For Dain, a solid day’s work is spent writing ideas on half sheets of paper and taping them to a wall until he sees a solution amidst the chaos and the medium to bring it to life. Finding a brand’s simple truth and paying it off with ideas that turn heads is what keeps him going during the day and up at night. Dain has been immersed in the Minneapolis advertising and arts community for over 12 years and has worked on brands such as H&R Block, Bauer Hockey, Cambria and 3M. He holds a degree in fine arts from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he went from furniture building and oil painting to graphic and web design. While Dain is technically a millennial, he is definitely an old millennial whom you will almost never find at brunch.
