John Fries

For more than three decades, I've been leading innovative marketing and communications initiatives, producing compelling creative, and earning a reputation for delivering results.

Whether developing innovative marketing, PR, advertising, or branded content strategy or writing, designing and producing materials, media and campaigns that break through marketplace clutter, engage audiences and elicit response, I bring my A-game to every engagement.

A journalist, copywriter, graphic designer,filmmaker, and digital content creator, I've held communications leadership positions at several major organizations (UPMC Passavant, UPMC Shadyside and The Frick PIttsburgh among them) and helped clients of all sizes and types tell their stories to audiences that matter.

I've written for television, film and radio; authored four ebooks; co-authored a memoir with an elite runner and U.S. Olympics hopeful; written more than a dozen long-form articles on LinkedIn; and maintain a blog about film and television.

My design work ranges from logos to comprehensive identity systems, and from print colleteral and publications to websites and a wide and diverse variety of digital initiatives.

As a filmmaker, I produce all types of projects. In 2017 I established Blue Myst Films, an independent production and branded content company.
