About

I’ve been building meaningful brands with good-humored people through brand design, art direction, and illustration, for more than a decade.

I am passionate about the art + craft of design, and strongly believe in its power to solve real problems. Whether as a solo designer, or growing and leading teams, I’ve spent the majority of my career in the tech industry on in-house brand teams leveraging design & direction to accomplish business goals.

Outside of my professional career, I also enjoy exploring the line between art and design – see my exploratory artwork on Instagram. And when not creating, I enjoy traveling around the world (when possible), and spending time with my loved ones, including my fiancé and black lab in Denver, CO.

Testimonials

I’ve been lucky to work with some amazingly talented folks over the years. Here are a few testimonials from working together.

Brennan is the quintessential asset to a company that has people and culture at the top of their values. Aside from his incredible creative talent and brand design skills, he possesses a leadership style to his team that motivates, inspires, and fosters high-standards across the board. He can own a challenging decision with grace and strategically delegate with ego aside. By far one of the best managers I’ve had the privilege to work under.

Nicole
Creative Director & Lead Designer

Brennan is one of those rare breeds of creatives whose exceptional design skills are equal to his ability to mentor and lead others. A consummate professional, Brennan is super organized and thoughtful about how to manage a team, all without sacrificing genuine care for others in his approach. He’s personally the best manager I’ve ever had and I believe he can lead any team he’s a part of to success.

Naomi
Designer & Illustrator

I get the sense that the best creative team I will ever work on was the one built from the ground up by Brennan, where I had the immense good fortune to work closely with him for four years. Brennan is a truly rare creative: he possesses the raw talent to create a superlative final result, and he also cares deeply about the “why” behind every design challenge. He doesn’t design for design’s sake, but seeks to solve a problem as effectively as possible.
