Design Director In The Branding And Advertising Industry

I have spent the majority of my professional career in the branding and advertising industry, working for top agencies (and independently) on renowned brands, which has been amazing... but six years ago, I discovered crypto and jumped straight in. Since then, I have gained a deep understanding of the industry, technology, DeFi, metaverse, NFTs, trading, market cycles and the crypto space as a whole.

I am now seeking to combine both of my passions and take on a creative role in web3. I believe it is the future and I want to have a hand in building it. I would love to be able to make a difference in this way and dedicate all my professional time to furthering the crypto space. Even though I haven’t worked in the design aspect of web3 before, I likely have more knowledge of the crypto landscape than the majority of Art Directors and designers out there. I believe the skills I have acquired over my varied advertising / branding / design career and in playing the crypto markets for the past 6 years are transferable, relevant and valuable.

What I can bring to an existing team...

- I have over 10 years of experience creating a brand from scratch and bringing small and large projects to completion.
- I have over 7 years of experience managing diverse teams, working to deadlines and delivering top quality work.
- I have been working remotely for over 7 years, so am driven and self motivated.
- My standards are incredibly high and I have great organisational and time management skills.
- I have excellent problem solving skills and a creative mind.
- I have a vast understanding of the crypto landscape due to my 6 years of getting heavily involved and learning all I can.
- I am great at managing resources and sticking to budgets.
- I have successfully worked in every design discipline (advertising, corporate branding, packaging, events, social & web2).
- I am proficient in mostly all design software.
- If there is anywhere I am lacking, I have the ability to learn quickly on the job and in my spare time.
- I am honest and ethical.
