What’s up, I’m James, an art director and motion designer based out of Chicago.
“James was a joy to work with at The Onion. He came on as an intern and proved himself an invaluable asset, so we’ re bringing him in to work on a regular basis. His aptitude to learn new programs, technical skill sets and work flows was head turning for a young designer right out of school. He was fun to work next to too. He’s also tall.“
– JJ Shebesta
Creative Director of the Onion News Network
“James Brennan is a motion graphics designer of the highest caliber. Not only does he bring a strong design sensibility and a thorough technical knowledge to any project he works on, but also initiative, organization, and a collaborative spirit. I would highly recommend him for any project.“

Art Direction & Branding
My style combines knowledge of modern design trends with an appetite for breaking the rules. When I create something, my goal is to strike a unique balance between visual, audio, voice and tone. I have experience as an art director and visual guardian for an entire network and I’ve directed and produced several projects for broadcast and web.
