For me, forming meaningful connections with teams and fellow leaders is an absolute must. The magic happens when everyone’s on the same page. I am thankful for the opportunity to work with such amazing, talented folks.

It was truly a pleasure working with someone as motivated and enthusiastic as Ken. He consistently went above and beyond to ensure that our team was bringing fresh, relative content to our customers while both meeting deadlines and continuously improving cross-functional communication and collaboration. His positive attitude and strong work ethic were contagious, and he left us with a legacy of process improvements that we are still building upon today. Focused on tangible, measurable results, it was never difficult to build or pivot on projects with Ken.

As a designer, his work was pristine – he was consistently meeting or exceeding business requests, but was always receptive to feedback nonetheless. He could expertly bring a story to life from start to finish, helping the marketing team ensure seamless, full-funnel journeys for our customers. The Ashley Outlet brand standards remain one of his most notable contributions on the design side, where despite an ebbing strategy, he built a distinguished presence to complement the existing Ashley brand standards.

I would be delighted to work with Ken again if ever given the chance, and thus would recommend him as a multi-faceted creative leader to any lucky organization.

Ken’s creative vision and expertise were instrumental in shaping the creative direction of our organization. His depth of experience was evident in every project he led. His ability to conceptualize innovative campaigns and translate them into visually stunning designs was nothing short of exceptional.

Ken is a true creative force and his dedication to producing high-quality designs, and ability to meet project deadlines with precision were assets that greatly benefitted our team.

I had the chance to work with Ken to help jumpstart sales efforts for a division of Rakuten Advertising. Our task was to find the right positioning to help generate buying interest among our target audience and to package our solution in the most appealing way possible. Also we had less than six months to produce results. In addition to the passion he brought to the project, his creativity, skill at design and desire to understand every customer challenge were second to none. Through his efforts and some of my own we indeed found success and grew the division by 100% YOY.

Ken is a problem solver, a collaborative thinker and a great creative partner. He is a master at taking words and stories and illustrating them through design, and has worked closely with executive leadership to bring their speeches to life through imagery and animation. Ken is a brilliant brand marketer and he and his team have always provided exceptional design services, finding ways to make our content and our ideas sparkle. I could come to Ken with a seed of an idea, and through some brainstorming and creativity, he would help me transform my idea into a full blown creative campaign.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Ken for 13 years. Early in my career, Ken was one of the first people I collaborated with and he was incredibly patient and helpful in sharing information and best practices with me as I was learning processes and systems. As I have grown in my role Ken has continued to be supportive, responsive and has added value to everything we have worked on together. He isn’t just great at what he does, he also cares about the work and the people. Ken’s talent, drive and positive attitude make him an asset to any team!

Ken has reformed the way I look at and understand brand standards, helped me to evangelize the benefits of working cross-functionally and with a global perspective. One of Ken’s greatest strengths is his ability in nurturing a truly creative culture, injected with humor, with his team and with others outside of his organization.

I had the great pleasure of working with Ken in his capacity as Creative Director at Ashley Global Retail. He brought an entirely new skillset with him and was fearless in his willingness to jump in and engage on the big projects. He is a consummate communicator and a true master of brand and creative development. Plus, he’s just a pleasure to be around. I will miss his sense of humor and our team meetings will never be the same.

Ken is an excellent mentor and leader. He is supportive of his team and fosters a collaborative and open work environment. Most importantly to me though, Ken is a leader that I respect. I respect him because he is talented and knowledgeable creatively. He’s transparent, honest and approachable. He is by far one of the most genuine and amazing leaders I have had the privilege to work with.

Ken Drab is a leader, a forward thinker and a great designer. As a manager, his support and backing of those under him was exceptional finding ways to support and push you to do better and be better. Working with Ken has been a great experience.

Raul Sinclair


Ken Drab is an elite creative and brilliant executive. But what impresses me most is that he dives into his projects with heart! His passion is contagious, his teams adore him and his projects bark emotion! His stakeholders, clients and audience don’t just experience his creativity. They internalize it. I can only count on one hand the number of advertising professionals that can pull that off.

John Degnan


Ken’s marketing and graphic design capabilities are superb. I have collaborated with Ken on several projects and highly recommend him to anyone looking to have a website developed or anyone who requires assistance in marketing and brand development. His work is exceptional and his ability to communicate effectively with the client is nothing short of outstanding.

Ivan Gatewood


I’ve had the privilege of working under Ken’s leadership at Rakuten Advertising for several years, where we collaborated on numerous rebranding initiatives. Ken’s ability to push design boundaries while fostering a cohesive team environment is exceptional. His dedication as a leader, mentor, and facilitator has been instrumental in the company’s success.

Under Ken’s guidance, he enthusiastically managed and mentored three creative teams, promoting cross-functional collaboration and unity. One standout achievement was the team’s joint effort to create a Creative microsite, allowing the team to showcase our diverse design capabilities in UX/UI, video, and web development.

Ken’s dedication, passion, and expertise make him a valued leader, and I highly recommend him for your next creative leadership role.
