Deluxe Creative Services has brought on producer Joanna Woods, who will oversee projects in Chicago for co-located sister companies Beast, Company 3 and Method Studios.
Woods (pictured above) has worked on TV, radio, video and web content for brands including Allstate, Walmart, Coors Light, Sprint, KFC and more. She comes to the team from Music Dealers, where she worked closely with agency and post house producers, as well as in-house engineers. She has also held production roles at Another Country studios and Chicago Recording Company.
“It’s rare in Chicago for one facility to have centralized production encompassing editorial, finishing, color and graphics all under one roof. Beast, Company 3 and Method all have great standing in our community in terms of both caliber of work and client relations,” says Woods.
In other employee news, Kendall Fash (pictured right), who was previously in the producer role, has been named national director of marketing for Beast. She will remain based in Chicago.
Fash has been with Beast’s Chicago office for five years, most recently in the role of senior producer across Beast, Company 3 and Method. In her new position she will oversee marketing initiatives for all seven Beast facilities across the US. Fash has shepherded many projects through the Chicago office, working with brands such as Nike, McDonald’s, Michelob Ultra and Yelp, and top ad agencies in both the local market and nationwide.
