Stephen Drake Creative Services

A graduate of The Art Institute of Ohio-Cincinnati with a degree in Interactive Media Design, I enjoy spending most of my time trying new ways of developing interactivity with what I design or create. The beginning of my career started in automotive marketing for 2 luxury car brands in Cincinnati and designing fantasy/sci-fi cover art for New York Times best sellers. Away from work I love spending time with my wife and new baby boy, Lincoln.
