Meet our dedicated staff.
Introducing Clara Mulligan, the CM of Claradise.
+ Director of Design at Sid Lee Amsterdam
I started in the graphic design field at the early age of six as Owner and CEO of “T-shirt World," a puffy paint T-shirt business. Years later, I received my MFA in Graphic Design from Rhode Island School of Design, graduating with honors. Upon landing in Seattle, my exuberant style, multi-disciplinary approach and focus on creative story-telling have been put to good use, creating design and art direction for clients such as Zune, Nike, Microsoft, K2, HBO, Rossignol, and Electronic Arts. Looking for a change, I formed and ran my own graphic design firm, which specialized in identity and interactive design.
Running a business turned out to be too much business, so I joined Creature, directing and crafting story-driven design. I have a simple approach that allows me to develop insightful and original work, unrestricted by medium or category. During the last decade, my creative and design direction has helped reinvent coffee for Seattle's Best Coffee, revive 100 year old pants for Dickies Workwear, and create a 50 year vision for the Space Needle by reimagining the visitor experience, among a slew of other design and advertising based projects. Recently, I moved to Amsterdam with my family to be the Director of Design at Sid Lee. I've been working on a Special Edition bottle for Absolut, re-evaluating the customer journey for The North Face European retail and designing the world's happiest day for Pocky. In addition to creative work, I lead and manage the design department at Sid Lee Amsterdam. My work has been featured in Communication Arts, Print Magazine, Under Consideration, Behance, Brand New, the FWA, Ad Week, Creativity Online, Computer Arts and AdAge and recognized by The One Show, D&AD, Type Director’s Club, Webby Awards, Awwwards, Art Directors Club, and Graphis. I was honored to be included in the Business Journals' 40 Under 40 for creative leadership in business.
