I'm Dylan Costa. I've been creating art since I was a child, always finding a way to express my creativity. As I grew, so did my affinity for technology. This evolution paved the way for the convergence of my passions: design and video. My enthusiasm for this dynamic blend pushed me to pursue my B.S. in Digital Art and Design, a pivotal step that solidified my skills. I'm on the creative team at Banner Public Affairs, where we work with a diverse range of clients; from government non-profits to cybersecurity and tech startups. With experience in both freelance and corporate environments, I bring a unique approach to the creative process. In a world headed towards artificial content and design, your brand/business needs a creative with years of experience. Someone who can craft timeless, bespoke visuals that will deeply connect with your audience and effectively convey your message. With expert communication, thorough organization, strategy, and plenty of caffeine, we can create something great.
