Doug Morris started out studying illustration at Art Center College of Design, but quickly made his way into the advertising business when he was hired as a storyboard illustrator at Young & Rubicam in Los Angeles.
While working for a number of high level art and creative directors (many from big New York shops) the young artist learned the art of creating, presenting and producing national quality TV spots. That wealth of experience earned him a better job at Grey Worldwide, a larger and more financially successful agency where the bulk of the ad billings were in television.
After several years creating successful TV campaigns, Grey asked Doug to co-head a creative group. However Doug eventually grew disenchanted with the urban lifestyle and moved his family to a small hobby farm 25 miles east of Fresno, CA where they now live and keep horses.
For over 10 years Doug served as the creative director of two of Central California's leading advertising agencies before returning to his roots and becoming a full-time storyboard artist and television producer.
Beyond Doug's ability as an agency creative type, he was and still is an artist. His drawing and rendering skills are superb and in a job where most art directors make stick figures or use other people's photography to communicate ideas, Doug's talent always shines through.
There are few people who know as much about every aspect of advertising creation and production as Doug Morris. He not only can come up with great ideas, he knows how to get those ideas sold and produced.
Doug is a problem solver who digs deep until the best possible solution is found, whether it's a concept, a supplier you have to have, a budget that needs to be met against the odds, or it's a deadline that seems impossible and can only be met by pulling any and all resources out of the hat.
