We’re very excited to announce that we have hired a new creative director to join the Brand Advance team.  Here are some details from a recent press release:

ORLANDO, Fla. (July 2, 2010) – Rich Johnson, an award-winning artist who has distinguished himself as an innovator in design, photography and video, has been named creative director for Orlando-based Brand Advance LLC.

Brand Advance – an Interactive marketing agency specializing in SEO, Social Media and Marketing Staffing is headed up by Chief Executive Officer David Brim – is based in Orlando on East Colonial Drive.

Johnson, a 2002 graduate of Full Sail University in Winter Park, spent the past 10 years honing artistic skills that have evolved to include all areas of design: print, web, film, photography, and graphic art.

He also has been recognized for his work with Claymation, Lego animation, print and digital design, and has won numerous national and international awards for visual arts, including first-place for Lego Animation 2000 and Only in Your Imagination Clay Animation 2000.

    A creative director is ultimately responsible for the quality of the final creative work. They are often praised highly when their team’s efforts win awards, but conversely, the creative director shoulders the negativity when a project goes wrong, response falls short of expectations, or an important individual dislikes the idea.

    A creative director is usually a game designer responsible for the design, vision and direction of the product. Usually they manage a team of programmers and graphic designers but depending on the size of the team they may also be involved in the programming and/or graphics development.

    I was just reading a fairly good essay on BioShock by this guy yesterday. He seems to have a real interest in legitimizing games as an artistic and narrative form. I’ll be interested to see what he does.
