Showcase & Discover Creative Work

bil Chamberlin

Senior Art Director

New York, NY, USA
As an Art Director I am inspired everyday by the world around us. News in art, science,
nature and society fuel my passion to create innovative concepts. Always having a
sketchbook handy I jot down notes and drawings, wherever I am and later translate that into creative designs, concepts and animations that challenge the boundaries of the status quo.
