I founded Bakken Creative Co. in 1999, a branding agency that has been highly recognized in its industry. My previous experience includes working as an Art Director, Senior Art Director and Associate Creative Director for Doner in Detroit, Gams Chicago and Draft Worldwide/Chicago. I’ve received several hundred branding and advertising awards and my work has been featured in many advertising and design publications. Today, I contract with ad agencies and design shops to bring my experience and passion to their team, projects and clients. I also work with companies to define and build their brand and to create a visual presence across all mediums that resonates with the company's key qualities and connects them with their target audience.
