“Pumpkin A. Turtle” Has 4 years experience and is looking for a new role as a Creative Director in Chicago, IL.

I am a visual communicator with a varied range of experience spanning over a quarter of a century. From print to web, with some stops in game development, I have contributed to projects as small as designing record sleeves for indie record labels to designing web sites for Fortune 500 companies. In the last few jobs I've had I've taken on the role of creative lead and would like to continue to mentor other creatives and inspire them to develop work that surpasses expectations. How is this done? By having an insatiable interest in Cinema, Art, Photography, Video Games, Pop Culture and whatever else is visually arresting.

Ideal Company

Ideally I'd like to work at a place that isn't so big that it no longer sees the employees as people who contribute to the success of the company. Fostering creativity and providing the support needed to deliver great work shouldn't only be the responsibility of upper management, but of everyone who contributes to the well-being of the company.
