Profile

Shane Horn - Designer, Art Director, and Creative. 

I'm a multi-disciplined, curious, and enthusiastic creative, who's obsessively online
Passionate about great ideas, great storytelling, and great craft.

Over the last 12 years, I have worked for a 
range of creative businesses, from large advertising networks to smaller independent agencies. Working with brands big and small - from finance to beauty.

A thinker, and do-er – I provide creative strategy, conceptual thinking, art direction, and design direction, across a mix of campaign, brand, visual identity, digital, content, and social-first briefs.

A keen problem solver, with good vibes, I thrive in using my skills, infectious energy, and give-a-shit attitude to get the best out of my team and any brief that's thrown my way.

I also believe in good leadership and pride myself on being an empathetic and hands-on creative leader. And lecture at Norwich University of Arts, helping the next generation of designers.
