As an experienced Art Director/Graphic Designer for over 35 years, I've had the opportunity to work on just about every type of account. That's what makes this business so great. Learning about a lot of different businesses. I've never flipped burgers or made pizzas for a living, but I've helped build international fast food brands like Papa John's Pizza and Rally's Hamburgers.
