Hi. I'm Anthony Gorrity.

I’m a Creative Director that builds teams to cut through the noise of a crowded digital landscape with strategic storytelling and design.

Unlike other creatives, I’m so relentlessly results-driven that I have risen to be the #1 top performing team member (the top 0.625 percentile) in one of the fastest growing businesses in America for the last 8 years running.

My Story

I used to work in oil and gas manufacturing before I was laid off and forced to reconsider my career path. I found graphic design, and I never looked back.

I’m a first generation immigrant and the first in my family to get a college degree. My dad’s a carpenter, and my mom’s an art school dropout turned interior landscape designer, so I’ve been immersed in hard work and creativity all my life.

That allows me to approach every project with a craftsman’s touch and over a decade of experience. I’ve had the honor of designing and leading creative teams for INC 1,000 fastest growing companies like Ledge Lounger, Fortune 500s like Chevron and HP, as well as family-owned Texas brands like Chappell Hill Sausage, No Label Brewing, and 8th Wonder Brewery. I teach visual communication at the second largest community college in the US and hold a BFA in Graphic Design from Liberty University and the University of Houston.

My Writing

I’ve been really fortunate to work on lots of cool projects with really impressive clients, so my students and peers began asking me questions about how I did it.

It didn’t occur to me until 2016 that I should start documenting the questions and answers to share them at scale. Now, I’m on a mission to help young creatives maximize and monetize their creative abilities, sharing things I wish I was told when I first ventured into this field.
