Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Jaythan Elam

Senior Art Director

Burke, VA, USA
I am a results-driven professional with multi-industry experience and a history of product and design development. I am a strong design leader with an adept visual understanding of intricate branding systems. I have strong qualifications in eCommerce, social marketing and product development in both start-up and large corporate environments. I have expert knowledge of Adobe Design software, Mac OS environments, web development software, and I am just as comfortable designing for print as I am for the web. I am a passionate highly creative problem solver with a craving for expanding my knowledge about industries and technologies. And my aesthetic reveals a love for all things typographic, clean and clever, thought provoking design solutions.
