Daniel Swanick Résumé

A concept driven, smart thinking, multitasking, highly experienced Art Director. I have nearly a decade of experience creating digital and traditional integrated marketing campaigns from concept to final design. I approach every project from a strategic level and deliver engaging, conceptually driven ideas. I’ve had the pleasure of working on a variety of different brands, both large and small; from retail to food, home improvement and tourism, to health and financial.

I’ve worked along side copywriters, planners, illustrators and photographers, and led creative-teams, designers and developers. My tools of choice are pen and paper, but I can make a mouse and monitor sing too. I also have the ability to stay calm under pressure and work quickly to adapt to multiple client needs, including working in different styles.
