directing much of the television work. Clients served include Google, Nike, the Oakland A's, Levi's, Microsoft, Sony Playstation, Slingbox, MacGregor Golf, Tesla Motors, Sega of America, Konami, and Lombardi Sports. Since 2002, Hub has won hundreds of creative awards across the full range of marketing channels including website design, television, rich media, radio, package design, outdoor and web viral.

D.J. was an adjunct professor of integrated marketing and advertising at both graduate and undergraduate levels at the University of San Francisco for 3 years. He has been published in Advertising Age, has served on the Board of Directors of the Young Entrepreneurs Organization (YEO) and has directed more than 50 television spots, animated videos and short documentaries.

Previously, D.J. co-founded Seidel O'Neil & Partners Advertising in 1995, where he worked for seven years as Co-President. There, he developed and managed work for clients including 24 Hour Fitness, Mindspring, Earthlink, Listen.com, Storehouse Furniture, and Lombardi Sports.

D.J. has a B.A. in Communication from the University of Colorado at Boulder. He is forty-five years old, married and the father of two young girls. His interests include surfing, fly-fishing, sailing, scuba diving, out-of-the-way travel, and painting.

Peter joined Hub in 2006 as Design Director bringing with him well-acclaimed talent along with an ability to get the best work from those he leads. Peter is charged with directing every piece of visual communication that Hub produces.

Prior to joining Hub, Peter was at Carol H. Williams creating work for the booming, urban, 18-25 year old consumer. His re-branding effort (including logo design, print, TV, and interactive) for Pop Secret popcorn was featured in U.S. Ad Review and is still being implemented, through General Mills, on packaging, in movie theaters and in supermarkets. In addition, his work for Coors Light, General Motors and Allstate received many accolades.

Peter is a pathetic slave to fashion and his love of design has manifested itself in the fashion world. He has designed everything from t-shirts to wedding dresses to jewelry.

Peter graduated from Syracuse University in 1994 with a degree in Advertising Design. Immediately upon leaving Syracuse he moved to San Francisco and has spent his entire career in the Bay Area doing both traditional advertising and graphic design. He has worked at shops as big as Arnold Worldwide, where he was an Associate Creative Director, to tiny, one-person design studios. He has worked on everything from beer to bondage to biotech.

When Peter is not working he is rearranging the piles of art books, stacks of vinyl and the vintage modern furniture that fill his San Francisco apartment.

Jason began his relationship with Hub in early 2007. His design sensibility and thinking were welcomed with open arms. They have been madly in love ever since. Before arriving at Hub, Jason was a designer at Nickelodeon in New York. After almost six years at Nick, Jason felt the pull of the west coast and dropped it all to move to San Francisco to pursue his dreams of designing in the cold and foggy sunshine. When not at Hub, Jason enjoys eating out and purchasing expensive design books and vintage modern furniture. Education-wise, Jason earned a degree in marketing/advertising from the University of Pittsburgh followed by design studies at both Parsons School of Design and the School of Visual Arts.

Angelina is an Account Director & Agency Producer at Hub, and has been part of the team since 2007. Her clients include: Slingbox, Sony Playstation, Shopstyle, Sega of America, Nox Audio, Google, Chevys Fresh Mex, The Oakland A's, and LinkedIn.

Prior to joining Hub, she worked as a freelance producer in Los Angeles, primarily on automotive commercials and print shoots for Toyota, Honda, and Mitsubishi. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa from U.C. Berkeley with a BA in Film Studies and a minor in Creative Writing. While there, she also studied and taught with June Jordan's Poetry for the People program. She loves spicy foods, crossword puzzles, and - ever since the Swine Flu scare - hand sanitizer.

Chris came to Hub in May 2012 to help with the Blue Shield of California campaign. Prior to Hub, hes been account-guying for many years at agencies in New York, Boston, and San Francisco.

Chris began his marketing career at the Seagram Company working on Captain Morgan and Crown Royal, but wanted to get closer to the creative, so switched to the agency side on Absolut Vodka.

His history included working at TBWA/Chiat/Days legendary virtual office in New York (there was a fire pole between floors—really), followed by Grey, Arnold, and DraftFCB. He's worked on a diverse range of brands from heavy-duty financial services stuff like Fidelity Investments, Progressive Insurance, and New York Life Insurance, to breezy good-time brands like Wonderbra, Hasbro, Twix, and Milky Way. One of his personal favorites was directing global advertising for Jack Daniels, taking that icon into new markets around the world and spreading the gospel of Tennessee Whiskey (can I get a hallelujah?!).

Now that he's in SF, he's digging the outdoors - hiking, skiing, trying to surf - but also still indulges in the more refined entertainments from his east coast heritage, like good literature, film, and food.

Elaine joined the Hub team as an Account Director in October of 2014. Before her time at Hub, she worked at Organic San Francisco and managed the Quaker and the Nike direct-to-consumer businesses.

She is a Boston-native and has spent time at various agencies in Beantown including Carat, Mullen and Studiocom. Given her almost five year stint working on the Dunkin' Donuts business, we consider her a resident QSR and coffee expert. She brings a wealth of digital expertise to Hub as well. Her client list also includes Staples, Reebok, Coke Zero, Wachovia Bank, Liberty Medical, and now Western Union, Nimble Storage and National Aquarium.

Elaine spends her free time taking photos of her two adorable girls, hiking with her pooch, Marley, cooking, and trying to catch a movie now and again.

Cassie joined the Hub crew as Management Supervisor in January of 2014. Prior to Hub Cassie spent several years at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners and Pereira & O'Dell working on major brands like Comcast, Sprint, Dickies & Skype.

From brand campaigns, re-brands, B2B, product and competitive advertising—Cassie has dug her teeth into just about every sort of marketing challenge there is (and kicked it's ass, might we add). She brings a ton of fully integrated experience to the team and has a knack for thinking outside the box of traditional advertising and championing innovative ideas.

When not teaching Brand Strategy & Account Planning at Miami Ad School, you can find Cassie sipping on some tasty vino, doing "outdoorsy" stuff, volunteering at the SF SPCA or obsessing over her own little pooch, Charlie. Who BTW, has his own Instagram account with thousands of followers.

When not teaching Brand Strategy & Account Planning at Miami Ad School, you can find Cassie sipping on some tasty vino, doing "outdoorsy" stuff, volunteering at the SF SPCA or obsessing over her own little pooch, Charlie. Who BTW, has his own Instagram account with thousands of followers.

Peter joined Hub in 2006 as Design Director bringing with him well-acclaimed talent along with an ability to get the best work from those he leads. Peter is charged with directing every piece of visual communication that Hub produces.

Prior to joining Hub, Peter was at Carol H. Williams creating work for the booming, urban, 18-25 year old consumer. His re-branding effort (including logo design, print, TV, and interactive) for Pop Secret popcorn was featured in U.S. Ad Review and is still being implemented, through General Mills, on packaging, in movie theaters and in supermarkets. In addition, his work for Coors Light, General Motors and Allstate received many accolades.

Peter is a pathetic slave to fashion and his love of design has manifested itself in the fashion world. He has designed everything from t-shirts to wedding dresses to jewelry.

Peter graduated from Syracuse University in 1994 with a degree in Advertising Design. Immediately upon leaving Syracuse he moved to San Francisco and has spent his entire career in the Bay Area doing both traditional advertising and graphic design. He has worked at shops as big as Arnold Worldwide, where he was an Associate Creative Director, to tiny, one-person design studios. He has worked on everything from beer to bondage to biotech.

When Peter is not working he is rearranging the piles of art books, stacks of vinyl and the vintage modern furniture that fill his San Francisco apartment.

Jason began his relationship with Hub in early 2007. His design sensibility and thinking were welcomed with open arms. They have been madly in love ever since. Before arriving at Hub, Jason was a designer at Nickelodeon in New York. After almost six years at Nick, Jason felt the pull of the west coast and dropped it all to move to San Francisco to pursue his dreams of designing in the cold and foggy sunshine. When not at Hub, Jason enjoys eating out and purchasing expensive design books and vintage modern furniture. Education-wise, Jason earned a degree in marketing/advertising from the University of Pittsburgh followed by design studies at both Parsons School of Design and the School of Visual Arts.

Chris came to Hub in May 2012 to help with the Blue Shield of California campaign. Prior to Hub, hes been account-guying for many years at agencies in New York, Boston, and San Francisco.

Chris began his marketing career at the Seagram Company working on Captain Morgan and Crown Royal, but wanted to get closer to the creative, so switched to the agency side on Absolut Vodka.

His history included working at TBWA/Chiat/Days legendary virtual office in New York (there was a fire pole between floors—really), followed by Grey, Arnold, and DraftFCB. He's worked on a diverse range of brands from heavy-duty financial services stuff like Fidelity Investments, Progressive Insurance, and New York Life Insurance, to breezy good-time brands like Wonderbra, Hasbro, Twix, and Milky Way. One of his personal favorites was directing global advertising for Jack Daniels, taking that icon into new markets around the world and spreading the gospel of Tennessee Whiskey (can I get a hallelujah?!).

Now that he's in SF, he's digging the outdoors - hiking, skiing, trying to surf - but also still indulges in the more refined entertainments from his east coast heritage, like good literature, film, and food.
