Aaron Duffy

Creative Lead / Co-Founder
SpecialGuest

Aaron Duffy is a creative director, thinker, maker, and co-founder of SpecialGuest. As a director at 1stAveMachine for 10 years, Aaron has built his career finding new ways to delight and challenge viewers. Most recently, Aaron was on AdWeek’s list of 30 Creatives Whose Smart, Funny and Innovative Work Keeps Advertising Interesting. Aaron’s perspective is that there is an unnecessarily large gap between the world of art for marketing and art for art’s sake. In reality, the two are the same. He intends to prove this to the world with SpecialGuest. Aaron is an avid crocheter and lives in Brooklyn, NY with his turtle, Chevy.
