As TWIST moves closer to their 21st anniversary, the Fearless Thinkers punch out of the pandemic as Co-Founders Connie and Mike Ozan hire an all-star creative director. And we couldn’t be more thrilled for our team, for our clients and our work moving forward. A creative hybrid of concept and design, Greg Oznowich is the perfect match for TWIST and what it represents – bringing two decades worth of experience to our growing team as we roar into the 20’s.
In his 20+ year portfolio, Greg has worked for Fortune 500 companies, esteemed institutions, and renowned nonprofits. He’s collaborated with dozens of industry leaders on a multitude of print and digital communication projects including annual reports, corporate identity, capital campaigns, college recruitment, marketing programs, advertising campaigns, and websites for Bechtel, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland Zoological Society, Columbia University, Eaton, International Spy Museum, Lubrizol, PepsiCo, Planned Parenthood, Perkins School for the Blind, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, University Hospitals, and Vassar College.
His clean-cut and timeless work has appeared in several graphic art publications including Communication Arts, Print, Studio, Applied Arts, Graphic Design: USA and Graphis magazines, and he’s received awards from the American Center for Design, the American Institute of Graphic Arts, and the Cleveland Advertising Federation. And to add on top of that, his work is also a part of the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution’s Cooper-Hewitt Museum and the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg.
Greg’s role as Creative Director will consist of being involved on projects at every stage of their lifecycle: from development of creative concepts with the project team and developing original campaigns to participating in client presentations. Working with Mike and Connie on the creative vision of the agency and concepting for clients, his experience in both concepts and design will be a bridge to TWIST’s 20+ year portfolio of connecting advertising to art. While managing and motivating the creative team of designers and copywriters, Greg will oversee creative projects, including product and lifestyle photo shoots and video shoots, advertising campaigns, print production and website UI/UX.
Greg has also served on the board of the Cleveland Chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA); and has lectured for the AIGA, the American Society of Media Photographers, Bowling Green State University, Cuyahoga Community College, Hawken School, Kent State University, Lakeland Community College, and Picker International. And most recently, he’s served as a judge for the 2019 Applied Arts Magazine International Design Competition and was interviewed for the 2020 Applied Arts Photography Award Annual.
