Steve Haviland is a Creative Director and Copywriter with over twenty-five years of experience building global brands through strong conceptual work ranging from television and video to print, direct mail, radio, collateral and increasingly, the web.

He grew up in the majestic Hudson River valley, graduated from Cornell University and wrote his first ads in New York City. After moving to Cape Town, South Africa, he became Senior Writer at Darcy’s and Creative Director and Member of the Board at Ogilvy & Mather. His work on Mobil, Hoover, South African Breweries and Shell Oil earned him numerous accolades. But it was the beaches, mountains, people, wineries, cricket & rugby that kept him there. Steve moved to Atlanta in 1994 where his work on SunTrust, Simmons and other accounts earned him Addie, Effie, Show South, One Show and CA Annual Awards.

In 1999, Steve left the agency world to become a creative consultant and President of Haviland’s Inc. where he continues to be a big believer in brand synergy and orchestration – getting all the aspects of your brand to sing together in one voice.

He resides in Atlanta with his wife and two boys who run him ragged on the basketball court in his back yard.
