Cutters Studios announced that it has promoted Marian Oliver to editor.
Oliver has spent the past six years at Cutters rising through the ranks and working with some of the biggest agencies and brands in the industry. Her most recent projects include campaigns for Meijer, Hallmark, Southwest Airlines, Kiwi, Abbott, belVita, Chamberlain, RetailMeNot and Triscuit.
In commenting on her work with his agency, The Distillery Project’s Founder and Chief Creative Officer John Condon said, “They say what we do isn’t rocket science, but then one day you find yourself doing a spot that is in fact rocket science. Marian put together a story that not only explained what it took for the European Space Agency to land a probe on a comet going 34,000 mph, but that also touched people emotionally.”
Oliver began her career in client services at Red Car Chicago in 2009. After earning her degree from Columbia College Chicago, she joined Cutters in 2012 as an assistant editor.
In commenting on Marian’s promotion, Craig Duncan, Managing Director/Partner at Cutters said “Over the years, she has truly become an MVP, earning the trust of our most esteemed brand and agency clients, our topmost collaborators, and everyone in our organization. It’s a real honor to have been part of her career journey to this point. I have no doubt she will continue to rise and thrive in her new position.”
A member of the highly respected Free the Bid database of women in the creative industry, Oliver is also a passionate photographer who travels as often as possible in search of the perfect light.
“The support and leadership at Cutters is unparalleled in my experience, and I have had the opportunity to learn from some of the world’s top editors here,” Oliver said. “The nurturing, family-like atmosphere here has allowed me to grow into who I am today, which I am exceedingly grateful for. I am so excited for this next step and more chances to make this company proud.”
