Tug McTighe
VP - Executive Creative Director


When I am away from my basement World Headquarters in Kansas City, MO, you will find me spending time with my family, coaching competitive youth soccer, and consuming as much pop culture (read: books, movies, TV, music) as I possibly can. 



Throughout my 30-year advertising career I have amassed a portfolio that features projects for brands like AMC Theatres, Sprint, Elanco, Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Nudges Dog Treats, Boulevard Brewing Company, Salvation Army, Adobe and more.

My work has been featured in national shows such as the CA Ad Annual, AAF National Addys and the Clios. I have also won more than 50 local Addys, including several “Best Ofs.” I was named the Kansas City Ad Club Creative Professional of the Year for 2019.



I love to laugh and adore collaborating with others. Advertising is truly a team sport, and I love creating great work with great people. My father’s motto was “If it ain’t fun, don’t do it.” I try to heed that advice every day.
