MEET OUR JUDGE:
Rob Petrie, Creative Director/ Art Director
“To exchange ideas with the hope of influencing millions of people is an awesome feeling and just plain fun.”
A SoCal boy through and through, Rob has been basking in the warmth of his marketing success for 20 years. Claiming awards in every major show and publication Rob has made it a personal mission to bring visually differentiating ideas and unique brand design to the forefront of all his clients communications. Before coming to MeringCarson, Rob spent time at DiZinno Thompson, Young and Rubicam and NYCA, where his eye for detail and awe-inspiring aesthetic have lent themselves to the success of clients like Lincoln/Mercury, Jaguar, Sony, Mattel, Visit California, San Diego Tourism Authority and the NFL.
Rob holds a BFA in Design from California State University, Fullerton and when he isn’t watching The Godfather or Shawshank Redemption over and over again, he is hanging with his Wife and two kids at the beach.
