My superpower: creating clarity out of chaos.
That means I can sift through the muddle of messages, ideas, insights, information gaps,
and opinions to find a clear, strategic path for developing compelling creative and taking
it into the wild with a smart plan that moves your brand forward.
I love bringing strategy, concepts, copy and leadership to brand development, websites, videos, direct mail, campaigns, emails, paid media, and long-form content (both online and print). I partner with clients and multi-disciplined teams to make clients successful.
No matter what industry I'm serving, my brain is happiest with deep thinking, smart creativity, respectful collaboration, variety, and the chance to keep learning and growing. I love a puzzle, and enjoy new challenges.
Another superpower - baking. We can talk about that later...
Here's my resumé. And if you like assessments, here are some insights into how my superpowers can help you:
Sarah Cook, MBA
Associate Creative Director, Fervor
Dawn has an incredible talent when it comes to brand strategy and creative direction. I’ve seen firsthand how she can dissect a client’s problems by asking the right questions and getting to the root of the issue. After her diligent investigative research, Dawn provides strategies that align with the client's goals while helping solve their problems.
Dawn takes that same care when it comes to leading teams. I’ve had the privilege of having Dawn as my direct supervisor for nearly two years. During that time, I’ve felt seen and heard by a boss who cares not only about my professional growth but also my personal growth. She empowers her team and leverages our expertise. I’ve learned many things from Dawn, but the one that stands out the most is how to be a great leader.
Creative Director, ndm
Dawn is a genius. She has an uncanny knack for deciphering complex marketing problems and crafting them into logical and compelling stories. Clients love her. Supervisors depend on her. Colleagues respect her. She's pleasant to work with, smart as a whip, and a talented communicator and writer. Yep, Dawn Mundy's got the goods.
Digital Marketing & Content Strategist, Fervor
Dawn has a unique gift to take all the parts and pieces of a brand, and shuffle and reorganize them into a nice neat package tied with the perfect bow. Her keen ear for details and savvy skill for words helped us clarify our client's messaging platforms into simple, accurate statements for use in any channel.
Her leadership as a supervisor is enjoyable, trustworthy, insightful and personal. I'm so grateful to have had the privilege of serving under her. She helped me grow in my own craft, pulling the best in me out of me — for the benefit of our team and our clients.
I consider it a privilege to work with Dawn Mundy in various capacities. She has been a fundamental part of my own (and many others') journey.
She's a leader ... the one people look to
She's curious ... the one who asks the REALLY hard questions.
She's a problem solver ... the one who delights in sinking deep into complex issues in pursuit of simplicity.
She's devoted ... the one who can't put it down, turn it off or walk away until its done.
She's well-rounded ... the one who can handle just about anything you throw her way.
She's gravitational ... the one who people enjoy and want to be around.
She's a TOTAL word nerd ... the one who brings a tasty new vocab lesson to the table.
She's a rock ... the one who weathers through, ship righted, sails full.
She can cook ... seriously. stupid. good. food.
She's a friend ... the one who listens well, says the right things and encourages.
There are many more qualities to describe Dawn ... integrity, class, heart, grit, etc., etc. I can confidently speak for the many that have shared any time with Dawn... she's someone you need on the team. You'll be the better for it.
CCO and Partner, Ruckus Creative Group
Director, Alternatives EAP
Dawn is the rare combination of creative genius and acute business savvy that every manager dreams of hiring. She will take the most lifeless concept or message and enrich, transform, and elevate it through her writing. Her contributions to creative strategy and product development are invaluable, always first evaluating her ideas to ensure feasibility and profitability. I would hire her again in an instant.
Heather Downs Knight
Growth & Communications Leader,
Two Men and a Truck
Dawn excels at a wide variety of creative executions, from scriptwriting and directing, to long-form copy, to DM headlines and digital content. She understands her audience, mediums, and all the possibilities in between. She is strategic, creative, collaborative, fast, thorough, versatile and dependable. She works to understand each challenge from top to bottom, plumbing the depths to find true insight.
Dawn is the most wonderful kind of introvert. She can sell ideas in to teams and clients. Maybe it's her onstage singing experience or theatre background, but Dawn knows exactly how to prep a presentation and deliver it with warmth, confidence and precision. She is also an excellent listener. You should ask for her thoughts on what you just said.
Bottom line: Dawn delivers. Once she's briefed, she's off and running. Account managers can get a little worried if it's too quiet on the creative front, but not with Dawn. She is the consummate professional and knows how to manage her own time and resources to deliver excellence. She adds value to everything she touches. Dawn Mundy makes the world go 'round.

Dawn is an incredibly dedicated, detail-oriented team player. She can lead a team while also collaborating with team members and clients.
Her understanding of the power behind the written word is unmatched. She can use words to make people think, cry, act and reflect.
I've watched her work with large groups and one-on-one with clients to help communicate the message of a project. During her communication she clearly explains the expectations, deadlines and content involved.
Dawn is a masterful artist and creator - she's one of the best.
