About Me

I’m Zack Hackett: a passionate, versatile and design orientated artist who specializes in creative problem solving and strategic designs for all platforms or canvas’ with a focus on conveying a story or deeper meaning. Born and raised in Chicago, I moved to Los Angeles a few months ago to explore my creative pursuits out west.

I am currently in the market for a new projects or full-time positions.

My background is vast and filled with a plethora of experiences in a variety of industries. While always an artist from birth with graffiti and sneaker design being my childhood obsessions, somehow my first career was a special education teacher assistant. After graduated from Illinois State University with a double major in mass communication and philosophy I got into broadcast radio working for several stations under a variety of titles: engineer, producer, music/production director and copywriter. In 2009 I switched gears to obtain another degree, this time from the Art Institute in Interactive & Web Design. I have found success in all of my projects; websites, applications, marketing and advertising pieces, print materials, brand creation, typography, to corporate identities or theme based events for national and global clients. More importantly I found happiness in this visual based industry. I pride myself on constantly expanding my unique set of skills, studies, and experiences into the fine crafted and adaptable artist/designer who approaches every project like an investigative reporter searching in or outside the proverbial box for the best logically based creative solution that you are here seeking to hire today.
