Welcome. I am

Brock
McClung,

A DIGITAL VISUAL DESIGNER,
TOY GEEK AND GAME JUNKIE
FROM THE WASHINGTON, D.C. METRO AREA.

I am a versatile, energetic and passionate visual designer with over 15 years of print, web and interactive design experience.

I know InDesign like the back of my hand and can wield a mean brush and pen in Photoshop and Illustrator.

I am also tri-lingual — speaking English, HTML and CSS.

With my trusty phone, tablet, laptop and DSLR as my constant companions, I work to shape, mold, excite and organize in print, web, interactive and broadcast medias. With empathy as my secret weapon, I work to shape better, more engaging, more memorable user experiences.

My interests in branding and marketing make me consider the numbers, while my technical prowess and love of bringing order to chaos makes me a good fit in nearly every creative situation.

So, how may I help you?

My design style is very Swiss Typographic Style and Cubist-inspired. I fell in love with the grid system while in college and have a serious appreciation for the incredible storytelling that appears in true, layered Cubist compositions.

When not shooting glamour photography or engaged in a freelance project, you can usually find me either parked on the couch in my video game archive room, writing and reviewing collectible toy releases, or preparing for my next tabletop battle by painting miniature wargame figures.
