Design + Ideas = Great Stuff

Currently Director of Creative for Fiksu in Boston, MA. Fiksu provides data-fueled mobile marketing technology that connects brands, agencies, and app advertisers to targeted mobile audiences throughout the customer journey.

“This is the thing about Lou Strano, graphic designer extraordinaire -- I can give Lou a basic, vague idea of a concept for a client web site or piece of collateral and receive back a product so visually ideal and on target that it not only meets expectations but launches client status, image and excitement into the stratosphere. I continue to be surprised by Lou’s vision and thrilled to have Lou as a resource for my clients. He is a one-in-a-million. Take a peek at his site - you’ll immediately see what I mean.” -Marianne McEvoy, McEvoy Media

I have a passion for design that pushes me to always try and learn something new. My body of work shows both the breadth of my 20 years of experience and the depth of working intimately with projects from concept to completion. It makes me smile to tell people that "I love what I do", and in the end I hope my work shows that. I am known for taking a fresh approach to art direction and creative strategy and working tirelessly to see them through.
