My name is Lee Milverton. I am an art director and senior designer who recently returned to Adelaide after nine years of working as a graphic designer in Washington, DC and across a global network.
I bring an unique perspective, understand the importance of connecting design to business, and believe in brand authenticity and the creative process — not just the end result. I have worked alongside talented creatives, Fortune 500 industry experts, government officials, and executive leadership to develop and implement designs that help simplify complex issues and find meaningful solutions.
Always eager for a challenge, I am an enthusiastic and positive team member who is ready to listen, inspire, and mentor fellow creatives.
