My name is Erik Dagnell and I am an Art Director. DAD/A is my company and my creative platform. It’s a one man communication agency that provide creative work for brands in need of better communication. I have a network of great minds and specialists I can bring in whenever a project needs it.I also freelance as a Senior Creative on the international advertising and design scene. Questions? Let’s talk.
I provide insights, strategies and creative concepts. I execute them, making them come to life and stand out. I believe in moving brands to better places and thereby making them more interesting and more successful. No brief is too small or too big. I adjust and gather the great minds needed for the task in hand. My role is adjustable. I function as: Creative Director, Head of Art, Conceptual Creative, Senior Art Director and Senior Designer.
I offer my services to them in need of better design for their brand. I believe in conceptual design – based in the true DNA of the brand. Design is not just pretty clothes. It’s pretty clothes combined with an awesome personality. With a long experience of designing corporate identities, logotypes, printed material, packaging, websites etc I can and will make your brand better. Period.
During my time in the industry I’ve come across clients who honestly don’t know what they are buying. And I see many brands handle their own communication and production needs rather when having a full service agency at their side. This is where I come in. As a Client Consultant I provide quality control and being the creative authority – standing on the client’s side. In this way you will get the full value of the marketing budget.
In order to evolve and grow as a creative (and as a person) I believe you need to step out of your comfort zone and start doing things you don’t know how to do. With curiosity and lust as the only motivation. I see these projects as a professional (and personal) R&D of sorts. And yes. You can also call it hubris. Stay tuned.
