About

Beckham Ruff | Beckham Ruff Creative

Beckham Ruff Creative is a project-based thinkhouse utilized by advertising agencies, digital shops, design firms, in-house agencies and businesses nationwide seeking high-level conceptual thinking and compelling copywriting in their branding and marketing efforts.

An award-winning Creative Director and Copywriter, Beckham graduated from Rollins College with a B.A. in Psychology, honed the craft of copywriting at Atlanta's Portfolio Center, and climbed the creative ranks of Denver's top advertising agencies before opening Beckham Ruff Creative. Now located in South Carolina, Beckham offers her copywriting and creative direction services across the Carolinas, Georgia, Colorado and the entire country.

Equally passionate about large branding projects and small creative opportunities, Beckham approaches every assignment with the same philosophy - that great advertising starts with a truth, sparks a conversation, and builds relationships by making a connection between the advertiser and the heart and mind of the consumer. Her approach is the same whether selling European river cruises down the Danube or a tiny wine store in a hidden alley in Denver. Compelling work is not driven by a medium, but by an idea.

Having created branding campaigns for clients like Steamboat Ski Resort, Sotheby's International Realty, Montage Hotels & Resorts, and the Globus Travel family of brands, Beckham has a penchant for leisure, real estate and easy elegance. Her thoughts and words have enticed people to travel the world, buy a second home, and even drop $50K for a bracelet on a Tuesday. She is also well versed in healthcare and retail, and experiences an elevated heart rate at the mention of any consumer category.

Beckham thrives on working within the energizing chaos of advertising agencies yet can assemble a team for the smaller advertiser. With a nationwide network of strategists, art directors, designers, digital gurus and photographers, Beckham can offer national quality work at the local level.
