Overview

Zack here, LETS CREATE!!! You have an idea? I guarantee that I have a visual solution for you. I am an illustrator first and foremost, and a designer in a close second. I have been working in a corporate level at Universal Music Group, creating original illustrations, logos, album packing designs and visual branding campaigns for such artists as Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Kanye West, The Killers, Ariana Grande, Aviici, 3 Doors Down and more. As well as freelancing in my personal time. I am an artist with a full spectrum of styles who is always open to take on a creative project! Style? what style do you need? I can adapt and develop whatever is needed and appropriate for the project at hand. My predominate medium is digital, but will always enjoy my watercolors and ink. Collaborating with other innovative souls is always a treat and great chance to grow and learn.
