Summer Spotlight: Catching Up With Our Creative & Media Directors

Team D&A has been hard at work this summer, while also making memories that will last a lifetime. Check out our creative and media directors’ recent hot projects and summer fun!

Casey Boccia, Creative Director

Hot Project: Casey joined forces with Chase Brexton Health Care, the Baltimore City Health Department, and 16West Studios to create three videos about the U=U—Undetectable = Untransmittable public health initiative in Maryland. The short videos showcased how individuals who are living with HIV and following their treatment plans can maintain undetectable viral loads, meaning they cannot transmit HIV to their partners. The goal: educate Marylanders on how they can stop the spread of HIV and end the stigma around the disease. To achieve this, Casey worked with HIV specialists, healthcare workers, and members of the HIV activist community to create a dialogue and platform that brings positivity, hope, and straight talk to the public. 

Creating Sunshine: Casey and her husband have been finding creative ways to keep their two boys entertained (and exhausted!) this summer. Adventures have included camping in West Virginia, hiking to a ghost town in Maryland, Nerf wars at the park, biking around Baltimore City, and adding an inflatable pool to their roof deck!

Susan Casey, Media Director

Hot Project: Our media director, Susan, has had a jam-packed summer working with Presbyterian Senior Living! The hot project started off strong with a large corporate campaign thanking essential staff at their various communities, coupled with positive messaging ads to keep spirits strong during a challenging time. Susan placed over 70 ads in 17 regions targeting the organization’s different senior living communities. In addition to her work with their larger summer campaign, Susan has managed all other placements for Presbyterian Senior Living, including digital and print advertisements to build overall awareness, promote their personal care and assisted living services, recruit staff, and promote events. 

Creating Sunshine: When she’s not placing ads or planning media strategies, she enjoys spending time with her family, reading, and trying new recipes centered around crops in her husband’s garden. One of Susan’s favorite memories from this summer is taking a trip to Lewes, DE and going on a sunset cruise to dolphin watch!

D&A Summer Successes: From Branding Expertise to Design Skills

Summer is here to stay, and as the heat index rises, so do the hot jobs at Devaney & Associates. So, crank up that AC, because Team D&A is back with a few more exciting summer projects and sunshine-filled fun!

Renee Landis, Account Executive

Hot Project: Telecommunications Access of Maryland (TAM) is a state agency dedicated to helping Marylanders who have difficulty using a standard telephone. This summer, Renee led TAM through a significant rebranding as the organization moved from the Maryland Department of Information Technology to the Department of Disabilities. Under her guidance, the client unveiled a new branding hierarchy and new logos for their parent brand and their two flagship programs, Maryland Relay and the Maryland Accessible Telecommunications (MAT) program. She is now working with Maryland Relay’s team to roll out the new brand across countless communications materials, from newsletters to applications.

Creating Sunshine: Renee’s summer has been full of amazing moments. Some of her highlights include kayaking with friends and family, spending the week at the beach, and most importantly, getting engaged to her amazing fiancé! 

Jordan Levush, Graphic Designer

Hot Project: Jordan has flexed her creative capabilities all summer long with her design work for BoMark Technology Group—a trusted leader in contracting and installation services for information technology systems! Each month, Jordan delivers with email blasts that are not only visually engaging and fun, but consistent with the BoMark branding. These attention-grabbing monthly updates—along with valuable metrics and tracking, including a 17% unique opens rate average, 4% unique clicks average, and a 23% click to open rate average— help BoMark Technology Group connect with current and past customers, while building meaningful relationships with prospects and leads.

Creating Sunshine: When she’s not busy designing eye-catching graphics, Jordan loves to spend her free time playing (or swimming!) with her dog and tending to her house plants. This summer, she added several new additions to her growing collection—brightening up her work-from-home space and making her coworkers green with envy!

Red Hot Jobs: Keeping Up with Our Art Director and Account Manager

This summer is turning out to be a scorcher, and things are certainly heating up at Devaney & Associates. From website launches to virtual event marketing and guidance, Team  D&A has been busy, busy, busy!

Kolleen KilDuff, Senior Art Director

Hot Project: After reinventing their brand with Team D&A this spring, corporate housing leader Interim Homes wanted a new website to match—one that would showcase their nationwide expansion and their new brand. Kolleen created a stunning site that seamlessly captured Interim Homes’ unique features, such as the Triple 1 Guest ExperienceTMShe was able to meet the client’s needs—and more—incorporating a modernized search function, integrating Google Maps, and making the site easier to navigate for the user and the client!

Creating Sunshine: Kolleen has been keeping it creative all summer long! Some of her highlights include raising butterflies, creating a pirate garden cove to protect her garden from birds, and painting a vibrant mural outside her house.

Lisa D’Orsaneo, Account Manager

Hot Project: At the start of the summer, Lisa had the opportunity to work with Edenwald Senior Living to reinvent their resident panel, a semi-annual event designed to inform prospective residents about the Edenwald lifestyle. From the start, Lisa consulted with the client on how to best engage with their prospects in the era of social distancing and stay-at-home orders—resulting in a new online format. She guided them on best practices for using Zoom, suggested a giveaway as an incentive for attendees, provided tech support, and executed a marketing plan that drove high-value prospects to the virtual event.

Creating Sunshine: Lisa has been making waves this summer at D&A…and recently, she became a certified nutrition coach! She credits her success to long nights of training and a little help from her favorite study buddy and #1 supporter—her cat!

Meghan Militello, Copywriter

Hot Project: In the midst of the pandemic, Carroll Hospital reached out to Devaney & Associates to help them with a unique project—to create a lobby wall design that would bring some happiness and light back into the hospital. Meghan helped create several interactive, one-of-a-kind concepts that illustrate how important community is at Carroll Hospital. Once the concept was selected, she worked diligently, with other members of the creative team, to breathe life into the creation! The finished concept—We Make Our Community Better Together—encourages everyone to literally write and color on the wall as a way to share their story and help make something beautiful as a community!

Creating Sunshine: Meghan is having fun this summer by taking walks with her dog Nova and spending time on her rooftop. This past week she visited Huron, Ohio and stayed on Lake Erie!
