About Chad Geran.
Chad Geran has worked for over 10 years providing a wide range of clients with fun, thoughtful, creative solutions. He has created illustrations for various printed materials, branding and visual identities, greeting cards, web design, animation, and a variety of advertising in a diverse range of media. The success of these projects has lead to incredible opportunities to teach, travel, work overseas, and conduct several assessments, workshops, and presentations for various organizations.
Chad's career began in 1999. He spent his first years working in Regina, Canada at boutique design shops as an Illustrator and Graphic Designer. From there he had several opportunities to work abroad— in 2004 he worked in Amman, Jordan as an Illustration/Design Instructor, and in 2006/2007 he worked as Illustrator and Art Director in Auckland, New Zealand.
With his experience and schooling in animation, storytelling, and film Chad became an Art Director (and later, a partner) at Saskatchewan's largest advertising agency. These experiences had a tremendous impact on Chad's development as an illustrator, designer, storyteller and as a visual communicator.
Chad has worked continuously in a freelance capacity since the launch of his website in 2003. His strengths lie in creating images and stories that are interesting for children while sophisticated enough to entertain adults. Diligence, enthusiasm and attention to detail have helped Chad cultivate a reputation for meeting deadlines, superior time management and above all, for quality work. His good nature, positive attitude and sense of humour are assets valued by clients, employers, coworkers and students.
