Shane Altman: Creative Group Head/Art Director
Shane got into advertising because he wanted a career with a huge salary, regular hours, and a low-pressure working environment. Shane was 15 at the time. So that explains that.
From before he had his driver’s license and into his college years, Shane worked for a small design shop – before switching to freelance at McCann Erickson. After graduating, Shane continued to freelance while attending Portfolio Center. He joined The Richards Group in 1994 and has since crafted everything from FSIs to Super Bowl spots for Bridgestone, Cole Haan, Firestone, Go RVing, The Home Depot, Hyundai, 7-Eleven, Sub-Zero, and Wawa.
Shane’s work has received all sorts of professional recognition – though nothing yet that tops his first award, earned at the age of 9. His work for Sugar Corn Pops won him a ten-speed bike in Kellogg’s “Stick Up for Breakfast” contest.
