Nice to meet you.

I believe in design. I seek out working with folks who feel similarly. When rooted in strategy, design has the power to move. To ignite. It has the power to take a message and deliver it in a way that resonates with people. Design is digital. Design is tactile. Design is human.

Hello. I’m Dan Patton.

I’m an Austin-based graphic designer/art director and creative director. I’ve worked at a design studio, several ad agencies, and I’ve run my own design shop. Each has been a unique challenge, and each has taught me something about myself and the work I want to do. I’ve never been content with the idea of the every day grind. That’s what I love about design and advertising. Each day is a unique challenge. A chance to push the limits of what a company’s stake holders thought was possible. That’s where I believe the most effective ideas often live — in those sometimes-hard-to-see spaces between what a client thinks they want versus what they actually need.

The world is more designed today than it was ten years ago.

It’ll be more designed ten years from now than it is today.

Let’s get to work.

I am currently Creative Director at Group 7even.
