With more than fifteen exciting years on the FineLine team, Steve’s 30+ years of creative experience includes both 2D and 3D design, as well as traditional and computer illustration. A few light years prior to joining FineLine, he was at Atari where he produced award winning video game package illustrations, memorable arcade game graphics and designed POP software displays. He then moved on to Worlds of Wonder where he art directed toy and plush doll package design and Toy Fair show graphics, along with designing new toy product concepts. From there he served as senior art director for Sun Microsystems where he contributed to the new corporate branding campaign and corporate communications materials, as well as art directing the new campus signage. Then just prior to joining FineLine, Steve was at Sega where, as Assistant Creative Director, he oversaw all the creative for packaging, trade shows and licensed products. Steve’s illustration work has appeared on posters and ads for Diet Rite Cola, Miller Brewing, Warner Bros Entertainment, Coca Cola, Ringling Brothers Circus and Whirlpool.
When he’s not creating award winning new corporate brand campaigns, illustrating inspirational corporate murals or designing fresh environmental event signage, Steve can be found trail running through the Santa Cruz mountains; illustrating pet, family and automotive portraits; singing and dancing in the Santa Cruz Follies performances and restoring classic Chevy cars and trucks.
