My name is Justin Ware and I am an award winning art director with over fifteen years of industry experience. My mission is to create work that stands out in an over communicated world. For six years I was a Senior Partner and Cofounder of Latenight Creative, LLC, a full service design studio located in Cary, NC. For the past three and a half years I have been serving as Senior Designer at Clean Design in Raleigh, NC, representing a full range of clients including, John Deere, Lenovo, The Raleigh Chamber of Commerce and UNC Kenan Flagler Business School. I've helped them grow new markets, launch new products and services, and expand their brand messages.
What can I do for you? Well, to start, I am extremely well organized and team-oriented which has enabled me to successfully coordinate multiple projects simultaneously. I have worked in capacities where I have developed teams and projects of various scales and challenges. As a senior creative, I have worked in every phase of management and operations, such as formulating quotes and assisting the sales team in client presentations, as well as overseeing every phase of design and production. I approach every project with excitement, to produce the most effective solution.
My ability to execute broadcast, interactive and print projects from concept to completion is a direct result of my dedicated approach to fully understand all particular aspects of my field. I understand the demands of the industry, and I create solutions that will rise above the clutter. I have the experience, creativity, and commitment to deliver one of a kind creative solutions, all while keeping one ear to the street.
