Nichole Geddes
CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Hi, there. I'm Nichole.

About

I’m a Creative Director who resides in San Francisco, California. I managed to get here by way of Wisconsin -> Georgia -> Colorado -> Washington.

Currently at 215 McCann, I lead creative teams to develop breakthrough work on projects for Xbox brand and game titles – most recently launching Xbox’s newest generation of consoles with the Power Your Dreams campaign. Before joining 215, I was a Creative Director at Heat, where I developed campaigns for EA, Hotwire, Ubisoft, Bank of the West, Dolby and The San Francisco Aids Foundation. Over the last 13 years my work has been recognized at Cannes, ANDYs, the Effies, National Addys, Clios, Shorty and Webby Awards.

99.9% of the time people forget the “h” in my name. I am an upper-intermediate philatelist. I am a wolf mother and most recently, a human baby mother. I love a good notebook doodle and often prefer them over the real notes that typically share the same page.
