Carl Koestner

Creative Director

Prior to joining Davis Advertising in September of 2023 as Co-Creative Director, Carl spent 16 years on Michigan Avenue in Chicago working on iconic brands including McDonald’s, Toyota, Walmart, Comcast, and P&G.

A well-rounded creative, Carl is equally at home writing as he is art directing. In his career, he has been blessed to have his work appear during the Super Bowl, the Grammys, the Olympics, and the Oscars. He even made it into the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition. (Not him. His ad.)

When he’s not losing sleep searching for that elusive big idea or trying to find the perfect font, you can find him at home in Louisville, Kentucky watching classic TV sitcoms, obsessing over his beloved St. Louis Cardinals and salivating at the nearest Apple store.
