Creative. Inspirational. Kind. These are just a few words to describe Gaslight Creative’s award-winning co-founder, Jodie Pundsack.
Not only has Jodie helped lead the team at Gaslight Creative to win more than 130 American Adveritisng Awards in just fourteen years, she now gets to hold the title of American Advertising Federation (AAF) Silver Medal Award winner. As part of the 2023 American Advertising Awards competition, Jodie was awarded this prestigious honor in front of her peers. And while Jodie was surprised, the team at Gaslight was not. In our mind, this award was a long time coming.

She is always ready for the next challenge. Her ability to create brands and tell a story with every color, font, and fine detail is truly something special. Anyone that has had the pleasure of working alongside Jodie is sure to become a stronger, more well-rounded designer and creative.
