Andy Attiliis began his career serving in the creative departments of several advertising agencies. During that period, the positions he held included: Production Artist, Graphic Designer / Illustrator, Art Director / Writer, Co-Creative Director and Creative Director. Attiliis went on to become President / Creative Director of his own design studio and VP / Creative Director of Gill Inc., a Web site design and content development company. From each platform, he has helped clients identify and perform the creative functions necessary to produce their messages. Whether a project required single or multi-service assistance usually depended on their project's managerial and scheduling requirements. Andy has been hired by associations, businesses, nonprofit groups and the Federal Government.
Because he's able to deliver concept, brand, copy writing, illustration and design, many organizations have enjoyed substantial savings on the development of their promotional work. In addition to facilitating cost efficiency, versatility and quality have been key to him being awarded scores of multi-layered assignments. For example, Andy's illustration portfolio shows 12 groups of work with 10 different looks in the 'Line' section alone. In his design portfolio there are over 300 categorized samples.
