CV — Kurtis Powers
I’m an experienced Creative/Art Director with a diverse skill set.
I’ve led large and small teams for clients equally. I’m a natural collaborator. I thrive and strive for the “we” culture in the industry. Working with others who seek the same has helped me to do some of the work I’m most proud of.
I’m fortunate to have worked with great teams and great agencies for brands and artists I’m very proud of, and that challenged us. This is what I look for in new opportunities.
