Dan Case

I help clients create thoughtful, meaningful, and effective creative output.

I have 15 years of experience in the advertising industry as an art director and have lead clients and teams in creating compelling work.

With a master's degree in advertising and art direction from one of the best advertising schools in the country, I have worked for world class agencies and brands. I have experience in many different types of industries and have lead brands such as GameStop, Sears, ESPN, The Salvation Army, Fiat, and UCHealth.

My career has taken me all the way from being a Jr. Art Director to an Executive Creative Director in charge of leading the overall creative approach of an agency.

I'm responsible and professional and can help you solve problems and create branding and advertising that is both creative and strategic.
