Rob Christianson Creative

Freelance Art Director

As a senior creative leader looking for my next opportunity, I have 20 years experience as a creative director, art director, editor, visual designer and illustrator. I'm skilled in branding, digital marketing, design, illustration, typography, Web, mobile, print, event design, animation, identity/logo design and infographics.

I've published a children's book, illustrated a business book and fully produced an animated music video. I've managed video production from script and storyboard to on-set direction and post production. I rock Photoshop, Illustrator, inDesign, After Effects, Keynote and yes, even Powerpoint. HARD.

In my next role, I'm looking for Creative Director roles as well as ACD and Art Director opportunities. I'm an active brand influencer on Social Media and would love to explore that area of Art Direction as well. I'm a fun coworker, I highly value company culture, I detest red tape and I'm a brand champion.

And I'm available now. Let's chat. 253.217.2032
