D.C.-area agency items: Curley, LINK and Brent Almond Design

by | Feb 17, 2022

The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) adds Curley Company as its Agency of Record following a competitive search for a partner with deep integrated communications expertise to showcase the industry’s growing impact on people, culture and the economy.  According to a release, this new partnership follows news “that overall consumer spending on video games in the U.S. totaled $60.4 billion in 2021, an 8% increase over 2020.  Strategic areas of focus for the effort include workforce and education, digital wellness, consumer protection, marketplace access and operations, and foundational issues such as protecting innovation and defending the freedom of expression.”

ESA President and CEO Stanley Pierre-Louis said:“We look forward to working with the Curley Company to articulate the many ways the video game industry drives a dynamic and growing entertainment ecosystem that not only provides engaging interactive content, but also spurs local economic growth through live esports competitions, educational opportunities and high-wage careers.”

LINK adds Sherryl Newman and Christian Clansky to its D.C. staff. Newman joins LINK after a 35-year career performing executive leadership roles in strategic planning and transformational change across both public and private sector organizations, including serving as Secretary of State for the District of Columbia. Clansky joins LINK after serving as Director of Marketing and Digital Strategy for Independent Sector, where, states a release, “he explored new approaches to audience engagement, amplified stories of high impact social innovation, and oriented a dynamic national network of changemakers towards equitable outcomes for under resourced and underrepresented communities.”

Brent Almond, owner and creative director of Brent Almond Design in D.C., is included in Graphic Design USA’s People to Watch in 2022.  According to GDUSA: “Creativity informs, fuels and inspires every aspect of Brent Almond’s life. As he enters his third decade as a graphic designer, art director and illustrator, he continues to approach every project with the question: “How can I make this more informative, beautiful, meaningful or fun?”

“Brent began his career at several successful design firms before branching out on his own. As a one-man shop, Brent has partnered with the likes of NPR, The Kennedy Center, Girl Scouts, The Nature Conservancy and The Washington Post. His work has been honored by over 200 industry awards and publications.”
