Creative Director“There is a stellar solution to every problem. Embrace that vision or resign yourself to mediocrity.”
Steve is proof that you can stay in one place without standing still. Since joining Bailey Brand Consulting in 1991, Steve has grown from designer to creative director. Today, he has more than 20 years of experience developing visual solutions to strategic problems. He’s led teams that have produced award-winning work for a variety of clients—including Johnson & Johnson, LG, Maxell, Welch’s, Twinings Tea and p.i.n.k. vodka—and even holds a few patents for structural packaging he’s designed along the way.
A longtime member of AIGA and a former member of the executive board of AIGA Philadelphia, Steve currently serves on the advisory board for Package Design magazine. His work has been featured in PRINT, HOW, Graphic Design USA, Communication Arts and Applied Arts, and he has received scores of regional and national awards, including the London International Advertising Gold Award, Fraser Paper Design Inspiration Award and top honors in the HOW Self Promotion Competition. Most recently, Steve and his team developed Drop-In SoapStix—a sustainable product concept and packaging that took the Grand Prize in the PackExpo Project 2020 Package of the Future competition.
Steve holds a B.A. in Graphic Design from the Pennsylvania State University. In addition to travelling globally (he’s visited 19 countries across three continents), he has been an avid mountain biker and once rode with Gary Fisher, who is credited as the father of the sport. These days, Steve has traded his mountain bike for training wheels as he enjoys spending time with his wife and three young children.
