CHAPTER THREE GAMES
(Creative Director)

Chapter Three has been so very different and yet so much like my previous career stages. I work as the coordinator between the creatives, the bottom-liners and our customers. In a nutshell, I take the projects from a client’s idea through a creative team of artists and designers until we end up with a finished product. This involves teams of up to 30 people on projects ranging from simple card games to complex tabletop games and related all marketing pieces.

SKILLS USED:
• Adobe Creative Suite
• Writing – Short & Long Copy
• Design & Layout
• Manufacturing
• Product Branding
• Project Management
• Thinking outside-the-box (pun intended)

2002 - 2011

BYU (English & Manufacturing)

As a student at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, I studied both English and Manufacturing. On the English side, I was taught by renowned authors such as Rick Walton and Brandon Sanderson and on the Manufacturing side I studied with industry giants like Brent Strong.

While English and Manufacturing don’t typically go hand-in-hand, it paved the way for me to liaise between creative and manufacturing teams easily.

SKILLS REFINED:
• Writing, Short & Long Copy
• Teaching
• Project Coordination
• Time & Asset Management

AUG 2012 - AUG 2014

RED C GALLERY (Gallery Director)

As the Gallery Director, I was responsible for organizing and managing all internal events (employee training, sales and marketing) and external events (community shows, classes and workshops). I was in charge of taking the ideas of employees, customers and industry experts and making them successful and profitable shows and promotions.

SKILLS USED:
• Project Management
• Guerilla Marketing
• Human Resources
• Time & Asset Management
• Creative Thinking
• Communication

2000-2002

UVU (Communications)

At Utah Valley University in Orem, Utah, I started my college career studying Communications (Writing), but in the process was introduced to speech and verbal communication. While I kept writing as my primary focus, I learned principles of communication that I’ve used in every endeavor since then. As a neat side note, I managed to take 1st place in the Speech Invitation during my final year at UVU.

SKILLS REFINED:
• Communication, Spoken & Written
• Teaching
• Creative Thinking
• Time & Asset Management
• When to dig your heels in and when to just shut up and sit down

SEP 2002 - DEC 2011

REPARTEE GALLERY & FRAMEWORK (Director of Sales & Marketing)

Being raised in an artist’s home, I was surrounded by art and creativity from the time I was old enough to speak. When the opportunity came to work on the business side of creativity, I jumped at the chance. Working with Repartee on the business side of art gave me a perspective from both sides of the design coin – the creative side and the bottom line.

At Repartee, we practiced the tried and true business and marketing model while continually jumping outside the box with new business ideas and guerrilla marketing campaigns that stretched our customer base beyond the norm…and we had a blast doing it!

Some of the greatest lessons learned at Repartee, however, weren’t from the successful promotions and home run ideas, but from those ideas that were less-than-stellar and took more work and creative thinking to pull off.

SKILLS USED:
• Teaching & Training
• Creative Thinking
• Project Management
• Adobe Creative Suite
• Product Branding
• Communication
• Sales & Customer Service
• Thinking outside-the-box

THREE (ISH) TESTIMONIALS

At a glance, this seems to be spot on. What I mean to say is, ‘You are the man!’

Jericho Cline - Marketing Director at Season's Medical

Creativity is who you are! Making games is easy for you and you don’t even know it!

Thomas Scott - Owner and CEO at Brusa Distributing

Bryun is the reason there is hope in this world for the little guy. I’m not just saying that because Bryun has blackmail on me and threatened to break my knees if I didn’t. He is a hero and example to us all. Can I go now?
