Brian wears his love for design on his sleeve (the same one that covers his funky tattoos).
He began his design career in the city that never sleeps, spending four years as a designer at JCrew and Adventure House. But the web was calling and Brian answered, leaving New York for an art director job at Labwerks Interactive in Pittsburgh. There, Brian produced graphic and dynamic work for clients such as Dell, American Eagle Outfitters and Bluenotes Jeans.
Before joining Smith Brothers, Brian was creative director at Ripple Effects Interactive, where he was responsible for the creative direction on big brands, including GlaxoSmithKline, Mellon Financial and W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery. He has also worked with several prominent tourism and cultural clients, like the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, the Pennsylvania Tourism Office, the San Antonio Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance, Philadelphia Hotel Association, Carnegie Mellon University and Vanderbilt University.
With Brian steering the creative, the Pennsylvania Tourism Office won numerous awards including a “Best of Show” in the Philadelphia Addy’s, Clio Awards, NAGC Gold Screen Awards, TIA Odyssey Awards, the Webby’s and more.
Brian holds a BS in Graphic Design from LaRoche College.Follow @designcrush72
