For the last nine years I was a lead creative at Spiceworks, a software startup in Austin, TX. Now I'm a Creative Director for hire.
We can probably skip over my early years and adventures. Sure, there was that one time a shark pinned me in a cave while free diving (true story!), but you didn't come here to read about that, did you? Moving right along...
When I’m not designing, I love to spend time with my family, row, and read sci-fi novels. I also dabble in a variety of other creative endeavors from interior design to photography to (very basic) furniture making. Just don’t ask me to feng shui your living room.
At Spiceworks I was also responsible for the work my teams produced, and you can see that on Spiceworks' Dribbble team page.
If you'd like to work together (or if you just want to know more about the shark), drop me a line.
Looking for calm, creative seas in the midst of a storm of project demands, design changes and deadlines? Then you won’t find a better shepherd (captain?) that Chat Clussman. I’ve known Chat for several years and could always rely on his steadfastness in terms of getting projects done, or providing his team the guidance and mentoring to accomplish the same.
Director of Global Field & Channel Marketing at SanDisk
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Chat personally and look forward to each and every project/engagement that we’re able to work. Chat is distinct, creative and calls things the way he sees them. No fluff or hot air — simply to the point and accurate every time. He is hard working, thorough and isn’t afraid to question status-quo when it comes to design. It is always a pleasure to work with him.
Visual Design & UX Team Lead at IBM Design
Chat has never failed to impress me with the dedication with which he approaches his work. He has a sharp eye which serves him both as a designer and creative director. This, along with his experience, means he’s able to quickly direct and produce quality design with less churn than most designers. It’s been a pleasure to work with Chat, and I sincerely hope to do so again in the future.
