Sid Guglielmino

Sid has over 30 years of creative experience including working as an Art Director for 14 years at various national and multinational advertising agencies in Melbourne and Brisbane, including Darcy McManus & Masius, Coudrey Advertising, Joint Venture/Mattingly and Chiat Day Mojo.

His advertising experience was woven into his own successful business venture, GDC, commencing in 1993 and in 2010, Sid merged GDC’s long-standing client relationships and a strong creative portfolio forged in Transport, NGOs and Education with Rowland complementing an existing portfolio of infrastructure, mining, corporate and investor relations clients. His role there as Creative Director saw him continue to create strategic and impactful design and advertising campaigns for many national and multinational brands.

Sid is a pioneer of strategic thinking and strong idea generation and his outcomes reflect the depth of relationships he establishes with clients and the creativity he embeds in their business and campaigns.

As of January 2013, Sid continues to operate as a full time creative consultant and enjoys creating effective and memorable work for a variety of local and interstate clients.
