Juliana Cobb


Group Creative Director, Droga 5, USA

Born in Canada, raised by a single mom, Juliana grew up traveling through India and Nepal. When they weren’t living in a bus by the monkey forests, they lived on room service and pillow mints at the InterContinental Hotel. (It was… complicated.) She was homeschooled and constantly moving, even back in the states. 

But being a perpetual outsider turned out to be invaluable. Juliana learned to make friends quickly and developed an almost bottomless empathy. She can’t remember a day in advertising that she didn’t lean on one or the other – and usually both.

In her 15-year career working at agencies on both coasts, she’s created award-winning work for smart clients on global brands that valued a good story as much as she did. She’s always looking for a new one to tell.

Manhattan is home (for now – and in a bona fide apartment), with husband Jonathan and soul-cat Charlie Parker. #charlieparkerthecat
