Chad Lawhon
Web and Graphic Designer


Highly creative and multitalented Graphic Designer with experience in front end web development, multimedia, and print design. Exceptional collaborative, design, and practical skills have served me well over the years. Successfully manages the reality of development issues encountered with plain and simple honesty. Passionate about creating teams with open lines of communication and establishing clear expectations of teammates while remaining flexible to address the ever changing dynamics of the development process. Driven to be a catalyst for success to ensure any given project reaches its potential. Open to new experiences to affect change and improvement for not only myself, but the organization I apply my talents towards.

In my free time I enjoy vacationing to mountainous areas for hiking, spending as much time as possible with my grand-children, taking in movies and video games for entertainment and prop building.

Featured Project

Trade Show Product Video and 3D Animations

I created these clips for IMTS (International Manufacturing Trade Show) which is the largest show of it's kind in the world held every two years in Chicago. This piece was designed to loop on a monitor above this product to assist the sales people on the floor in effectively communicating the purpose, value, and benefits of the product. Below are two pieces I created for the show utilizing 3d animation in Keyshot, After Effects, Illustrator, Photoshop, and Premiere.
