Hi, my name is Brandon.

Thank you for checking out my website!

I am from a small town outside of Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA. I would like to think I had a semi-normal childhood that consisted of shooting army men out of trees with a BB gun, driving hot wheels over piles of dirt, and playing Crash Bandicoot on PlayStation with my mates.


Even though I had a pretty wild imagination, I did not start exploring my artistic side until I was 12 years old when my grandparents bought me a drum set. That changed everything. I started exploring the arts in a different way. Sports started to fade and music started to take over. I would spend hours on the computer discovering new genres and staring at my grandpas' LPs rotate around our turntable.


At university I decided not to pursue music, but rather creative advertising. I wanted to keep exploring my creative interests, but also keep exploring music – so I formed an experimental, folk-punk group, Billy. That was the first time that I combined music and art into one, designing posters, album art, and developing a website for the band.


I would say I have always been an ambitious and adventurous person. Halfway through university I moved to Uruguay and worked in a hostel for several months. Sometimes I just need a change. Recently, my partner and I decided to move halfway across the world to Wellington, New Zealand. Every artist needs to find a spot where they feel a positive energy and can really express their creativity. I found mine.

Why choose Design with Miller

Collaborative

When working on any project, collaboration is key. I understand the significance of communicating with different people to help concept and develop big ideas. No idea is too small, or big to not be heard. Everyone deserves to have their voice heard, and it is important to listen and communicate with your team. Whether it is just the client or a group of 20, being a team player is essential.

Project Management

It is crucial to be able to pick up a heavy work load and produce insightful and meaningful material, all while having fun doing it. Having worked at several agencies, I understand the seriousness of juggling multiple projects while communicating with the project manager, copywriter, creative director, and other designers on the progress of the projects.

Open and Friendly

I am a sociable person that excels at relating to others. I am always open, flexible, and outgoing. I welcome feedback and utilise it to improve my work. I am enthusiastic about design, and I am not shy to share my opinion. Besides drinking tea and listening to music, you will also find me challenging friends to a game of Rocket League, escaping to the outdoors, or playing the drums.

What my past employers
and clients
have said.

From small businesses in need of a website to non-profits driven to help their communities, I am proud to have worked with these wonderful people. Below are just a few of many that have appreciated the work that I have done.

Brandon’s design skills were already at a high level when he joined MAKE, but where he truly exhibited his worth to the team was his uncanny ability to acquire new skills and collaborate with his colleague to adopt them to ongoing work. If I plotted his abilities on a graph from the time he started here to the time he left, it would be an exponential upward curve. He came in with very little animation experience, but by the time he was done, he was our point person for animated work for demanding clients.

Brandon also has the rare ability to calmly receive critical feedback from peers and not only translate it to improved work, but also preemptively apply those lessons to future work and take it even further, to enhance the output of the entire team overall.

He adapted and varied his work to fit the range of clients we support, with an attitude that was unwaveringly optimistic and energetic.

In short, if I had my way, Brandon would still be here, working with me at MAKE. I cannot recommend him highly enough.




Ryan Hannebaum

Creative Director

Brandon and his team developed the initial concept – the winning concept among four other pitches – with full consideration for the target audience, the desired call to action, the budget, and the sensitive topic of drug use among youth. In partnership with the team, he subsequently created a series of mood boards to flush out the campaign personality; crafted the campaign tagline and subsequent copy for all collateral; designed the campaign logo/mascot; wrote the code for the website; and coordinated and co-directed the video shoot.

Brandon is a delight to work with. He is open, flexible, and creative. He takes feedback easily and is quick to identify alternative concepts. He expertly balances respecting the needs and goals of the client while asking questions to better understand those goals – all with authenticity and professionalism.

Brandon brought enthusiasm, insight, and skill to a project that will, thanks to him and his team, be implemented throughout the community to improve the health and well-being of youth. I wholeheartedly recommend Brandon - he is sure to be a valuable asset to any creative or strategic team.




Chana Goussetis

Marketing Communications Manager

Earlier this year a mutual acquaintance recommended Mr. Miller after I expressed wanting to work with a web designer who emphasized collaboration. It was really important to me to have a site that conveyed who I was a a psychology practitioner instead of having one of a more generic quality. In this regard Mr. Miller did a great job on creating my website and working with me on it. He really put much attention to the creative process. He also was great in making sure my site was secure to my profession's ethical standards. I very much appreciate his conscientiousness in this respect.

Two other positive things I'd like to state about Mr. Miller: He's really good at relating to others. I've seen him in a number of social contexts (e.g., talking with my colleagues when coming to my office to take pictures; meeting with me multiple times as he worked on the website) and he seems quite at ease in this way. Secondly, he strikes me--a layperson when it comes to web design and how things work on the internet--to be quite competent in his subject area. I understand he's studied coding and related subjects in college and this becomes quite evident in talking with him.

Given these qualities, the final product, and my overall experience working with Mr. Miller, I have readily recommended him to my colleagues and friends.

In sum, I recommend Mr. Miller, with no reservations, for any position he applies for consistent with his abilities, knowledge, and work history.
