Aaron Seymour-Anderson — Creative Director

About

 
 
Summit of Mt Hood, 2017
 
 

Thank you for stopping by

I work to connect brands and people through stories and experiences.

My background includes time spent in both traditional and digital agencies, on balance with experience on both the strategy and creative sides of things. I currently work as a CD leading teams on Nike at AKQA Portland.

I stumbled into this business through a past life of doing graffiti art. Crafting a message that not everybody wanted to hear — in a place almost no one wanted to see it — taught me many things, but, above all, to respect my audience and hold my work to a very high standard. 

Feel free to contact me here.
