I feel a big responsibility, because this role requires skills that I need to perfect, such as organizing and rigorous planning. But I know I can rely on my colleagues support on this department. In return, on the coaching, feedback, taking overs / centering and other gimmicks that come with seniority I feel very comfortable at. I love the team effort, I cannot stand the self-pride when I am at the office, I keep them for my personal artistic expression in the arias of paint and design,” said Marc Bortun, Creative Director Rusu+Bortun.

What I am hoping to succeed alongside my colleagues in the client service, strategy and creation departments is to do things in a more relaxed manner, with that type of delight and joy that something do not find their place anymore, to do those projects that we would be proud of, the client to be comfortable and even happy and to satisfy the public’s intelligence and need for beauty. With the less stress as possible. The most important thing is that the challenges to be clear,in order for us to thing the right solutions. and that because for us, as an agency, is not enough to make things look pretty. They need to be strategic as well. And to convince the clients, to solve the problems for which they are investing us with trust, no matter if they are entrepreneurs or intrapreneurs. To be able to have that harmonious relationship in which we have trust and respect between each other. To deserve ourselves

Marc is a native creative, a very conceptual visual artist, converted to advertising by the love for people, humor and the meaning they can reveal. He has been working for 20 years in the industry, 13 of which we have been a team. A creative team, art and copy, and now, at the anniversary clock it arrived the moment to become also a management team. If for 10 years Marc’s role has been to generate ideas and visual craft,now is the time to provoke, to select and harmonize the talents at Corbeni 3. We want more from Rusu+Bortun and that implies skin in the game, which comes with motivation, not only with responsibility. For me it has been a big chance to have Marc close all these years. I am sure that this is how it will be for our colleagues and the agency’s clients as well
