EXPERIENCE

Tanner is a creative leader whose diverse background allows him to move between mediums and holistically approach each challenge. He is versed in design, social, digital, programming, photography and video and excels at bringing to life multi-disciplinary strategies.

Creative Director @ Ayzenberg Group
Pasadena, CA // April 2013 – Current
My time at Ayzenberg has been fast paced accompanied by fast growth where I’ve had the opportunity to lead multi-channel creative on brands such as Xbox, Surface, Microsoft Store, Windows, HoloLens and Reebok. As an Creative Director, I manage a team of art directors, designers, photographers, copywriters and illustrators while working closely with strategists overseeing a range of work from daily content to campaign-level ideas. This opportunity has put me in close contact with clients, which is a relationship I enjoy building through open communication, quality work and collaboration.

Artist / Designer @ tannerteale
Los Angeles, CA // September 2005 – Current
My personal practice has gone though several iterations. It began as a freelance graphic design business, working with chefs, small business owners and bands, while more recently partnering with companies such as Aperol and Skyy Vodka. In parallel to commercial work, my personal practice functions an art space that views design as a medium agnostic process. This freedom allows me to engage areas of art and design outside of commercial bounds, which ultimately feeds back into my applied arts pursuits.

Art Director @ The Levinson Tractenberg Group
New York City, NY // January 2010 – October 2010
The experience of working with second-wave New York City ad men was my introduction to advertising. Coming from the world of interactive and graphic design it was a welcomed opportunity to learn a new facet off the industry. With efforts in the fields of print, digital and TV, I was able to hone my skills around art and copy, leveraging them as a direct connection to consumers.

Graphic Designer @ Fuse Interactive
Laguna Beach, CA // January 2008 – July 2009
Fuse Interactive was a great opportunity for me to play with a lot of mediums (graphic design, UX, code, video) and get a sense for what it takes to pull together 360 campaigns. My work there was primarily split between Kawasaki and Version Wireless with most of my efforts focussed on web design and development.
