Adrienne M. Anbinder
Adrienne grew up in an artistic family in Brooklyn, New York. After marrying her childhood sweetheart, Adrienne studied at the Art Students League and The School of Visual Arts in New York. She designed and wrote her own line of greeting cards, called "Magical Madrigals."

Adrienne and Barry are the owners of Creative Consultants, Inc, an
Atlanta ad agency. She writes and art-directs radio, print, numerous TV commercials, and has art-directed more than 100 photo shoots. Her print ads have appeared in dozens of magazines. Adrienne has been named one of "Atlanta's Top 100 Women In Business."

As a former rape crisis center volunteer, Adrienne has always championed for the rights of women. The Anbinders write and direct videos to help raise money for organizations such as The DeKalb Rape Crises Center, The Women's Resource Center, and Students Without Mothers – where Adrienne is a founding board member. In addition, the Anbinders own a photography studio, January Moon Photography, where Adrienne is the stylist, and art-director, and Barry is the photographer. In this large cost-effective studio, many of their client videos and commercials have been filmed.

Most recently, Adrienne's children's book, Clarence Blooms in Winter, was recently published. To complement her book, we created a web site which features original music, reviews, lesson plans and downloadable coloring pages, plus on-line purchase options for teachers and parents.

Barry Anbinder
Barry Anbinder has spent over twenty years in the ad biz. He started as Junior Copywriter at McCaffrey & McCall Advertising in New York and became Associate Creative Director within two years. After directing the creative work at ad agencies in Cincinnati and Atlanta, he and his wife (and best friend) Adrienne opened Creative Consultants, Inc. in their Peachtree Corners, Georgia home in 1990.

Barry earned an M.F.A. in Directing, from the School of Performing Arts at Brooklyn College in New York in 1972. He is also a professional photographer, owner of January Moon Photography, and shoots much of the photography for his clients - specializing in business and family portraits, as well as photography for ad campaigns. In addition, he is the resident photographer for Georgia Ensemble Theatre.

His directing degree and his discerning photographer's eye have given him a unique advantage in the industry. He directs all of CCI's radio spots, as well as many TV spots, giving even low-budget ads believability and visual impact. Barry has directed commercials starring Alfré Woodard, William Hurt, Pat Hingle, Amanda Plummer, and Gilbert Godfrey, among others.

Polly Hathorn
Polly has been producing for CCI for over 15 years. Time after time, she has made our clients happy by saving them lots of money, without sacrificing quality. She is as sweet as she is honest. And her Southern charm often complements our Northern sensibilities.

Polly has nearly 20 years experience in Atlanta's Advertising Industry. She is loved throughout the ad community almost as mush as she is loved by all of us at CCI.

Wayne Johnson
Wayne has been writing copy for CCI for the past 12 years. Wayne is well liked in the Atlanta advertising community. When he's not dazzling us with his enthusiasm, he's dazzling the folks over at Turner Broadcasting.

Wayne has been known to write copy well in the wee hours, just to get a campaign completed. He actually was a former creative director at an ad agency in Anchorage, Alaska, where he swears he could see whales from the conference room window. Clients love Wayne's easy-going nature almost as much as his ideas. And so do we! All of us at CCI are delighted that Wayne has been chosen to be part of our team.

Thomas Wood
Tom is a multi-faceted graphic designer who has worked with CCI for over 10 years. His skill set includes extensive experience creating work for both print and the web. He also has expert knowledge of the primary Adobe and Macromedia software. As well as excellent production experience.

His primary focus as a graphic designer is to create work that is aesthetically pleasing but also communicates our client's messages clearly. As part of his commitment to the Atlanta design community he has taught at the Portfolio Center.

When Tom isn't creating logos or websites he's busy maintaining his 100 year old house in Grant Park or riding bikes with his kids.
