Charles Hodges

Founder, Executive Creative Director

Charles is inspired by people who want to change things. He founded Arts & Letters Creative Co. to be a home where talented people could partner with the world’s biggest dreamers to create ideas that do just that. He believes that the best ideas transcend advertising and become culture in their own right and that every idea has that potential if you’re willing to put in the effort. No stranger to transformative work, Charles began his career in New York as a copywriter at Wieden+Kennedy on Nike, ESPN, Heineken and Delta before departing to work at Google’s Creative Lab. Prior to founding Arts & Letters, Charles honed his approach for modern creative partnership as a Group Creative Director on Apple at TBWA’s Media Arts Lab in Los Angeles where he led global creative efforts for iPhone.

Danielle Flagg

Executive Creative Director

Danielle brings over twenty-five years of creative leadership to Arts & Letters, seventeen of those from Wieden+Kennedy in Portland, where she led work for Nike, Target, Starbucks, Levi’s, P&G and Girl Effect via the Nike Foundation, for which she moved to Ethiopia to lead for six months. Most recently, Danielle worked at TWBA\Media Arts Lab and MAL\FORGOOD leading work for Apple, Emerson Collective, Conservation International, and The One Love Foundation. She has climbed 16,300 vertical feet and submerged herself 80 feet below sea level, so it comes as no surprise that she fills Arts & Letters with a spirit of adventure, quirky manners of expression, and (perhaps most importantly) the idea of making an impactful, girlful difference out in the world.

Letitia Jacobs

Director of Integrated Production

Letitia inspires everyone at Arts & Letters to take great glee in defeating problems of all sizes, which is why she went into production — because there’s always an endless supply. Her guiding hand has helped agencies such as Droga5, BBH, Wieden+Kennedy, Crispin Porter + Bogusky, and Fallon create iconic work for brands such as Volkswagen, Nike, Land Rover, Verizon, Chevy, Hanes, Heineken, Burger King and Mini Cooper. Most recently, Letitia sat on the leadership team at The Martin Agency as an Executive Producer and Director of Project Management after spending three years as Y&R’s Executive Director of Content Production in New York.

Andy Grayson

Director of Strategy

At Arts & Letters, Andy can always be found espousing his firm belief that the best creative work comes from a place of provocative truth. It’s a trait that served him well at Wieden+Kennedy, where he directed strategy across all of Nike on global projects for Nike+, Nike Basketball, Nike Running, Nike Football, Nike Golf, and the Women’s World Cup. For Arts & Letters, Andy also combines this quest for the truth with agile process, having most recently worked with startups in San Francisco and Silicon Valley, and before that, redefining the strategic approach to the creative process as the Director of Brand Strategy for Goodby Silverstein and Partners in San Francisco.

Rich Weinstein

Managing Director

Rich comes into Arts & Letters every day with the belief that an agency’s greatest assets are its people.
