Ian Mgebroff

Art Director

Dallas, TX, USA
I am an honor graduate and Outstanding Portfolio award winner from the Art Institute of Dallas, where I received a BFA in graphic design, after studying art history and journalism at TCU. I have acquired a diverse range of knowledge and skills over the years after trying my hand at everything from playing in bands to editorial writing to working on a cattle ranch. However, my true passion in life has always been design.
