Curran grew up in Spokane Washington studying art and design at a young age; attending private schools and extra curricular art-design programs. After high school Curran attended Western Washington University in Bellingham Washington where he studied Industrial Design. Thereafter, Curran moved to Pasadena California to attend Art Center College of Design to study a new hybridized design profession; Environmental Design. During his 3 years at ACCD, Curran worked on a variety of projects and collaborated with designers, film makers, and artists from around the world. Notably, Curran was selected to assist with the "Sinclair Pavllion", a design for a much needed student lounge on campus. Built before his graduation Curran was exposed to the design-build process first hand.

After exiting ACCD, he contuinted working with Architects Hoggets & Fung on the, 'Ecosystems' exhibit design project located inside the California Science Center at Exposition Park, downtown Los Angeles. Curran continue a number of other projects before leaving in 2003 to pursuit a solo design, consulting, and freelance service.

In 2004 Curran open a design office in Santa Monica with a small group of designers and interns. Projects included Cinch Restaurant, Barefoot Restaurant, the Makanini Residence, and several small hotels & business parks around the country. During this time Curran launched Sketchupmodels.com, a 3d market place that allowed 3d artists world wide to showcase and sell their work online. Additionally, Curran was one of three founding member of Museum Of Traffic, an art organization that produced live audio visual performances.

In 2007 Curran closed his Santa Monica studio and moved to downtown Los Angeles to work closely with local architects and developers to create photorealistic illustrations of their newly developed condo projects. During this time Curran, along with business partner Robert Drysdale, launched 'Lucid Renderings' a start up company servicing architectural illustrations and animations.

As the condo boom slowed, Curran travelled to San Francisco to find new projects and collegeas. In 2008 he was introduced to United Brands and was givein the opportunity to design the retail environment for their prototype store, Miam Miam Yogurt Shop. Curran went on to other design projects and started to focus on a minimal approach to a 'design practice'.

In 2009 Curran had an opportunity to work with Marc Romero at Romero Thorsen Design, were he was formally introduced to Environmental Graphic Design (EDG). Its was a powerful experience that changed him forever. Curran spent the rest of the year assisting RTD on projects at the Dubi Mall, Four Seasons Resorts Hotel and other shopping centers world wide. EDG was the missing piece to his puzzle, after which Curran was able to combine all his talents and training into a cohesive design experience.

Currently, Curran is a freelance designer working a variety of projects around the world. Curran still works with Romero Thorsen Design and continues to develop his skills as a designer using the latest technology and innovation. Read Less
