"Skip was an extremely influential mentor in my career and one of my all-time favorite connecting partner. Truthfully, he taught me how to concept and think conceptually on a professional level. He's a tremendous thinker, writer and friend. Skip is always willing to give you his time and he is certainly generous with it when you ask. Beyond being one of KC's steadiest hands when it comes to skilled copywriting he is a true joy to work with on a daily basis. Having Skip as a part of your team instantly makes your group more intelligent, well-rounded and sophisticated."

“Skip is a pleasure to work with. He took the time to find out about the product and the process, the vision and what was important to communicate. He caught the passion of the company and was able to put that passion in writing. I highly recommend him!”

Margi Swords, Farm to Market Bread Company


“It’s tricky trying to put a label on the multi-talented, much-lauded, complicated man that is Skip Quimby. Creative director, creative concept strategist, copywriter, voice-over talent … yes, he is all those things. He’s also a leader and a collaborator, a serious thinker and a craftsman, a mentor and a friend. Smart. Sharp. Direct. That’s Skip’s conversational style. Maybe not always what you think you want to hear, but something you know you don’t want to forget. Because it’s likely to be a crucial part of solving whatever advertising or marketing puzzle you have before you.
During the 8+ years Skip was at GlynnDevins, I was fortunate to work directly with him on several occasions. Beyond being personally enriched by those experiences, I know he left an indelible stamp of creative professionalism on countless projects, programs and processes — as well as a profound impression on his coworkers.
Skip decries mediocrity, defies categorization and ultimately will decide his own future. I have no doubt he’ll make the right choices. And anyone who chooses to give Skip a seat at their creative table — as a guest or at the head of that table — can count on a feast of creative chops, knowledge, experience, flavor and flair.”

Laura Christensen,

Creative Copy Manager/Agency Editor, GlynnDevins Advertising & Marketing.

“As a neophyte writer, Skip played an integral part in shaping my career. He pushed me daily to excel in my work with my art director partners. And although he was perfectly adept at completing on the work himself, he was great at collaborating with me and helping me find solutions for clients. I appreciated his mentorship in letting me come to the right conclusions rather than have them done for me. All this was done with his unique sense of humor, which made working at GlynnDevins even better.” December 19, 2011
Carrie Lighthall, Writer/Producer, GlynnDevins

“One of Skip's greatest strengths is guiding strategy to help teams deliver more focused, interesting work. He's also a talented writer, a seasoned creative professional, and a 'go to guy' in tough situations. Skip isn't afraid to bring up those tough questions others are afraid to ask. I recommend Skip for your next creative challenge.” December 18, 2011
Kris Grazier, Senior Vice President/Creative, GlynnDevins

“Skip is a creative force to be reckoned with. Whenever I had the pleasure to work on his team, I knew we would come away with a winning idea. He challenges you to think about a problem from all angles and not just settle with the first or easiest idea that comes about. Not only is he a brilliant copywriter, but he is also a great creative manager. I always felt comfortable going to Skip with a problem - be it a creative one or otherwise. He's passionate about his job and will make a strong addition to any team.” December 14, 2011

Keith Boaz, Associate Creative Director, GlynnDevins

“I worked with Skip Quimby at my first agency job. Even though he was in a different department – himself in creative and me in account management – he was a terrific mentor and strategic partner. Skip was always looking for innovative ways to grow our clients’ business and challenge the norms. He is a leader by nature whose high standards are ever present, refreshing and inspiring. His work is mindful and on strategy – even if the brief is less than a masterpiece (like I said, it was my first job).

Skip was a great team member and I look forward to our paths crossing again.”
December 8, 2011
Ali Ladner, Account Executive, GlynnDevins

“As an account person who has a secret love for all things related to the creative process and getting to great ideas - I treasure opportunities that allow me to work with excellent creative minds like Skip.
One of the most important things I learned from Skip is how powerful a tool the creative brief can be, and how to develop a brief that speaks to want the client wants but still empowers the creative team to bring dynamic ideas to the table. I learned a lot watching and engaging with Skip in discussions about creative briefs for projects we were working on together - which I apply on a daily basis as I work through projects with my creative team.

It was a pleasure working with Skip not only because he was a excellent creative leader, but also because he taught me a lot about the balance needed to produce great client work.”

Katherine Meyer, Account Executive, GlynnDevins Advertising and Marketing

“Without question, Skip Quimby is one of the most talented individuals I have worked with during my 30 years in the advertising/marketing industry.
He has the unique ability to analyze the most complex situation and boil it down to the fundamental aspects that need to be addressed.
Skip’s ability to then take those key points and present them to the target market via a compelling creative solution, is even more impressive. I can honestly say, I have never come across one individual that has both the analytical and creative skills that Skip possesses. He truly has a unique skill set.” December 7, 2011

In addition, I have used Skip and his voice talent for radio spots, which were spot on for our target audience. Did I mention you'd have fun working with him as well? Always a plus. You can't go wrong working with Skip Quimby.” December 7, 2011
Mindy McDermott, Account Executive, Pepper & Associates

He's a passionate and fun leader to work under, and he combines his years of experience with a thirst for the "New." He knows his way around advertising no matter how much it changes.”

Candice Yagmin, Senior Account Group Director, GlynnDevins

“I have known Skip, his writing and his voice-over work for years. Long before we finally worked together. His easy going collaborative style makes it a joy to work with him, and he pushes the creative in directions that successfully solves problems and engages the client.

His management style is firm but fair and his insights improved my work and made me a better art director. Our work sessions never seemed like work, we laughed a lot and usually came up with severals solutions that could develop into full blown campaigns.

He has a thorough command of how effective branding can result in higher awareness and sales. And finally, he can make a headline do the heavy lifting, and the body copy sing -- the kind of writer every art director dreams about. I have always valued his knowledge, sense of humor, advice and most important, his friendship.”

Here’s what you oughtta know about Skip: Honest. Intelligent. Good mix of witty/funny. Observant. Passionate. Wicked-talented. A mentor. A friend. An inspired, inspiring creative. Pass him up at your own peril. Because Skip will elevate you, and the work. I should know. I constantly hear his voice when I'm writing, encouraging me to put some mustard on it.

Andee Weinfurt, copywriter, GlynnDevins

“Over the years I’ve really come to appreciate and respect Skip Quimby as a work associate and friend. It wasn’t always easy, because Skip makes you work. He asks tough questions and he sets tough expectations. He’s not satisfied if there isn’t demonstrated smart, thorough thinking behind the effort. But he demands nothing greater than what he is prepared to deliver himself. Skip is candid, straight-forward, honest. It’s why clients appreciate his involvement in their business, and why he earns the respect of his team, no matter what their discipline or level of responsibility. Skip has a special ability of spotting and nurturing talent and he brings out the best in people.

“As a colleague, Skip Quimby is as valuable as they come, not only for his creative and strategic thinking, but also for his exacting analysis of what makes something work or not work, and his ability to explain that to others. He’s smart, dynamic, and a great leader. What makes him great as a supervisor and mentor, are the qualities that underlie his sometimes gruff exterior. He's kind, an astute listener, and very sensitive to others feelings. And funny. You can't forget funny, because it's so necessary for survival in this business. Skip not only survives, he helps others thrive.”

Landa Williams, President, Landajob

“I've know Skip longer than I care to say. I was a partner at Contemporary Illustrators and Custom Color Corp. When he first came to a photo shoot selling skis, I wondered what he would bring to the shoot. I found that he is multi-talented, creative and just fun to be with. He definitely not a "stuff shirt." You can't imagine the "voices" that come out of the guy. On top of all that, he's a nice guy which is hard to find in this business”
