Who is Dan?

Hello! I’m Dan Leon Krause, an award winning Designer and Art Director with over 15 years of experience across digital, branding and print. I have a passion for bringing conceptual ideas to life and am persistent in exploring solutions to digital challenges.

Whilst working at various global agencies, such as Razorfish and AKQA, I produced award winning designs for over 10 years. Together with my teams, we created meaningful experiences and products for clients such as Nike, Audi, Lamborghini, Xbox, Samsung, Microsoft, Siemens, Pepsi, Smirnoff, IWC Schaffhausen, Mont Blanc, Swatch, Moleskin, Clarins, Getty Images, eBay, Australia Post and Qantas.

I leverage my facilitation skills across strategy, creative, experience and development teams in order to achieve seamless experiences, high quality work and ROI for client projects. I have a broad skill set including conceptual, visual, user interface, user experience, brand and motion design. Above all, I am open minded, innovative and extremely passionate about my craft.

My passion for design has lead me to successfully maintaining my own small design business for over the last 15 years. Clients include MTV Networks, NRMA, Merivale Group, Fuzzy Events and more recently Emotive Content (a start-up content marketing agency) where I led the entire branding experience from concept to execution, completing everything from visual identity to website and print collateral.

My knack doesn’t stop at the computer. My talents have lead me to being invited to exhibit my illustrations at various galleries in Sydney and Melbourne.
