It’s Profit, not “Prophet.”

Account Leadership @ MONO

Profit Idowu

9+ Years of Agency and Leadership Experience

Some say, “…if it don’t make dollars, it don’t make sense.” In this world of multimillion-dollar ad campaigns, it’s account people like myself who help shape the form of a deliverable and guide it out of the creative process. Thinking strategically with the big picture in mind while not getting distracted by how beautiful a still frame is or could be.

I practice my craft by leading clients and agency teams through the tango of finding fresh brand-building ideas by harnessing the power of creativity.

Brands I’ve Worked On

Automotive, CPG, Luxury Sprits, QSR, E-Retail and more.

Skillsets

Brand Campaigns

The motto is “ABS” – Always Be Selling. In addition to making work that converts, I also take into consideration above-the-line and below-the-line brand actions that lean towards the emotional or rational sides of the brain.

Brand Development

I’m a fan of building a brand over time and sales over night. Whenever the make us famous brief comes in, the first action after that should be to interrogate the premise. The moonshot to notoriety can also lead to infamy—pick your own adventure.

Strategy

A supporter and developer of utilizing smart approaches to deal with business challenges. Using frameworks and blueprints as a guiding light to the nuanced problem all marketers have—finding a way to get the attention of potential buyers.

Rich Media Execution

As an aspiring subject matter expert, I have a proven track record of owning creative initiatives and getting things out the door.

I make deposits in the accounts that matter.
