Neary Back on the Freelance Circuit

After spending just nine months as group creative director at Darien, CT-based Colangelo Synergy Marketing, where he worked with brands including Trojan and Guinness, Canice Neary has headed back into freelancing. We’ve reached out to the man himself for comment, but from what sources tell us, Neary, who’s currently based in New York, is heading back to his native turf in Chicago. The creative vet of course was the man who quietly took over the creative reins at the now-defunct Element 79 once Dennis Ryan left for the CCO gig at Olson in 2011, but subsequently left after just a year at the helm. Neary spent 11 years in all at Element 79, which was folded into DDB Chicago last fall.

During his career, the copywriter by trade has had full-time gigs at the likes of Lowe and W+K and has freelanced for several shops including 72andSunny and VSA.
