Ivan Chermayeff, brand design pioneer, to Gaspar Guerra, graphic design student. Year 2000
"Because I can draw it, I can make it happen" Has been my professional motto ever since Mr. Chermayeff graced me with his words. Whether it's directing and producing films and events, bringing to life cross media campaigns, developing immersive experiences and web campaigns, heading an international rebranding, or creating video, packaging and illustrations for a broad array of brands in the music industry, I always do my best to bring a passionate, imaginative and rigorous approach to any project and deliver results that break out of the clutter.
In my 15+ years in the industry I've developed work as freelancer or staff for agencies as prestigious as Ogilvy, McCann, Leo Burnett, Lowe and many others. Parallel to my agency work I've done design and video work for the music industry since my school days. From 2007 to 2014 I worked at New York based, independent agency LeadDog Marketing group where I evolved from a designer position to ultimately become the agency's creative lead.
