Garrett Braun garrett@furiouscreative.net

Garrett supposedly brings more than 17 years of experience in design and art direction to Furious Creative. This may lead one to believe he is mature and experienced—neither of which are truly the case. Even after we take into account his ability to create savvy, engaging campaigns and his remarkable aptitude for exceeding client expectations, we must face the facts: Garrett likes to take credit for other people’s ideas.

While his vast experience may be his most illustrious invention, one cannot ignore Garrett’s unique and creative perspective. Garrett’s ideas, though few and far between, are undeniably brilliant. His concepts are clever, his artwork, provocative. Though highly conceptual, there is one concept Garrett has never seemed to grasp: personal space. (Trust us on this. You’ll want to steer clear of him on the dance floor.) Prior to starting his own business, Garrett served as senior art director and sole male employee for the Bauserman Group, a Reno-based ad agency. Here he focused on perfecting his ability to interact with female life forms. During his down time, Garrett decided to take a stab at graphic arts, eventually designing the Artown 2008 campaign; the University of Nevada Athletics “Stay True” campaign; the Jones Vargas “Landmark” campaign; Bully’s Sports Bar “Anti-Inspiration” campaign; and the Pre-owned at Lexus of Reno “Sure, I’ve Been Around the Block” campaign.

Garrett claims his past clients include The Howard Hughes Corporation, Hard Rock Hotel, Expedia.com, American Airlines and Haws Corporation. And although we haven’t uncovered testimony refuting said claims, we have no evidence confirming them either.

Garrett wants you to know that throughout his career his innovative ideas and ground-breaking design have earned him many Local and Regional ADDY Awards. Despite a known propensity for boastfulness and grandstanding, this claim actually checks out.

And finally, to answer the inevitable question on everyone’s mind: If Garrett were a fruit, what fruit would he be? Garrett would most certainly be a plum—a sometimes sweet, sometimes sour, slow-to-ripen plum.

 

Roland Adams

Roland’s unique style and creative vision has not only helped businesses differentiate themselves among their competitors for the past nine years, it has also given us insight into how strange and unbridled the mind of an artist can be. Roland believes in bringing sophisticated design and conceptual thinking to every project he undertakes, whether his client is a major national brand or a small local business. His brilliance however, comes at a cost. Talk to any account supervisor he has ever worked with and you’ll learn that Roland’s painstaking attention to detail can be exasperating.

Throughout his career, Roland has worked both independently as a freelance designer as well as full-time for large ad agencies. Before joining Furious Creative, Roland was a senior art director for Bradley Reid + Associates, an Anchorage-based ad agency, where he designed everything from annual reports for Alaska’s Permanent Fund Corporation to newsletters for Doyon, Limited Native Corporation to logos for the Alaska Cruise Association. He also worked on campaigns that featured a talking, animatronic snow goose. He swears it wasn’t his idea, but this isn’t the first time his credibility has been called into question, and it most likely won’t be the last.

In 2007, Roland was recognized for his work on The Truth Report which received the Aurora Award in Marketing Communications. Roland holds a degree in graphic design from the Art Institute of Seattle. It was during his time here that Roland realized Alaskan weather perhaps wasn’t so bad.

When not creating something beautiful and profound on his Mac, Roland can be found taking photographs of the Last Frontier, camping out overnight for the latest iPhone, enjoying regional delicacies like reindeer sausage and muk tuk, and cruising the streets of Anchorage wearing obscenely pricey jeans.
