About

My name is Rebekah Marcum and I am a Seattle based Hybrid Creative and Art Director.

“Hybrid: /'hi,brid/ a thing made by combining two different elements; a mixture.”

At the end of each day, I want to be able to look back and see how my work has contributed to something other than being well designed noise in the backdrop of someone's day. I want to develop the tools to make creativity strategic. In that, I am thinking beyond the executions, style, and visuals to see how they serve a greater purpose across an entire campaign and tap into a greater story within society.

My goal is to be in a constant state of learning. Whether it be exploring a design or illustration style, practicing a motion graphic effect, or building and using a new camera rig, I am continually playing with software and new tools to be able to better my workflow and skill set as a creative.

For the past three years I have made Seattle my home, alongside my husband and hyper-active Australian Shepherd, Atlas. Currently, As an Associate Art Director on Amazon Media Group's Advertising Design and User Experience team I curate custom advertising solutions that span the entire Amazon ecosystem for a wide variety of clients including Adidas, Fitbit, and Under Armour among many others.
