Principal / Creative Lead
Darin is the personification of doing it right and strives to deliver outstanding creative work on every project. His dedication to quality is apparent in the award-winning work of the dozens of designers fortunate enough to have Darin’s mentorship and art direction over the years. His leadership, internal drive, and focus on excellence help us accomplish extraordinary (some might even say impossible) things, and our clients benefit from his vision.
Darin has received many regional and national design awards for the high level of quality and intentionality that belongs to the projects he directs. As a member of the SFCC’s Graphic Design Advisory Board, he develops the graphic design curriculum. Darin actively supports the local ventures of the Inland Northwest Boy Scouts and the Rypien Foundation, an organization that offers financial support to local children and families who are battling childhood cancer. In 2005, Darin was selected as the Advertising Professional of the Year by Spokane’s American Advertising Federation (AAF) Chapter for his many contributions to the advertising industry.
