AboutMe.jpg
 

Hi. I'm Brian Tafel, a creative director and designer from Brooklyn. I have a healthy obsession with the visual world, be that a beautifully made object, or a carefully crafted brand image. I've always believed that people can tell when something is made with care and with their time in mind. And, cliché as it is, I believe anything worth doing is worth doing well.

My creative philosophy is pretty simple. I believe good creative relies on relevance. In order to break through we have to be part of the right conversation, in the right channel at the right time. Whether that’s a TV spot, an app, social media campaign or something else entirely. We have to fish where the fish are.

When I'm not working, I have a borderline unhealthy obsession with skiing, surfing, heirloom tomatoes and dogs…because dogs are the fucking best.
