Austin Steele


I am a Brand & Creative/Art Director with a proven ability to develop creative strategies and solutions. As an enthusiastic multi-position team player, I build and direct successful creative solutions by leading, inspiring, mentoring and collaborating with exceedingly talented people. Doing this for a living sometimes hardly feels like work! I use proven design processes and conceptual development to drive cross-channel alignment for integrated campaigns and brands. My client work includes global corporations, focused primarily towards the action sports industry. My work is applied across mediums, including: technical apparel, product and surface design, digital, print, packaging, e-commerce, signage, trade shows and in-store retail environment graphics. As an accomplished designer and team leader, I maintain hands-on graphic design, art direction, photo art direction, and (when necessary) copy writing skills. I collaborate with creative teams and outside vendors to execute on-message design work that meets marketing objectives based in business strategies. Working in partnership with sales, marketing and brand directors, I present and advocate for effective visual directions, and iterate to final solutions.
