Justin is an illustrator and designer with a penchant for the weird. This is clearly visible in the work he currently creates at Erwin Penland as Senior Art Director on the Denny’s social media team. In this role, he collaborates and generates engaging and bizarre illustrative and animated content for the highly lauded and awarded Denny’s social media channels.
Some might say Justin is a lovable curmudgeon, but that’s what happens when you’ve been working in the design and advertising world for over 15 years. Through the years, Justin has helped create award-winning branding and design work, but it is currently his illustration and animation projects that give him new hope in the world of marketing. Who knew animated GIFs were the antidote for marketing burnout?
Justin spends all of his time outside of work doing disaster and humanitarian relief work—it’s part of his daily routine as a Dad. Justin also acts as photographer, curator and writer for his personal blog, Weirdotoys.
