Hi, I'm Eric Ravenstein

A Chicago based Integrated Creative Director

I’m a Chicago based Integrated Creative Director with over 20 years of experience providing creative leadership, mentorship and telling engaging brand stories to tech savvy audiences.

I began my career with Carlos Segura after graduating from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I was immeresed in typography and communication design—and honed my leadership and art direction with guidance from one of the best. That was my stepping off point into advertising and brand stewardship at a time when interactive, digital, and social were coming of age.

I like to live in a space between smart design, engaging experiences, and telling memorable stories about brands. I have worked on brand development, front end design, new business pitches, product and app design, UI/UX, interactive brand promotions, customer relationship programs, loyalty engagement, QSR children's programs, above the line TV, print and web campaigns, social engagement strategies, shopper marketing, and experiential design.

I love this stuff.
