Arthur was responsible for co-creating the Max Headroom campaign for Coca-Cola (1985), the Saturn “Launch” campaign that introduced the Saturn car, as well as work for Levi’s, BMW, and many more. His work in video production includes collaborations with Apple, Mozilla and others.

More recently, Arthur has been interested in working with people 40 and older who are dealing with the realities of aging in a culture that doesn’t really seem to know what to do with them. His message is simple: you are the author of your own life story – don’t let cultural expectations or the opinions of others push you into a life you don’t want to live.
