Aaron Seymour-Anderson — Creative Director

_About

 

Hello

I care immensely — and equally — about solving problems for consumers, putting beautiful and inspirational work into the world, and helping organizations achieve their goals.

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 Creative Director at AKQA in Portland leading projects for Nike. 

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.
