Dudes, not divas.

Andy Candelaria and Jim Chase have been fighting for great creative and smart advertising since the last of the Mad Men were clinging to their expense accounts and three-martini lunches.
As the go-to creative team at the Los Angeles office of global ad giant, Grey Advertising, Andy and Jim were responsible for some of the agency’s most memorably effective and award winning campaigns – not to mention a few legendary lunches of their own. But that’s another story.
Now, after many successful years working independently for a remarkably diverse and impressive list of their own clients, the guys have once again joined creative forces to bring their ridiculously far-reaching experience and insight to Old Dudes Advertising.

Stu Hardman – Client Services Director


Another decorated veteran (some would say “survivor”) of the ad agency trenches, Stu Hardman has world-class experience with several of the most renowned agencies, including Chiat Day, Havas/Dentsu/Marsteller and Grey Worldwide. Stu was even asked to initiate, develop and execute an entirely new branding and marketing campaign for the prestigious Pepperdine University — an effort whose success and longevity far exceeded everyone’s expectations.

Today as the official suit (some would say “adult”) of the Old Dudes entourage, Stu brings a welcome level of calm and effective leadership to the Dudes’ team. To discuss marketing strategies and opportunities, email Stu directly at stu@olddudesadvertising.com
