“A company cannot become a brand until the emotional value has been illuminated, and given life. Dan McDougall specializes in bringing brands to life. He was born and raised in the northwest. Inspired by his natural surroundings - Mountains, rivers, the vivid colors of the Northwest, and the eclectic people that live there. Dan has gleaned an array of insights that drive his visual communication. His passion for art, coupled with a natural gift of business sense, positioned Dan to tell stories in the publication industry. Here, Dan bloomed while working on print advertising campaigns for the likes of Cadillac, Subaru and Hertz, to name a few.
Dan then decided to take his natural gift to an industry for which he was passionate - branding and marketing for craft beer. He wooed the major branding agency in the industry at the time, which was conveniently located in Seattle, WA. Dan was an instrumental part of the branding team where he worked with breweries from startup phase all the way to big brands such as Redhook, Widmer Brothers, Kona Brewing and Dos Equis.
