Noah Marshall was born in New Zealand and now splits his time between Auckland and Los Angeles. He began his career as an art director down under — at BBDO, FCB, Bates, among others. Over the years he saw a lot of commercial directors do their thing and he thought, “That’s cool, I dig that.” Thus began his transition to commercial director… and well, here we are.
Marshall’s work boasts a visual-heavy gravitas. The imagery is bold and cinematic, yet always keeps humanity at the core of the story. It’s not just beautiful imagery for beauty’s sake; it’s beauty contextualized that serves the greater purpose of the story, and when relevant, very honest humanity. In short, Marshall swings all sorts of ways – emotional, humorous, adrenalized, slow-burn, fast-clip. All in a day’s work.
Marshall has worked with brands you’ve definitely heard of: Nike, McDonald’s, Sony, Audi, Mercedes, Toyota, Chevrolet, Head & Shoulders, General Motors, Heineken, Coca-Cola, to name a few. His work has been recognized internationally at Cannes, the CLIOs, OneShow, D&AD, AICP, Shots, the London International Awards, and more.
He enjoys witticisms, a fine lager, surfing, and his family of five. In no particular order.
