SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Global branding and design firm Hornall Anderson has recently hired Rahmin Eslami as a VP of Design—partnering with current VP of Design, Michael Connors—to help lead the agency’s innovative design efforts and push its creative vision for brilliant impact forward.
Rahmin is charged with overseeing an inter-disciplinary design team working on national and global branding for clients. Duties will include mentoring and inspiring staff, and promoting a culture of creative excellence. He will be tasked with growing lasting relationships with diverse clients by leading teams inspired to do emotionally compelling work that resonates with audiences and motivates action.
As capable of bringing ideas to life as he is bringing life to ideas, Rahmin has made an impact on a number of global brands, including previous projects for Abbott, Bank of Nova Scotia, Ethicon Endo-Surgery, GE, Johnson & Johnson, Michelin brands, PepsiCo, Kraft Foods, and Procter & Gamble.
“My goal is to make people feel things through branding,” said Rahmin. “I believe conceptual ideas drive better design and that emotion is a powerful vehicle for impact. To me, true communication comes about at a deeper level than what is sometimes readily seen or heard—and I’ve been known to keep digging until that level is reached.”
“We are excited to have Rahmin’s expertise, knowledge and passion on our leadership team,” said John Anicker, Hornall Anderson’s CEO and President. “His deep commitment to helping translate business objectives into insightful and strategic creative will help us continue to provide our clients with the high quality of design work and innovative experiences they expect and deserve from us.”
Prior to joining Hornall Anderson, Rahmin was a Creative Director with Landor Associates in Chicago, IL. His work has been recognized by the Business Marketing Association, American Advertising Federation, AIGA, PRINT magazine and Graphis.
