My name is Demian Fore. I'm a creative director (art director) who lives in Austin, Texas. Below are a few things you might like to know about me.
After studying architecture at The Cooper Union (NYC) and design, illustration and advertising at The School of Visual Arts (NYC) I received a BS in Advertising from The University of Texas at Austin.
I freelanced in New York City and Austin before starting full time at GSD&M in Austin as an art director.
My wife and I then moved to Los Angeles where I art-directed at J Walter Thompson.
But not long after that Austin called again, and I gladly answered. I rejoined GSD&M as an Associate Creative Director.
Then it was time to blaze my own trail back into the world of freelance.
Over the years I've worked on many great brands including: AT&T, BMW, Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority, Chili’s, Dell, Dial, Fannie Mae, Kohler, Lennox, Norwegian Cruise Line, Pennzoil, SBC, SBC Yellow Pages, Southwest Airlines, United Healthcare, U.S. Air Force, Walgreens and Zales.
I’ve managed many of these accounts while overseeing numerous creative teams. During this time I’ve produced breakthrough, effective and strategic creative across multiple platforms - including web, social, video, print and ooh assets.
And along the way I've picked up some awards and recognition from: The One Show, The Art Directors Club, Clio, Graphis Advertising Annual, Print Regional Design Annual, National Addy, Regional Addy and Local Addy.
When I'm not creative-directing you can catch me playing soccer, spending time with my kids, designing a logo or just enjoying the great outdoors. I'm also perpetually working on writing and illustrating a children's book.
