Stories told. Problems solved.

Why embryo?

We don’t sell. We story tell.

In a content driven world, video has the power to connect people to a cause, campaign or message. But making genuine connections that spark action is where the power of video lies.

At Embryo, we don’t sell. We story tell. We don’t just deliver a message, we deliver an anthem…one that weaves your rational and emotional story into a lasting impression and inspires action.

Embryo always brings energy, creativity and flexibility.

Our Team

Our Team

Who is Embryo Creative? We’re storytellers that studied advertising, marketers who worked in journalism, filmmakers who draw, writers that paint, musicians who sell, math nerds and sports freaks. We’re a little bundle of creative contradictions with a purpose: bring the awesome in everything we do.

The founding partners met in 2005 while earning their Masters in Advertising at Boston University. They launched the firm in 2007.

Embryo produces integrated campaigns that yield results.

Our team

Ryan Ferland
Partner + Chief Creative Officer

Adores awesomely-bad zombie films. You might call him the jack-of-all-trades for creative—we call him Ryan. Or the “darkness.” A native Floridian, he dislikes the beach and all things summer. Often very serious, panda bears melt his heart. Master’s in advertising from BU.

Stephanie Jeskey
Partner + CEO

Resident foodie. Red Sox fanatic, yet married to a man that dislikes professional sports. Attended 2013’s Game 6 World Series. Willing to try anything once—next up, surfing in Costa Rica. Master’s in advertising from BU. Governs the day-to-day operations.

Allan Shinohara
Partner + Chief Creative Officer

Has a movie collection that would rival any video store that is still open (if there is one). Prefers real talk—no BRB, LOL, ROFL to be echoed. Can recite the entire West Side Story musical. Master’s in advertising from BU. Completes the dynamic duo that is the senior creative team.
