SENIOR ART DIRECTOR

Shane Gonzalez
When Shane was in fourth grade, he got in trouble mid-test for turning his ruler into a throttle and pretending he was in a fighter jet. Later, when his teacher handed him back his 'F,' she informed Shane that dreaming was not a realistic career goal. Incorrect, Ms. McDonald.


Fast-forward ten years, and Shane wasn't flying the fighter jets, but directing them on the flight deck of the USS Enterprise. After traveling the world and facing King Neptune, Shane came back to California armed with a passion for design. He earned his BFA in advertising and set forth on his new career.


In the years since, Shane has worked at both large and small award-winning agencies in Southern California, with such notable clients as Thermador, CA Lottery, Dreyer's, Häagen-Dazs, Kona Brewing Co., Craft Brew Alliance, Dogswell, Oberto, The UPS Store, and Starbucks.


Outside of the office, Shane continues to work on passion projects—like searching for the perfect fish taco.
