With nearly 20 years of experience working in the United States, Europe and Asia, Chaffer has a wide range of expertise launching global and local brands, and generating award-winning branded content for digital screens of all shapes and sizes.
"We've watched Elliott's career over the years and were always very impressed," states Jakob Trollbäck, Executive Creative Director of Trollbäck + Company. "His solid grasp of brand building and experience in the broadcast industry makes him a great addition to our team."
"I've long been a fan of Jakob's, and have often followed the work out of T+Co," adds Chaffer. "I'm always looking to challenge myself and it felt like the right time to make the jump. I'm especially excited about the opportunity to do more live experiential and interactive screen work, which T+Co has done very successfully."
A big-picture creative and strategic thinker, Chaffer was most recently at Loyalkaspar, where he led a number of notable projects, including the rebrand for the nationwide cinema pre-show network Screenvision, a film for Amnesty International's 50th Anniversary, the global launch of Disney XD and the Marvel Universe, the credit sequence for "House At the End of The Street" starring Jennifer Lawrence, stage content for Shakira's World Tour, Jay Z, and U2, as well as The Who's Super Bowl Halftime Show performance.
Previously, he was Partner/Director of Milk, a small design agency creating direct-to-brand assignments, such as corporate IDs, music videos and album covers. Chaffer launched his career at MTV Europe, working his way up to Director and Producer on launch campaigns, promos and type sequences during his four-year tenure.
In 2001, he co-wrote a design/art book, "Sneakers, Size Isn't Everything," which won D&AD and ADC Awards, and directed an accompanying documentary about sneaker collectors. The film screened globally on the onedotzero film festival circuit, Resfest Tokyo, Channel 4, MTV, and Ikon TV.
