Creative Consultant / Meal Kit Connoisseur

Skillful storyteller. Clever creative. Lover of alliteration.

Through ideas, words, visual narratives and interactive communications, Mercedes Kane crafts content that gets people to react – then act.

As a creative director, writer and documentary filmmaker, Mercedes’ unique understanding of the power of narrative helps her connect with an audience, inform communication strategy and invigorate creative content across the digital landscape, marketing, production, copywriting, and design. Over the years, she’s worked with a long list of incredible clients including McDonald’s, Portillo’s, U.S. Foods, Deborah’s Place, Chicago House, Takeda, Astellas, AbbVie, Bank of America, Governors State University, and more.

A Chicago native, Mercedes studied broadcast journalism at Eastern Illinois University and got her MFA in independent film at Governors State. When she’s not hunched over her MacBook Pro or on a shoot, she’s usually planning a trip, flying by on her bike, or juggling a handmade sign and her small children at a neighborhood march.
