About Dean Cole Design

Dean Cole is a Graphic Designer and Illustrator from Ottawa, Canada who has been creating designs as a professional graphic designer for 8 years. Currently, Dean is a Web Producer for Rogers Media in Canada, and creates content for Rogers ROCK and Country Radio stations.

After graduating from the Algonquin College Graphic Design program in Ottawa, Dean went on to work for an Industrial Design company where he got his first taste of User Interface design and developed over 400+ icons and modifiers for an Emergency Communications software as well as concept User Experience planning for mobile apps.

The work at the time was starting to dwindle, so he moved onto his own freelance design company (Dean Cole Design) to create all things for media. Dean created logos and designs for longboard/skateboards, t-shirts, websites, band merch, and also an album cover. When it became harder and harder to find work, Dean eventually started to work for a started company that absolutely screwed him over and he’s been trying to recover from the damages ever since, but after that mishap, he was offered a job doing graphics for the Mobile game Blokus from Mattel. Afterwards, Dean ended up creating graphics for 2 other mobile games outside of the company and inevitably wound up working in digital media for radio.

After being laid off after 6 months at Bell Media, Dean started working for Rogers Media and has been there ever since, creating content, motion graphics, and all sorts of great designs that are shared across the entire country.

In his spare time, Dean likes to play video games, design t-shirts and graphics, and hang out with his wife and 3 cats.
