Dear Art Producer, Anya Mills and the Importance of Relationships and Resourcefulness

On this week’s episode Heather is joined by Content and Art Services Director at The Martin Agency, Anya Mills, who has been producing for over 30 years after starting her career as a creative in Tokyo. Moving from New York city to Richmond, Virginia in 2001, she spent 10 or so years at the Martin Agency and then took a leap to the client side where she produced a proprietary typeface and started their production and photo department. She recently returned happily to Martin diving back into the role of art buying and art production.

In their conversation, Heather and Anya explore the importance of relationships, challenges faced during the pandemic, and how Anya brings her experience as a creative to the role of producer.

“There's just so much wonder in those unpredictable moments or those moments where your guard is down and you might capture something that is truly important.” -Anya Mills
