Aaron J. Washington is an award-winning creative designer and manager who loves great stories, comic books, and fettuccine alfredo. His wife and kids are his motivation in everything, aside from his passion for all things nerdy. Aaron can spend all day explaining why the Star Wars prequels are way better than the sequels (thanks to Lucasfilm Animation), why Avatar: The Last Airbender is the greatest cartoon in existence, and why some ad campaigns are better than others, all with the same vim and vigor. That's probably why large companies pay him money for what he does.
There's a proverb that says it's better to "let another man praise you, not your own mouth."
Believing those words to be true, here are some testimonials that speak to Aaron's work ethic as well as his character:

"I’ve had the pleasure of working with Aaron Washington as both a full-time colleague and as a freelance creative professional. In those capacities, he always brings a refreshing passion for excellence to the work and an energetic enthusiasm that builds excitement for the final product. Aaron’s design skills are multidimensional, with solutions that are creatively intuitive and strategically aligned. And throughout every engagement, he is responsive to direction and collaborative with team members and other creative stakeholders. In short, Aaron takes ideas and makes them better. And, in my 25+ years as a creative professional, that’s a rarity."
– Charles S. Talley    VP of Brand Strategy & Creative Services, First Horizon Bank

"Aaron is a top-notch designer with a great eye, sense of organization, and technical skills. When we worked together, his role involved everything from helping design and maintain a vast library of always-evolving marketing resources; to stepping into campaigns to design fresh, novel solutions on tight deadline; to even making complex, multiple photo corrections. Whatever was needed. Everyday, Aaron proved he was more than capable of handling the challenges of servicing a fast-paced creative/production department. On top of it all, Aaron's chill, upbeat demeanor made him a great collaborator and valued coworker.”

– Terry Griffin    Senior Graphic Designer, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (ALSAC)

I contacted him for my marketing agency and found not only his eye for design excellent, but he had exemplary communication, met deadlines, and was flexible with all the challenges of a new business. He has a diverse background which allowed us to utilize him for multiple projects, only helping us become more efficient. Highly recommended!"
