My name is Todd Morgan and I am an experienced, passionate, confident, enthusiastic, engaged Graphic Designer who has worked as a freelance creative in both team and solo environments over the past two decades.

My role has been integral in the production of industry-leading design, creating appealing and impactful work that follows client best practices, and overall marketing and branding strategies. As a Freelance Creative, I have collaborated with clients and other team members, advising on design strategies and challenges based on established criteria, for a variety of projects such as
print, web, video, animation, presentation, and more.

I am an expert in Presentation Design, creating PowerPoint decks for CEO keynote events, communications and branding templates, interactive kiosks, and was a MS Beta Tester for PPT2003. I have often worked with clients to teach techniques to improve document and presentation projects.

Over time, I have had my hands in many different projects, managing creative and content from ideation and planning, to deliverable, with many projects having a very short turnaround. Project budgeting, subcontractor management, vendor relations are well within my wheelhouse of skills, along with engaging with stakeholders and bringing their vision to fruition.

I have two amazing daughters, two crazy dogs, a few fish and a cat. Sunday brunches with Eggs Benny are a specialty of mine, followed by an afternoon of watching football or basketball. Addicted to hot yoga, Krav Maga, reading, and spending time outdoors.
