Traditionally, I’m the guy behind the scenes creating the next level
for executives, corporations, municipalities, politicians, artists and ideas.
Rarely do I have the time to tell my own story.
This is my 15 minutes of fame from 40 years of work.

DEFINING THE ROLE OF CREATIVE DIRECTOR
A creative director is a position often found within the graphic design, film, music, video game, fashion, advertising, media, or entertainment industries, but may be useful in other creative organizations such as web development and software development firms as well.
A creative director is a vital role in all of the arts and entertainment industries. In another sense, they can be seen as another element in any product development process. The creative director may also assume the roles of an art director, copywriter, or lead designer. The responsibilities of a creative director include leading the communication design, interactive design, and concept forward in any work assigned. For example, this responsibility is often seen in industries related to advertisement. The creative director is known to guide a team of employees with skills and experience related to graphic design, fine arts, motion graphics, and other creative industry fields. Some example works can include visual layout, brainstorming, and copywriting. To assume the role of a creative director, one must already have an existing set of skills and expertise in many areas. Often, these types of artists start up from the very beginning in fields that can relate to motion graphics, advertisement in television, and/or book (or magazine) publishing.

We work with some of the most prestigious organizations and projects in the music industry. Was recommended to Chick Ciccarelli after having problems with another web developer. He not only delivered our project within deadline, but I ended up using his artistic capabilities on many professional and personal projects for several years thereafter. Chick is talented, makes himself available 24/7 and is fun to work with.Desmond ChildCEO Deston Ent, Co Founder LSHOF, Board SHOF

I have known and worked with Chick Ciccarelli for over 15 years. He is my first call and go-to for web, branding and visual presentation. He is creative, responsive… and has handled "rush" projects on an immediate basis many times for me. I offer Chick the highest recommendation to anyone who needs a reliable, responsive, creative executive to execute a project.Rick StevensCEO, Y Entertainment (Artist Group Intl, AGI Entertainment, AGI Vigliano, Ibiza Ent)
We’ve known Chick for a number of years and he has worked on several design projects for Bullseye Entertainment and the Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame. He was especially helpful with the Jencarlos Canela album campaign (became number 1 on Latin Billboard charts) for our private record label and the launch of latingsonghall.org (under unusual time constraints). We recommend Chick as a member of any creative team.Rudy & Betsy PerezCo Founders and Executive Director LSHOF
