(ok) Will Hays

Over the past 20+ years I've had the pleasure of working with a variety of people from the largest brands in the world to the smallest start-ups. My first 10 years were spent in Atlanta, which is where I'm from.

In 2007 I moved to Seattle, working for myself until 2013 when I accepted an offer from the ad agency Wexley School for Girls. After Wexley I was hired as the design director for the start-up product company PicoBrew

At PicoBrew I went from being the only 'designer' to building a team of 10+ in-house and contract creatives. It was a tremendous amount of work managing all creative from the digital space including all UI/visual design for the website as well as their new app--  to the physical which included package design, manuals, PB brand, etc. My team and I also managed all creative for marketing and advertising working closely with our sales team as well as additional ad agencies.  On top of all that we raised almost $8 million in only 4 crowd funding campaigns. PicoBrew sharpend my skillset of managing multiple projects on tight timelines with shoe string budgets.

I'm now back to working for myself enjoying the new variety of clients.  With 20+ years in design, creative direction, marketing, advertising, and product sales I bring a range of skills to the table.
