Daniel Curran

I’m an interactive art director with a passion for developing strong creative strategies in service of authentically communicating a story.

I believe that good design requires discipline and that creativity is a process involving imagination, discovery, and iteration. I have a multifaceted expertise within art direction, responsive web strategy, photography, and film production. If you’d like to work together, please contact me with information about your project.
