Tyler Sharkey

Growing up in NYC, I performed magic, juggling, and sideshow stunts everywhere from abandoned basements to the circus. You know Houdini the Great? Well, I’m Tyler the Okay. I balance creative and strategy on a tightrope, juggle multiple campaigns with ease, and deliver award-winning ideas all while getting shot out of a cannon. Okay, maybe not the cannon part. If you like what you see, the name's Tyler Sharkey. If not, it’s David Copperfield. Enjoy the show!

VISA RUSHCARD - CHANGE PERSPECTIVE

Acts of protest and police brutality create a growing divide between African-Americans and police. With the insight that empathy fosters understanding, we used spoken word to show a common message and change peoples' perspective.

You can see the mobile experience here.

Showtime - Backed By Axe

Showtime’s Billions revolves around hedge fund king Bobby Axelrod's thriving investment firm, Axe Capital. In the show, they invest in products and big ideas. So we brought Axe Capital to life and backed Kickstarter campaigns, providing the funding to reach their goals.

White Famous


White Famous


White Famous is about an African-American comedian's rise to fame, and it's many perks. So we debuted the White Famous trailer to A3C festival attendees by giving them the V.I.P.P. treatment.

Santo - A Higher Spirit

Santo combines the unique, smoky flavors of mezcal with the smooth, subtle flavors of tequila. So when we were tasked with branding this new liquor with its religious symbolism, we gave it our blessings and anointed it A Higher Spirit.

HBO - Steal This Show

Fans of Game of Thrones, Westworld, and The Sopranos will do anything to watch their favorite shows, even steal them. But rather than see HBO's popularity in the pirating world as a problem, we saw it as an opportunity and initiated the Steal This Show campaign, turning piraters into subscribers. 

Banners that appear on pirating sites whenever HBO shows were searched.

Playstation - MAAX Band

Video games are seen as a catalyst of childhood obesity. To combat these claims, we created MAAX Band, wearable technology that incentives kids to live a healthy life through gaming.
