Samples of some of my graphic design work.

SEAN LIEN Graphic Designer EMAIL PHONE 612.293.LIEN (5436) Growing up, my notebooks were filled with scribbles of cartoon characters, spaceships, fat graffiti letters, hot rods and hair metal band logos. I wanted to be a cartoonist, but didn’t think I had any good stories to tell. Then I heard about Graphic Design and everything changed.

Client> Minnesota Twins Element> Season Ticket Boxes Description> These boxes were sent to season ticket holders and contained their set of tickets for the year. There were three sizes– one for 20-game packs, one for season ticket holders (shown), and one for suites. The box was designed to look like a book cover, complete with the edges of a book printed along the sides.

Client> Drift Racing Element> Catalog Description> Drift Racing is a brand of apparel geared towards power sports enthusiasts. We wanted to focus what happens after a day of ridinggrabbing some food at the town bar, bowling at the local bowling alley, or just swapping stories with friends.

Client> Periscope Element> Wrapping Paper Description> Two-sided wrapping paper was sent to client and vendors as a holiday gift from Periscope. One side was “Naughty” complete , with mischievous looking gingerbread men, evil Nutcrackers and sharp snowflakes. The other side was “Nice” featured pie and puppies, and was designed by Jacey Braband. ,

Client> Audio-Technica Elements> Print ads, web site, packaging Description> A-T is a manufacturer of microphones, headphones and turntable cartridges. Although they started in Japan over 40 years ago, their brand recognition was low in the U.S. We repositioned them as a company of “quiet confidence” who gave the end user more than they expected.

Client> CMS Property Management Element> Business System Description> The Depot is a hotel and entertainment complex located in downtown Minneapolis, built on the site of a former train depot. After sitting dormant for decades, it is now “A Place For People Again.” The look of the system is taken from early 1900s graphics, when the original train depot was built.

Client> Triple Voodoo Brewery Element> Identity Description> Triple Voodoo is a craft brewery based in San Francisco. The mark comes from their passion for creating the extraordinary and their fascination with the mysterious and misunderstood. Client> Bridgestone Element> Identity Description> B.E.N. is an app that helps truckers connect to the services they need while on the road. It includes an interactive map featuring dealer and truck stop locations, emergency service providers, and the ability to call for service based on GPS location. Client> Walgreens Element> Identity Description> This logo was developed for a corporate safety and wellness program. Because the mark had to be used across multiple departments, I chose to incorporate an organic shape that could shift as necessary. A bright color palette was used to draw attention without relying on traditional bright yellow and red Warning signs.

SEAN LIEN Graphic Designer “Sean is an excellent creative thinker. What I really like about Sean’s work is his approach. He uses unique ways to discover particular solutions to unique brand issues. Then his creative detail kicks in as he refines and polishes his thoughts into great, on-brand creative ideas.” -Mark Morse, Principal, Morsekode “Sean is an outstanding creative designer! He approaches business problems strategically, collaborates well with team members, builds and executes solid creative solutions and presents in an organized and strategic manner. His creative thinking and problem-solving skills are outstanding - he’s dependable, committed and would be an asset to any team!” -Marcia Miller, SVP, Corporate Marketing & Marketing Services, Optum “Sean not only understands Design, he understands how to communicate. He brings a great sense of design style to projects. He has a great eye for type and layout. And has the ability to really understand what words are trying to communicate. As a writer, I really appreciated that. He challenged me, and made every project better. He’s also a great guy who works hard and really cares about what he’s doing. Other than that, I really didn’t like him.” -Steve Kaplan, Copywriter, Periscope “Sean was my instructor at Brainco for various classes. He was my go-to-person for all design related questions. Sean is an excellent instructor. He always challenged me and pushed me to create the best work possible. Sean is a great person who always goes above and beyond to help his students become the best they can be. I appreciate his dedication and hope other students are as fortunate to have an instructor as great as Sean.” -Benjamin Clymer, Interactive Designer, OLSON “Sean is very detailed-oriented and cool-headed person when under the gun. He’s an ace at managing his time and a master at finding ways to work with a small budget. He has a way of making the final product look as if it were done with a larger budget. Sean also has a great sense of color and working in a variety of design styles. He’s also gained more experience in managing other designers and is a great team player.” -Paul Afong, Creative Director, Morsekode
