Stephen Neale, Senior Vice President, Executive Creative Director, AbelsonTaylor (online judge, 2014; live judge 2012)
When it comes to developing a great creative campaign, Stephen Neale’s philosophy is simple – make a human connection. Neale is the Executive Creative Director (ECD) for the largest, independent healthcare advertising agency in the world.
He joined AbelsonTaylor in 1988 as a young designer seeking to make a difference in healthcare advertising. Five years later, he did just that with the launch of the Hytrin Balloon Ad in 1993. The ad campaign changed the face of medical advertising, lifting creativity out of its sameness and connecting with physicians. Recently inducted into the Medical Advertising Hall of Fame (January 2015), the Hytrin Balloon Ad is one of the most memorable in the industry.
