The Team

We’re a close team that works and plays hard. We’re looking for others that like to do the same. If that sounds like you, let’s chat.

Nick Platt
Founder/CEO

With a career spanning two continents and decades, Nick Platt creates magic in the moments that matter. As the CEO and Founder of LO:LA, he is carrying out a lifelong ambition to not only re-imagine advertising creative that resonates, but is also “Made with Love.” Nick is proudly a big agency ex-pat determined to prove that independent creative shops can be nimble, fast and cost-efficient without sacrificing quality. He’s making outstanding advertising available.

As the former Executive Creative Director for RAPP L.A., Nick conceptualized campaigns using Broadcast, OOH, digital and direct. His uniquely London-meets-LA POV, coupled with his mastery of Creative Strategy, Brand Development, Advertising and Direct Marketing, compels him to find the genuinely authentic and compelling story in every product he champions and company he collaborates with. While at RAPP, Nick created campaigns for Bank of America, Toyota, Mattel, Nescafe, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, Roy’s, and Cycle Gear, as well as pro bono work for Special Olympics and Step Up to Cancer (SU2C).

For the past 12 years, Rosanne has swiftly ascended the ranks of global advertising agencies, specializing in brand and creative strategy development, integrated marketing and client relations.

In addition to managing clients with candor and sense of humor, Rosanne oversees LO:LA’s new business development. Her broad range of experience in several industries and brands, as well as her strengths in direct marketing, brand & creative strategy, and analytics & insights have culminated in her presence at LO:LA.

Rosanne’s personal passion for high-end real estate and interior design is rivaled only by her love for her puppy, Hudson. Her knowledge, access and use of appropriately hilarious gifs and memes in text conversations is legendary.

Robert Bridwell
Partner, Creative Director

Robert Bridwell is an artist at heart. As Creative Director for LO:LA, Robert masterfully blends art and commerce, drawing on more than 15 years of production and graphic design experience to produce campaigns that truly resonate with brands and consumers alike. His extensive experience in advertising, branding and direct marketing, as well as bringing intangible client needs to life despite challenging expectations, tight deadlines and even tighter budgets is an art unto itself, mostly because he makes it look effortless.

Starting as a tattoo artist for 10 years in Los Angeles, he dreamed of honing his craft and realizing his full potential. After getting his design education from the Platt School for Design, he worked as a Designer/Production Artist at Saatchi & Saatchi, where he created “Saatchi After Hours”, a gathering for non-creative employees to learn more about the creative process.

As he grew at Saatchi, opportunities to grow into an Art Director began to present themselves. After four and a half years, he moved to the creative shop at DirectTV, where he excelled and succeeded in landing more work at Ambry Genetics and RAPP. Here, he conceptualized and produced print and digital direct response marketing collateral for Bank of America, Mattel and AARP, lead art direction for Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar, and encouraged moms to take a digital dive into Pinterest on behalf of Hot Wheels.

While not building residential elevator cabs in his free time (yes, that’s a real thing), Robert’s passion is communicating through design and he remains dedicated to the art of craft of impactful advertising. In addition to earning an Associate of Arts in Graphic Design from Platt College, he diligently continued his pursuit of the craft by attending The Art Institute of California, studying Photography, Branding and Graphic Design. He rounded out his education with a focus on Creative Concepting for Art Direction at the Book Shop.

Every summer Robert retreats to the mountains with his family for week where he is off the grid and out of sight. It may be training for the apocalypse, but we’ll never know.
