My name is Max Nolan, and I'm a graphic designer and photographer. I was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, and received my B.A. in Visual Communication from Loyola University Chicago in 2013. I specialize in creating brand-focused advertisements and promotional materials, editing digital photographs, and overseeing email and direct mail marketing campaigns. I am also well versed in authoring instructional texts, maintaining positive vendor relationships, and developing brand identities.
In all of my design work, my aim is to be direct and to clearly communicate a purpose. While I almost always implement typography, I work to express ideas without the use of words, and I enjoy doing so in multiple formats. My creative abilities have grown to provide me with a passion and proficiency in the areas of graphic design and photography.
Stylistically, my work creates tension yet remains conservative and elegant. More often than not however, I like to explore controversial, ironic, and humorous concepts. I believe that such themes hold the most potential to gain attention and guide viewers into a contemplative state.
