Chad and his daughters

This Is Me

In third person of course: This misfit of marketing started freelancing websites nearly 16 years ago and then slinging print ads for a newspaper publisher (and later won an award for his work). Over the years, a series of seemingly random events led Chad into the agency world where his versatile skillset and experience led him from business development to designer and then director of client relations.

Chad has coordinated, managed and fulfilled creative projects for clients of all sizes across multiple disciplines including logo creation, print design, website design & strategy, advertising campaigns [conception, design, and implementation], brand & marketing strategy, copy and content creation, and even signage and trade show displays.

Not a fan of the “behind the desk” approach to creative direction, this blue collar creative likes to get his hands dirty. Chad has trimmed and cut substrates for sign production, weeded, masked and applied die-cut vinyl, pored over paper samples, operated large digital presses, cut down press flats to finished print pieces, and even sorted and bundled direct mail pieces to strict USPS standards.

When he still had free time, before becoming a father – Chad dabbled in music production, releasing an album in 2007. His first short stories were punched out on the family typewriter and are now a source of entertainment for his oldest daughter. He did release a new book in 2013 titled Arrow in the Armor and is a collection of wordplay not eloquent enough to be called poetry. He is an avid foodie on a quest to find the nation’s best patty melts and whiskeys. You can hire him over at www.originbrothers.com.

ideas, ideals and a passion for (almost) all things creative
