HELLO. LET ME INTRODUCE MYSELF.

My name is Brad Burke. I'm a Creative Director and Product Designer in Los Angeles.

I recently co-founded Idol, a digital creative agency, with an emphasis on brand acceleration, innovation, and product development for a new and emerging world. We elevate established brands and emerging companies through creative strategy, UI/UX design, and brand systems development. To put it simply, we solve complex problems for our clients.

We've created digital experiences for clients like Toyota, produced content for Chevy, and have helped elevate startups in tech as well as the health food industry.

Throughout my career I've had the privelege of working agency-side as well as client-side. Before starting Idol, I was the first-ever
in–house Creative Director at Citadel, a multistrategy global hedge fund. While there, I was tasked with developing a unified brand system and elevated visual aesthetic which included redesigning sites for Citadel the hedge fund and Citadel Securities.

Prior to that, I led the award-winning redesign of Acura.com as a Creative Director at Razorfish. I developed all of the UI & UX for a fan-centric music app as Head of Product Design at Music Impacts. I've even created interactive experiences, social campaigns, and Super Bowl TV spots for Toyota, as an ACD at Saatchi LA. But it was working on Nike, first at R/GA in New York and then at AKQA in San Francisco, where I really began my creative journey.

All of this wouldn't have been possible, had I not been introduced to Photoshop and Flash in that Commercial Art class I took back in high school.

Until this site is complete, you can view samples of my work here, or my resume here. Reach me directly at brad@idol.partners
