Seattle-based Daniel Brown is an artist whose exceptional proficiency and versatility allows him to move seamlessly from one field of storytelling to another.

In Brown’s productions, each and every shot is made for impact — his commercial work has a snappy and clear narrative rhythm, and his strong grasp on animation and creative direction open up innovative storytelling possibilities.

A maker with a unique sense of artistry, Brown breathes an aura of magical realism into his motion work through his natural sense for animation and creative direction. Brown has produced ethereal and atmospheric music video work for prominent artists such as ODESZA, Jon Bellion and Merk & Kremont. Commercially, he has directed ads for Nike, HTC, Beats by Dre, Amazon, T-Mobile, Sundance Film Festival, Burger King, Fox Television, Microsoft and more — including Wendy’s first-ever Super Bowl Commercial.

Brown initially debuted in the industry as an animator at the Emmy-winning company Digital Kitchen before taking on writing and creative direction. He currently serves as the Executive Creative Director at World Famous and works as an in-house creative director with Amazon. Previously, Brown was represented by UNHEARD/OF as a director at and as Creative Director of Oh, Hello.

Most recently Brown wrapped a campaign with Amazon Web Services titled “Your Age,” and is now working on publishing his self-produced comic book How To Kill A Rap Star, as well as developing a couple of feature-length projects.
