JUSTIN WINGET

Chicago, Illinois, United States

Originally hailing from Orrville, a small town in Ohio better known as Jelly City USA, Justin was always an ambitiously creative kid. Whether trying to construct a bobsled out of tin cans in his basement, sketching out logo ideas for his beloved Cleveland Browns or designing the next prototype Indycar on the back of his science homework, it was always clear what career path Justin would follow...

Now an acclaimed thoroughbred creative, Justin’s years perfecting the doodles led to a role developing and executing strategies for some of the biggest brands in the sports, entertainment, restaurants and hospitality industries (including the Cleveland Browns!) A graphic designer by trade, he spent over a decade perfecting his craft and expanded that strategic mindset across a broad range of disciplines in his role as Creative Director for industry-leading Levy Restaurants. Charged with overseeing the billion-dollar Company’s cross-disciplinary efforts in the areas of graphic design, architecture, interior design, photography, environmental design, creative strategy, promotional marketing, merchandising, web design, motion graphics, presentation staging, videography and production design, Justin’s creative experience runs the gamut.

In addition to his role as Creative Director, Justin is both an author and an accomplished food, portrait

and landscape photographer. Most recently taking on the challenge of penning his first autobiography,

“The 33rd Chapter, Another year on the brink of Inner Peace and Parenthood,” the book details Justin and Wife Mandy’s harrowing journey back from two late prenatal losses. Now in the editing phase, the book is expected to release in early 2015.

Justin’s design and photography work has been featured in the pages of Oprah Magazine, USA Today, Food & Wine Magazine, American Way Magazine, LogoLounge, Forbes, SignGallery and in his first self-published book, “365+2010 – an Autophotographic Journey” detailing an entire year in pictures.
