Morgan Young, the principal at Young Ideas, has managed, written, directed, and produced countless Integrated Marketing Communications programs for clients ranging from Visa to ETS to Consumer Reports.
His work has consistently been among the most successful and creative in its field – moving and uniting public opinion firmly behind his clients’ causes and winning too-many-to-count basement dwelling, dust-collecting pieces of hardware better known as “creative awards.”
Morgan’s work has been put on permanent display in The Smithsonian’s American History Museum as part of their American Enterprise exhibit and has ran during the Super Bowl (albeit, only in California, but hey, we still think that’s pretty dang cool). Additionally, Morgan has produced an HBO long format program with Tom Brokaw on nuclear terrorism and his work has been featured on MTV, Showtime and CNN and numerous other outlets.
Prior to opening Young Ideas in 2008, Morgan served as the Senior Vice President and Creative Director of Goddard Claussen Strategic Advocacy. Prior to that, Morgan served as the Vice President and Creative Services Director for Fenn Communications, a Democratic campaign consulting firm based in Washington DC.
In addition to running Young Ideas, Morgan serves as adjunct faculty at The University of Colorado Leeds School of Business as well as at the University’s Masters of Science in Organizational Leadership. He has lectured on communications programs across the U.S. and Latin America. Despite of that experience, his command of the Spanish language is still dreadful.
Morgan holds a MA from The George Washington University and a BA from the University of Colorado. He lives in Boulder, Colorado with his two kids, one dog and seven guitars. There are rumors of a rogue cat as well, but neither he nor the cat will confirm knowledge of each other.
