Speaker Spotlight – Brad Weaver

Revolve Conference 2015 Speaker Spotlight - Brad Weaver

Brad Weaver – Jack of many trades, and Master of many.  He’s been the big cheese, the plebeian, the middle manager, and the class clown. He’s folded clothes, pumped gas, bagged groceries, sold cell phones, and climbed the Great Wall of China. He’s a fan of beer, scotch, Oxford commas, and Jesus (not necessarily in that order), and is known for his gregariousness and barbecue sauce. When he’s not in front of a whiteboard, sketch pad, or monitor, you might stumble across Brad in the middle of the movie you’re watching. His superpower, naturally, would be mind-reading.

Brad currently functions as a Partner & Director of Design at Nine Labs.  Although Brad initially studied to become a lawyer, he has spent the last 15 years as a User Experience (UX) Generalist. His skill set includes product development, interactive branding, and market segmentation. He can design your graphics, optimize for user experience, code the front-end of your website, or lay out your iOS application.

As the CEO and Creative Director of Suckerpunch Studios, which he founded, Brad worked collaboratively with clients to solve business marketing challenges. Previously, he served as the Online Media Manager and Product Branding specialist for Verizon Wireless and did Visual Merchandising for American Eagle. His book, Creative Truth, releases early 2016 from Focal Press.
