Please welcome Ian Dickens as Partner & Creative Director

by Steven Trevathan

I’m honored to announce that Ian Dickens has joined us as both Partner and Creative Director of make&model! I have been trying to convince Ian for the better part of five years to work with me, and the stars have, at long last, perfectly aligned.

I remember when I first met Ian in Boston. He had just moved from the midwest (with his incredibly talented partner, Emma) to join a branding agency. Now, back home in the midwest (Chicago), he brings to make&model his titanic expertise in brand, visual systems, and user interaction design.

As Partner and Creative Director on our team, the heart of his role is supporting the cross-discipline collaboration of both client and internal teams as well as facilitating the individual growth of the members of our design team.

There is much more to share that is the result of Ian’s work (from our for-good priority as a business, to the products, events, and educational offerings we’re experimenting with), but you’ll see those in blog posts down the road.

I couldn’t be more excited for our future than I am today. Thank you, Ian. You’ve taken us planets away from where we were just a few months ago. I’m proud to call you a partner and see where this ship goes next.
