Howdy, I’m Danny Pagano – a designer and photographer from Tucson, Arizona with wide-ranging experience across creative disciplines.
My formal design experience spans corporate identity design, web and digital design, in addition to marketing and communication strategy. My approach to any design challenge leverages cross-disciplinary ideas in design, technology, and imaging-making to produce simple communicative work for complex clients.
I'm a quick study of new ideas and skills, and relish the challenge of applying that knowledge to whatever problem I'm currently tackling.
I spend a lot of time thinking about sustainability, climate and permaculture. I dig riding bikes, playing golf and camping. Outside of work, I will attempt to take a DIY approach to virtually any at-home project with mixed results.
