WE BELIEVE GREAT PEOPLE MAKE ADS. NOT GREAT AD AGENCIES.
Graham Simon - Creative Director / Copywriter / Obsessed with all Things Cars
Graham wanted to write ads, specifically cars ads. And that’s exactly what he did for the first 10 years of his career. Soon after leaving the high-performance world of car commercials, he moved into the real world to work on clients ranging from Barbie to Red Bull and just about everything in between. He met Noel at Ogilvy ten years ago and they have worked together as creative partners ever since.

Noel Woolfolk - Creative Director / Art Director / Pixel Hoarder
Noel is the true definition of a “Nomad.” She was born in Rotterdam, raised in West Africa, lived in Paris, Santa Barbara, San Francisco, then Amsterdam to begin her career in advertising, and eventually to LA to work at Team One. Ogilvy came next where she was forced to work with a freelance copywriter named Graham. Noel is an art director with an artist mentality. Her worldly path can be seen in her personal style and design sensibility.

Cambria Guernsey - Marketing Director / Frenchie Aficionado
Cambria is the marketing glue that holds together all elements of the Nomads story – advertising, media, sales, social, PR and client relationships. She has extensive experience launching brands and bringing CPG start-ups into mass retail - something that makes a whole lot of sense for our roster of entrepreneurial food and beverage clients.
She specializes in becoming the “right-hand (wo)man” for our clients. She is able to rapidly (and somewhat magically) integrate into the team in order to support and help develop of our client’s brand story, marketing executions, as well as increasing online sales during core selling seasons.
Client Experience: Flow Water, Health-Ade Kombucha, Beanfields Chips, Rise Bar, Neuro
WE ARE 3 PEOPLE. THAT IS OUR COMPANY.
OUR TEAM, HOWEVER, IS INFINITE.
Every project requires a different set of skills. It might be production, experiential, design, media buying and so on. The one constant is that every project needs a guiding force (that’s us) who can help steer the ship. There’s a whole lot The Nomads can do on our own - because we’ve done it over and over again. But we will be the first to admit when a task is beyond our expertise. So immediately, we tap into our wealth of resources that we’ve amassed in our over 30 years of advertising experience. And create the ideal “dream team” suited to the project at hand.
