About

My story:
My name is Anthony Hurd, I am a Artist, and Concept Designer  living in Austin Texas (currently). My goals are really simple these days. Do good work with good people.

My primary focus over those years has been conceptual designs across all media. From story boards, all things interactive to branding and everything in between. I am always pushing myself to explore all design venues and perspectives and thrive on finding the balance between experimental and approachable. Working within the confines of an existing brand and pushing the boundaries when asked to. I am comfortable and proactive on all fronts, Storyboarding, Art Direction, Conceptualization, Branding / Rebranding, Typography, Interactive and Broadcast design, and over all design support.

After 8 years or primarily being focused on storyboards for television and commercial industry I spent the last year in a largely brand focused studio with great people. This position helped me to cultivate a wider scale of understand how a brands material stretch the over all length of multiple mediums. From development of the initial marks to it's full extension across all platforms I'm at my best in the conceptual phase. A spot where I can truly help set the tone of the over all direction of the brand or experience.

A few design studios and agencies I have worked with over the years: Super Fad, Razorfish/Avenue A., Royale, Creative Tonic, Salt LA, Big Fish, Magnetic Creative, Makine, Park and CO, Monkey Head, Scholar, Troika, ZAAZ, Goodby Silverstein and Partners, FX Networks, Digital Kitchen, And Company, Roger, Mocean, Cox Digital, Buster, POP, PDI, Tool, Nathaniel James, Loyal Kaspar, Oishee Creative, Perception, Stardust, and Exopolis.

Now being back at freelancing I am looking forward to collaborating with new people and seeing where these additionally developed skills lead.


Experience:
Previously I was the ECD at Creative Tonic in Austin TX, I freelanced from 2006 to 2014 for numerous studios, agencies and direct clients, and prior to that I was a co-owner and VP of creative at two different studios, E.G.G. (2004-2006), and Exopolis (2002-2004). Going way back I was the lead web design at the launch of G4tv, and a Sr. Art Director at 65media and DNA Studios (waayyyy back in the day. haha).


Services:
Consulting, Concept development and Design, Broadcast Design and Storyboards, Branding and mark exploration, Interactive UI/UX Concept and Design and general Art Direction and Illustration work.
