Vladimir Jones Welcomes Creative Producer and Project Architect to the Agency

New Integrated Producer will be instrumental in bringing ideas to life for clients through Hall Pass Productions, through his unique creative vision, innovative production background and his strategic project management expertise.

COLORADO SPRINGS, May 8, 2024 – Vladimir Jones, an advertising agency that prides itself on being 100% women-owned and independent, has announced that Robert Murphy has joined its Colorado-based team today as the newly appointed Integrated Producer.

“As Hall Pass Productions and our agency as a whole continue to expand, Rob is the kind of invaluable leader that a creative department dreams of—exceptionally smart, multi-tasking master and people just love working with him,” commented Jim Morrissey, Vladimir Jones Executive Creative Director. “His passion for creative production and all things strategic process makes him an invaluable asset to our VJ team!”

Murphy has been working in marketing communications for over a decade, helping to create highly successful creative advertising campaigns across multiple verticals. He started his professional career right after completing his Siena College education in 2008 by working as an account and client services specialist at various reputable advertising agencies in New York.

Most recently, at Torch Media, Murphy was responsible for managing all aspects and execution of all media projects, which included multifaceted production timelines with pre-production, production, and post-production requirements. By combining his innovative content curation and consistent communication with clients, he ensured a high-quality experience for every client. In his capacity as the sole producer at this company, he was responsible for keeping track of budgets and assigning team members within the company, which led to consistently meeting target profit margins. Murphy’s years of creative production and project management experience fueled his leadership in implementing efficient and effective processes that led to consistent growth for the company.

“Since moving to Colorado, I’ve only heard positive things about Vladimir Jones, which is why I’ve been eagerly following their exceptional work for some time,” commented Murphy. “I am extremely proud to be a part of this team and excited to work with Hall Pass Productions, our in-house production department, to bring brilliant brands to life!”

Murphy’s time at Torch Media was preceded by his time as the creative producer at PopSockets in Boulder, Colorado. He contributed significantly to the creation of consistently high-level creative and productions through his collaborative leadership. During his time with the company, he excelled and perfected his skills in 3D rendering, execution, and strategic development. 

Futuristic Films in Denver, Colorado, hired Murphy as its integrated producer prior to his work at PopSockets. During his time at Futuristic, he was responsible for conceptual planning, workflow project management, and logistic coordination across cross-functional teams for projects and deliverables. He acted as both the lead producer, production manager, and assistant director while also managing crews and agency partners.

“Rob is an incredible addition to an already amazing, diverse, and creative Hall Pass Productions team here at the agency,” said Debbie Frickey, Vladimir Jones President. “We’re looking forward to creating more life-changing work together to meet the needs of our brilliant clients and partners.

From inception to completion, Murphy’s role as the Integrated Producer is to oversee the production process of advertising campaigns with the Hall Pass Productions team. His collaboration with internal teams, clients, and external vendors will ensure that projects are executed successfully within budget and on schedule. As an industry leader with a long-standing presence in advertising, Vladimir Jones has maintained a unique perspective by holding to an approach that encompasses both breadth and depth when it comes to amplifying brands. Rob’s leadership and expertise will help our clients’ abstract ideas to take shape, empowering them to think big and act bigger with Hall Pass Productions.
