The program focused on creative direction, art direction, and technical mastery. All of this was done in partnership with design inspiration-theory powerhouse OFFF (which was being hosted in Barcelona at the time).

The program centered on technical mastery of film and video production, preprodution and postproduction with conceptual theory treated as a supplement. My concentration was in Documentary Film/Video.

Director of User Experience/Creative

Liquidus Chicago, IL 2007 to 2010.
I joined Liquidus as they were expanding out of the startup phase of the business. I was hired as a motion graphic designer and later promoted to Director of the User Experience/Creative Department.Specific responsibilities included:

  • Designing print, press, and web materials under deadline.

Freelance Motion Graphic Designer

Chicago, IL 2002 to 2005.
Most design houses at the time didn’t have someone on staff that could produce motion graphic video. For that reason, I was the motionographer hired gun for a number of advertising consulting firms around Chicago. Specific responsibilities included:

  • Creating motion graphic videos for a wide range of corporate clients.
  • Collaborating with the Creative Director at dozens of design houses.

Brandon has a unique combination of skills that make him a critical asset as a team leader. When he left Liquidus to move on to greener pastures in California, two people had to be hired to fill his role. Where will you find someone that is an expert in motion graphics and video advertising that also has deep knowledge of user experience? You probably won’t.
