People Profile - Robert Mack McDougall


Creative Director

“The master in the art of living makes little distinction between work and play, labor and leisure, mind and body, education and recreation, love and religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues a vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”
Lawrence Pearsall Jacks

Mack manages an internal team at Slalom called “the studio.” A rag-tag creative powerhouse of people that push to elevate the Slalom brand and culture. Slalom is great people doing great work for great clients. The studio tries to tell that story every day in an unexpected way.
