Mehera O'Brien

Head of Creative, New York

Mehera previously held positions as Executive Creative Director at Method, Creative Director at Dalberg Design, Managing Director of the Miami Ad School, Creative Director at AKQA, and Creative Director at Framfab.

Her career has taken shape across three continents – North America, Europe, and Africa – and reflects a combination of commercial and social impact work, with clients including USAID, Mercy Corps, Ann Taylor, Rogers Media, Coca-Cola, The Carlyle Group, Burundi Red Cross, United Kingdom Space Agency, and the New York Jets. She believes that expertise and presence in seemingly different sectors is an opportunity for cross-pollination and innovation.

Mehera, like all argonauts, strives to deliver something beautiful and easy to use, but is equally interested in an organization’s ability to launch and sustain a new product or service. Her operational experience leading programs and design teams helps clients translate design into their organizations, strategically and tactically.

Mehera is motivated by a deep fascination in the relationship between technology and culture, and its power to inspire business and societal change.
