INK—MGMT ignites a revolution for Black creatives in advertising
In the gleaming towers of Madison Avenue, a revolution of representing black creatives in advertising is taking shape. INK—MGMT, the first full-service talent management agency dedicated to championing Black creatives in the advertising industry, has seen the number of candidates in its database triple since its launch last month, according to a spokesperson. The agency, created by a triumvirate of award-winning Black creatives, will focus on the innovative staffing of Black talent, with the goal of reshaping the industry’s landscape.
This pioneering agency was founded by Jason Pierce, a Detroit native and highly acclaimed creative director; Ant Tull, a writer with an art background known for his culturally resonant ideas; and Sebastian Walker, a multidisciplinary artist from Florida with an eye for the vanguard of design, fashion, and photography. All three have made their mark with some of the world’s top agencies and brands, including Droga5, VML, CP+B, MullenLowe U.S., and Grey NY.
