Dustin Ballard: Creative Group Head/Writer
Dustin is a seventh-generation Texan. While his ancestors rarely strayed more than a day’s wagon ride from Pilot Point, Texas, Dustin has proved more adventurous. But whether he was in the deserts of Egypt, the lava fields of Iceland, or on a three-year advertising stint in Miami at Crispin Porter + Bogusky, the pull of Texas always brought him back.
Dustin has been at TRG since 2006, working for clients such as Chick-fil-A, Fiat, The Salvation Army, and Dr Pepper. He’s been honored multiple times by The One Show, the Clio Awards, and Cannes, and early in his career was named by Adweek as one of the “Best Creatives You’ve Never Heard Of.”
Dustin also plays the fiddle in a western swing band. You may catch him and wife Janet two-stepping at a local dance hall, though she’ll quickly point out that his fiddling is better than his dancing.
