Chris D’Acunto is an award-winning art director & designer currently working in New York City. He's also an insanely nice guy, who was raised on a farmhouse in Connecticut so he knows how to chop wood and live without cable. He grew up with a fine art and design background which resulted in many discussions about creativity while eating ravioli on a Tuesday night.
For the past 10 years he’s concepted all things advertising and collaborated, art directed, designed, and worked with designers and copywriters on print, social, digital, mobile, POS, collateral, those super large full 360-campaigns, website design, UX design, logo design, branding, and good old fashioned billboards.
And yes he’s also one of those AD’S who knows the ins and outs of CS.
By CS he mean Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and After Effects.
