Dorn Martell

Artist. Musician. World traveler. Environmentalist. Organic farmer. Dorn Martell has worn many hats in his lifetime, and now he’s adding one more: Advertising Agency Owner. After 25 years as Creative Director at Tinsley, including one of the most unimaginable years ever in 2020, Dorn has taken a seat at the helm.


Dorn’s Agency saga began in Detroit at Ross Roy and Campbell Ewald, where he worked on Chevrolet’s “Heartbeat of America” campaign, which led to a stop in LA at Lintas: Campbell Ewald for work on Princess Cruises, Rockwell International and Bridgestone Tires.


After his Hollywood chapter, Dorn headed to Chicago, for tours at Bayer Bess Vanderwarker and DMB&B, working on national campaigns for Gatorade, Quaker Cereals, Kemper Insurance, Hyatt, Budweiser and Amoco. In his downtime, he wrote and directed an independent film called “Zug” (available on the video: “Best of Chicago Film Festival”).


And then came Tinsley, where he’s been creating timeless and award-winning work since 1995 for The Florida Keys & Key West, Cunard Line, The Yachts of Seabourn, The Boca Raton Resort & Club, City Furniture, and, most recently, Ponte Vedra Beach Resorts.
