BRIAN STEELY – briansteely.com
Native Atlantan Brian Steely thrives on the electricity, diversity, and eclecticism of his hometown. He’s spent the last 18 years cultivating the Jackson Spalding creative shop from just himself to a team of 27 talented creatives and working for clients such as Element, Coca Cola, and Nike. When he’s not at JS, he keeps busy with his freelance company, Served with Soul, a specialty producer of distinctive monoline illustrations for clients around the world. Any free time is spent on the basketball court, in Atlanta’s many concert venues, or just hanging out with his two kids, wife of 14 years and faithful mutt, Rex Rider.
“I participated in AFE because I’ve seen the posters in my children’s classrooms and really feel this team of designers that AFE has assembled can make a difference and help make learning fun.”
