Coming from TBWA\Chiat\Day, where he was Design Director, Hiers will serve as a leader in experiential, digital, and content production with his global brand experience crafting work for McDonald’s, Disney, Robinhood, Adidas, and Google. Previously, he held creative roles with Left Field Labs, North Kingdom Design & Communications, and HAUS Los Angeles. Hiers attended Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD).

“I hope to help foster an environment around me that promotes the creation of better and bigger work. I’m already learning a lot from Thinkingbox CCO and CEO about the vision and direction of the company, and I hope to spread those ideals while adding a bit of my spice,” said Hiers.

“Tim’s a proven talent in copywriting and concept work, and the fact that he started as an Art Director means he has a great vision for the big picture. His digital work is thought-provoking; and, more importantly, culturally relevant. It doesn’t hurt that his ideas consistently make me laugh, think deeply, and occasionally make me want to punch him in the face,” said Michael Kern, Chief Creative Officer, Thinkingbox. “Scott is a proven creative director with a pedigree whose passion is infectious. His talent will have a profound impact on creative thinking and design execution for both brand and digital. I am always on the lookout for designers who understand craft, and his detail-oriented focus is truly inspiring. The team could not be more excited,” he continued.
