Eric Pilhofer

VP Creative

To describe Eric without using the word “creative” would be like singing a song without the melody.

So why is he like that? It probably has something to do with growing up the son of a popular jazz musician. It was only natural for Eric to start his eclectic career life in the 1980s as a music producer at Sound80, a Minneapolis-based audio studio that produced the first digital recording, ever.

From there, he opened his own business where he penned original music and sound scores. After working with huge brands like Audi, Lee Jeans, Coke, etc. throughout the 1990s, Eric decided it was time to channel his creativity into another form.

That’s when his art studio, Pilhoferwerks, was born. The keyboard whiz proved he not only produced catchy music, he could craft completely inspiring ceramic sculptures, which he’s been creating for the last two decades.

…and that brings us to Marketing Architects.

Eric’s role at Marketing Architects is a lot like one of his art forms – he’s expertly molded it into something that highlights the very best of his skills. Like building the bones of the company’s Audio Department, as well as the TV production facility.

Nowadays, you’ll find Eric leading TV campaigns as the V.P. of Creative Solutions. And when he’s not sprinkling his creative magic on the company’s newest innovations, you’ll probably see Eric pedaling around Minnetonka, peacefully contemplating the Next Big Thing.
