About Chris Michalik
Art Director & Graphic Designer
With over 15 years both at agencies and in-house, my experience covers a variety of industries, including sports, entertainment, real estate, technology, education, finance, retail goods, travel & tourism, healthcare, and non-profit. I have worked in a broad set of design mediums—branding, identities, logos, print, digital, social media, events, motion, and photography. My greatest strength is tying these pieces together into comprehensive campaigns and brands.
Collaboration among creative teams—account managers, project managers, copywriters, strategists, developers, photographers, and art/creative directors—is essential to the design process I follow. I thoroughly enjoy being involved in creative projects from concept to implementation, ensuring met timelines and consistent brand standards. As both a designer and an art director, I am comfortable pitching concepts to clients and working with them on changes, feedback, and keeping projects in motion.
When leading teams of designers, content creators, copywriters, photographers, and videographers, ensuring the deliverables are implemented and adhering to the creative direction laid out in briefs is essential. I feel it's important to establish processes, guidelines, and culture to aid in efficiency and attention to detail.
