The thing I enjoy most about my role is getting to collaborate with so many talented designers, developers and strategists who challenge me to hone my craft on a daily basis.

The best designs don’t just catch your eyes and stimulate your senses—they draw you in and encourage you to learn more. With a background in User Experience, Mason knows that good design balances function and form. In his role at CHIEF, Mason brings this user-centric approach to the execution of print and interactive design materials. He works cross-functionally to collaborate on all parts of the creative process, from ideation and problem solving to design and production. It goes without saying that Mason brings high-level conceptualization and user interaction consideration to every piece of creative he gets his hands, and eyes, on.

Mason earned his BS in Architecture from Virginia Tech.
