Hi, I'm Brandon

Typenerd • Photo-Taker • Coffee Drinker

I’m a detailed-oriented type nerd, that designs with strategy in mind.

Hailing from Boston, MA, design and photography have been my passion for as long as I can remember. High school was when I obtained the basic knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite and how to use it – also, made a lot of local concert flies and brochures for local businesses. In university, I sharpened these skills. While studying advertising, I also was a lead art director in my university AdTeam, which happened to take 1st place in the National Student Advertising Competition in 2017 held in New Orleans, LA.

In 2018, I joined Tillett Collective – a photo studio and family. We are a community of photographers that shoot anything and everything your business may need. We are equipped with the highest quality of studio Profoto lighting, a variety of solid-color backdrops, including a hand-made flower wall, and meeting/lounge area.

Currently, I am the Associate Art Director for Providence Media, a local advertising and publication agency based out of Providence, RI. We strive to be the best local publications that report on everything Rhode Island. Our advertising has helped many local business flourish in their areas.
