Hello hello, Shawn Merz here. I’m a creative director. With art from UCLA, typography from Switzerland, fashion from the Netherlands, and production from Hollywood, I know what clients want.
A jaguar e-type hanging over a starlet’s head on a helipad with a backdrop of LA–no problem. A two minute PSA featuring horses, dogs, chickens, and celebrities ranging from Martha Stewart to 50 cent–you got it. A design system that mimics brutalist German aesthetic–easy. Documenting the last active silk reeler on the border of Turkey and war torn Syria–let’s do it.
I’m here to innovate, execute, and deliver. Take a look at my portfolio and feel free to reach out.
