Justin McKinley

My name is Justin McKinley a creative professional currently living in Boulder, Colorado. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts from Minneapolis College of Art and Design. There my education ranged from art history, design theory, furniture design, architecture, illustration, and photography with a primary focus in graphic design. I've worked at digital and traditional ad agencies, spent time on an in-house design team and most recently have established myself as an independent freelance designer accepting a variety of creative challenges. 

My time outside of the office is spent riding bikes, playing with my dog, and working on personal projects. I’m self-driven and receive satisfaction in pushing myself creatively to deliver innovative and pragmatic solutions. In future partnerships and collaborations I hope to continue delivering unexpected creative solutions. While I’m very independent I thrive in a collaborative creative environment. Simply put, I want make great work for good people.
