There's a million people out there with the Adobe Creative Suite who've taken some online tutorials.
While I'm proud of my design chops and experience, I'm arguably more proud of the relationships I've built along the way and continue to develop with every new project.
Here's what some of them have had to say about me:
Eric Fulford, Ballast
I love working with Aaron because no matter which of his roles he's working with me as, he's always coming in with his Director, Writer, Graphics and Creative Director brains, thinking in and around the challenge at hand. Together, we've been able to make groundbreaking, award-winning content that I simply would not have been able to make without someone as multi-faceted as he is. He also makes a mean chimichurri which-- I have to tell you-- really matters when you hit those late-night deadlines.
CEO, All Together Now & Broadway Unlocked
Aaron consistently put out top-tier assets, to the point it became problematic when incorporating designs from less experienced designers.
He single-handedly took on Creative Direction at Aspiration and is an excellent copywriter to match. His deep understanding of the audience is what helped Aaron stand out the most compared to any other designer I've worked with.
Social Media Director, Aspiration
Having worked with Aaron for over a decade, words can't describe the excitement I feel when I jump into a project with him. His work is thoughtful, and even better, he's a joy to crawl into that creative foxhole with. He is a true creative partner - someone you can hand over a simple idea and receive an entirely conceived piece of art in return. To "highly recommend" working with him is an understatement. In fact, as I type this, I realize this quote may directly lead to him getting work with other clients, therefore losing time with him....
Sh*t... I mean, he's pretty great.
Commerical Director, Logan&Dave
I’ve had the privilege of working with Aaron for over a decade. It’s been amazing to see his expertise and unique style evolve across many areas. He’s one of very few artists that can wear “all the hats” equally well. From design and animation to art direction and concept writing, he is always at the top of our list.
Owner, Creative Director at Ballast
I’ve worked with Aaron on multiple projects over the past few years and his work is impeccable. His talent and ability to translate my conceptual idea into a practical design or application, is second to none. It’s very rare to run across a truly talented designer, and Aaron ranks among the very best I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.
Director / Producer, The Neighbor, Into the Ashes
