About me

My name is Fred and I'm an art director/designer and sometimes even copywriter, looking for work.

I've been in the ad business since graduating from Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, CA in 1988.

I'd love to be considered for any freelance or full-time work you might have, if you think I might be a good match

I have have owned and operated my current agency (KrickelCreative) since 2007, crafting messages, writing headlines and designing marketing materials for some of the biggest brands in the world, including: 3M, Dollar Rent A Car, Edwards Life Sciences, Johnson & Johnson, KIA Motors, Medtronic, Polycom, Toshiba

and Yamaha—just to name a few.

Currently, I reside in San Diego, California but have worked with clients all over the world, and if the right opportunity comes along I'd move in heartbeat!

Admittedly a workaholic, I love what I do and it shows in the amount of enthusiasm and effort I put into each and every project.
