Max Franklin, Detroiter-by-birth and current Chicago resident, has joined our Creative team as a senior art director. He recently spent time at Dentsu’s Chicago office, working on brands like Famous Footwear, the US Open, Marriott, Brita, and a bevy of beloved KraftHeinz brands like Kool-Aid, Planters, Oscar Mayer, and Lunchables. His good nature and great ideas have made it easy to welcome Max to our creative crew.
As with all Planeteers, Max’s non-9-to-5 endeavors fuel what he does on-the-clock for our weekend and workshop clients. To wit:
If you won $500 but you had to spend it on one of your hobbies, what would you buy?
I’d probably get some new hockey equipment. Mine is so old I can’t wash the smell out.
How about $10,000?
I’d put it towards building an art studio/woodshop. I think I might need to take out a loan to finish it though.
What’s your favorite productive hobby?
It varies from time to time. Right now, I’d say restoring old furniture. I just restored an old drafting table that was sitting in someone’s barn for 30 years.
What’s your favorite non-productive hobby?
Wondering what animals I could beat in a wrestling match… so far the list is pretty short.
What’s your favorite sport to play?
Hockey and golf
What game did you play most during the pandemic?
