Spire’s Senior Designer Brendan Callahan has been named by Ad 2 Dallas to the prestigious 32 Under 32 list. The class of 2021 was honored at an in-person gala at the Vouv Meeting and Event Space on Thursday, November 4.

Ad 2 Dallas is an affiliate of AAF Dallas for advertising professionals who are 32 years of age or younger. The organization is focused on meeting the needs of Big D’s young advertising, marketing, and communications professionals and students, while being the largest award-winning AD 2 chapter in the nation.


The 32 Under 32 award began locally in 2017 to recognize young professionals in our industry who make a real difference early in their careers. Callahan joins the fifth class of professionals, and is the first Spire employee to make the prestigious list.

Brendan joined the agency in November 2019 from Fossil, and went on to become the most- awarded designer over the last year at Texas’ most-awarded agency. He approaches every day and every project (and every timeline) with a positive energy, can-do attitude, and a problem-solving spirit that every account exec dreams of. Furthermore, Brendan is more than just a designer—he goes above and beyond to deliver high-quality, strategy-driven creative for all clients. Brendan is proof that you can have creative integrity and still be a great teammate.

Since joining Spire, Brendan has already amassed 12 industry awards and recognitions, including AAF ADDYs, Hermes, and Packaging of the World. And, most recently, his creative was named the inaugural Marketer of the Year from the DFW American Marketing Association for both Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion marketing, as well as Best Overall B2B Branding.

“Spire has received more awards and recognition this year than any other year in our company history,” said Kimberly Tyner, partner and chief creative officer at Spire. “Brendan is a driving force behind our agency’s creative reputation in the B2B space and our ability to generate true business results.”

Brendan is a rostered member of Ad 2 Dallas, and recently received UX/UI certification from Southern Methodist University.
