Once upon a time in a land far away, ok Philadelphia, Ethan Gabriel Hunt was born and had no idea of his future in design and advertising. Sure, he was greatly inspired from a young age to become the character Darrin Stevens from “Bewitched,” but he never imagined that his sketching and creative tendencies would never actually become a viable career. His career started in an era where print was king and web was new; but he knew that his career in advertising was headed in the right direction when I was brought in to work on campaigns for Jaguar, Land Rover and DirecTV for firms such as Young & Rubicam and Campbell-Mithun. After 9/11, an unexpected turn in his career path lead to a parallel military career in the United States Coast Guard as one of only seventy-seven national Public Affairs officers responsible for recruitment advertising and public relations. For Ethan, this was quite and adjustment—he thrived nonetheless, considering it to be a chance to broaden his experience.

As Ethan’s career evolved, the shift from print to web has provided him varied experience in art direction, brand management, HTML and Flash design, package and label design, social media, print production and motion design editing. With the industry-shifting growth of web over the years, he has come to learn and apply a knowledge of CSS, XTML to bolster his design when it comes to web—he has been making efforts to better arm himself with HTML5 as to provide both a clean, functional design aesthetic while following the best practices of the web. He is by no means a coder, but a designer—but this is not to say that he will not set aside his love of design and dig into the guts of a page to help code a beautiful end-user experience.

Though he finds it a little strange, he has been said to be meticulous, thoughtful and creatively motivated. However, he will admit to being a strong conceptual, strategically-focused art director adept in creating design solutions that follow the spirit of the creative brief while still being visually stimulating. Ethan loves following and occasionally breaking the ever-powerful design grid. Adobe CS6 is like a family member to him, with Illustrator, Photoshop and Flash being very close siblings. Overall, there is nothing more than he enjoys more than being in a dynamic, creative environment. Read Less
