“Dain looks great in flannel—and for a Minnesota agency, we know this matters. Hiring Dain ties directly to a shift we are making at Morsekode to focus on specific aspects of our work,” Morsekode CEO Mark Morse said in a statement. “For a young creative director, Dain has a unique maturity to his work; fresh yet brand appropriate. This perspective is exactly what we need as a digital-centric brand creative agency—to energize both our creative DNA and the business of our growth-oriented clients.”
Morse added that the agency’s Minneapolis headquarters is in “full-on expansion” mode in the wake of “two years of double digit billings increases.”
