I’m Shawn Gurczak. Also know as Shawn Relish, which I find has a more digestible ring. I grew up on the east coast in a small town north of Boston. However, I don’t have much of an accent (or so I’ve been told).
After receiving my BA in Illustration/Animation from The Art Institute of Boston in 2005, I moved to San Francisco to start my career. When I’m not working, I'm usually trying to surf or on an adventure in this amazing city on my bike. I’m a minimalist who sees the world as a layered playground of colors, patterns and textures where I can explore. Follow me on Instagram to see what I mean @shawnrelish.
I worked at a couple of boutique shops before arriving at Tribal DDB. My current title is Art Director, but that’s only because llustratorStrategicDesignerConceptualArtistSocialTechnologyThinker isn’t a word. At least that’s what the copywriters tell me.
Here's a brief list of some of the clients I've had the pleasure of working with.
