Hi. My name is Chad. I’ve spent 10 years creating incredible graphic design work. I’ve worked with small independent companies, national firms, and even internationally MET Studio in London, England. Regardless of size, scale or geographic location, I know how to connect with a company’s mission and communicate a message that’s heard.

Currently I am an Interactive Designer for Direct Digital LLC. I create graphics for emails, product landing pages, packaging and labels. I work with programers to ensure all graphics are to their needs. Direct Digital LLC is the maker of Nugenix®, Instaflex®, Beneflex®, Lumiday®, Luminite® and Slim Science™.

[Also] I am a Graphic Design Adjunct Instructor for the International Academy of Design & Technology Online. Teaching keeps my finger on the pulse of the design industry, and allows me to invest in the new generation of designers. It’s a win-win as far as I’m concerned.

From 2011-2013 I was the Lead Graphic Designer at ISS Research, a sports nutrition company located in Charlotte, NC. I manage the development of the OhYeah! Nutrition brand, including social media, packaging/label design, marketing materials, print ads, web banners, retail display signage, MLB signage, and event graphics.

I worked at MET Studio in London, England from 2007-2010 as a Senior Graphic Designer. I created environmental graphics, way-finding, directional signage, icons, branding, brochures, packaging, web and publication ads. Check out my international work here. www.metstudio.com

I enjoy learning about screen-printing, art and cultures. I have also volunteered my services to design the program cover and ads for The Tampa International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival.
