Conrad Garner

Internationally award winning illustrator, designer and art & creative director. Specializing in packaging, branding, and advertising. I grew up always pursuing what made me curious. Playing the drums in bands with friends is where it started for me. I discovered my passion for art and design when I was promoting my different bands in high school. We had no budget for self-promotion, posters, flyers or merchandise. The hand crafted DIY mentality of making something your own, to share with people, connect with and inspire them, became an absolute obsession. Old toys, movies, stories, ads, packaging, and comics influence my work. I love hiking through the mountains or desert as much as I do walking around the city to absorb creative energy and inspiration. My process combines illustration, hand lettering, photography, painting, screen-printing, collage and digital design.
