Gagen MacDonald
Visual Consultant

May 2012 — October 2015

Gagen MacDonald is a strategy execution consulting firm that specializes in employee engagement, culture change and leadership. As the first designer and creative consultant on staff, I worked alongside the marketing director to build the creative capabilities and offerings for the firm, these became a key differentiator.

I designed and developed employee engagement campaigns for many of the biggest and the best brands in the world including Phillips 66, Hyatt, Mars, Johnson and Johnson, Pfizer, The Hartford, and more.

I redesigned the firm’s website, created multiple marketing microsites, and worked with various team leads on a continual growth and evolution of the firm’s branding.

In my time with Gagen, I was able to help grow the department into multiple positions and add design-centric products to much of the firm’s workflow.
