Creative Director Ariel Wilchek is known for her creative spark and grit. She comes alive while collaborating with diverse, interdisciplinary teams to solve complex problems. With a BFA in Graphic Design from Savannah College of Art & Design and an MA in Exhibition Design from the Corcoran School at GWU, she leverages her 2D and 3D design training to take elegant risks in art direction and create meaningful visual stories. Over the past 10 years, Ariel has overseen the creation of immersive brand experiences, interactive installations, compelling content and user-friendly digital products for brands like Nike, Facebook, JPMorgan Chase, Mercedes-Benz, Sweetgreen, BuzzFeed, Fullscreen and GoPro. Her overflowing passion for new technology and strategic excellence further help her and her teams rise to new challenges and strive for innovation. As a founding and active member of OBE’s Diversity & Inclusion Group, she prioritizes representation and diversity of thought, always aiming to make ethical creative decisions that result in a thoughtful and informed user experience. Outside of office hours, you may find her downtown at an art museum or concert venue…or perhaps you won’t find her at all, as she is just as likely out of cell range camping in the Sequoias or tucked in a cabin in Big Sur.
