Hello I am a freelance graphic designer located in Oklahoma City.
My name is Chad and I am passionate about the strategy of advertising through design. I’ve completed well over 5000 projects, collaborated with hundreds of customers, and teamed up with some of OKC’s best marketing experts. With each project, I’ve honed my skills to deliver creative campaigns that don’t just get attention, but drive revenues as well.
My entrance into advertising began in 1994 as an entry-level graphic designer for Southwestern Bell Yellow Pages. From there, I landed a sweet gig at a la mode, a software development company in Edmond. I hung my hat there for two years and was able to orchestrate effective, international advertising campaigns. Daily tasks included: branding, product packaging, software manual design, presentation packets, direct mail campaigns, and trade show booth design projects.
My next big career challenge was landing an art director position at Designworks, a full-service agency. That position included managing a creative team on accounts including: Sonic industries, local hospitals, and a spectrum of prized OKC corporate accounts. Juggling customer accounts while producing award winning campaigns became routine. It was at this point in my career I decided to take the leap and fly solo.
Over the last two decades, I’ve teamed up with many ad agencies, public relations firms, and marketing consultants on a vast variety of projects. I value collaborating with entrepreneurs and other marketing experts to expand my knowledge and learn new avenues for growth. Within that mindset, I’ve grown to understand many views of success through advertising strategies. This keeps me passionate about what I do.
The Short and Personal Bio: My oldest daughter entered college last year and I have a teenage son who loves photography and web design. I was born in Purcell, Oklahoma and grew up in Seminole, Oklahoma. Oklahoma City has been my home base now for the last two decades. I enjoy statistical data, factual documentaries, science and design in all formats. I am an open-minded thinker and always gravitate towards a great creative challenge.
