1. Hello! Can you please tell us about yourself?
Of course! My name is Adrian Rubin and I’m based out of Brooklyn, New York. I’ve been living in New York and developing my skills as a Creative Director for the better part of the last decade and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. This city is alive with a creative energy that I truly believe brings out the best in people.
2. What inspired you to become a Freelance Creative Director?
I’ve always found my niche in the creative world. I’ve been sketching in my sketchpad since I was a small child and I knew when it came time for college that I would pursue my degree in art and design. Once I graduated it seemed like a natural progression of my interests to get to work on digital design and marketing.
I feel that being a Creative Director is the perfect mix of the creative outlet I crave while also allowing me to help my clients. Plus being a freelancer means I can set my own schedule, work my own hours, and take risks with my projects that I might not be able to if I were working in an established agency.
3. As a Freelance Creative Director, in which areas that you can help other business owners?
What I run into a lot is a common story with business owners. They started a business because they loved what they were doing, but quickly realized that they had to focus on the business and not the trade they loved. That’s where I come in.
I have the experience and toolset to help business owners focus on the trade they love while trusting me to take over the creative. I handle everything from marketing to advertising to brand design, and I’m damn good at what I do.
4. Where do you look for inspiration in your day-to-day work?
Part of why I love this city is because I take inspiration from the world around me. Brooklyn is such a diverse and thriving city that if I walk out my door and walk a mile in any direction I can discover something I’ve never seen before. I try to incorporate that flow and diversity into all my work by blending minimalism with subtle splashes of in-your-face uniqueness.
5. What advice would you give someone starting out in this industry?
The best advice I could give anyone trying to break into the creative space is to focus on what you love. Don’t worry about trying to do everything well. Instead, focus on the style and medium that you most enjoy and just create. The only way to get ahead in the industry is to develop your unique style and over time the work will come. Be a Bob Ross.
