About My Business:


Chad J. Shaffer is a freelance illustrator/designer/animator living in the NYC area. He has been a professional artist for over 16 years, equally adept at both print and web. His 13 year experience as an art director at UBM, a global publication company, has cultivated a unique professional with a multitude of skills and talents. Infusing his illustration expertise where applicable, his designs always have a distinct appeal. The first half of his career was in editorial, responsible for page layouts, features, logos and illustration. Later, he moved to the marketing side as Associate Art Director of the in-house art department, working primarily on animated flash intros/banners, robust PPT presentations, logos, illustrations, e-newsletters and micro sites. Incredible workloads, tight deadlines, high pressure creative environments and sharp technical know how are all a part of Chad's daily routine. After leaving UBM in March '09, Chad continued his freelance career through his existing client base. Presently, he is focusing on creating marketing videos that explain complex technological offerings for the SMB market. As a conceptual artist, Chad brings together his writing, illustration and animation skills to produce succinct presentations/animations, helping potential customers better understand the value of a company's idea, product or service. On the cusp of innovate marketing, Chad incorporates his unique style into every animated web commercial he produces, increasing convergence and leveraging viral marketing. Recent clients include: Adler Concepts, Adobe, AMEX, AT&T, Baby Einstein, Canon, Computer Reseller News, ChannelWeb, Crain's New York Business, Curves, Disney, eBay, EETimes, eQuest, Fujitsu, HP, IBM, Infoweek, Ingram Micro, Ladies' Home Journal, Microsoft, Novell, Panasonic, Quantum, Scholastic, SelectMinds, SHRM, Sprint, TrendMicro, VARBusiness, Xerox, United Business Media, and U.S. News & World Report among many other international clients.
