Drew Lettner is an art director, web designer, film nerd, and jiu-jitsu addict living in Milwaukee, WI. He loves bold colors, bolder women, horror movies, and writing copy in the third person. Drew Lettner lives by one rule: sometimes rules need to be broken. His second rule: never underestimate Drew Lettner.

Drew Lettner is authentic AF. He breathes the spirit of innovation, driven by his passion for learning as he intuitively adapts to new technology and processes—all the while ensuring compliance with corporate brand standards (even before it was the cool thing to do).

I studied Illustration at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design from 1999-2003 until I dropped out for personal reasons. I freelanced in the years that followed, taught myself communication design and started my own business with some friends called def perception in 2009.

In 2013, I enrolled at The Art Institute of Wisconsin, and earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Web Design and Interactive Media in 2017.

My professional experience culminates with a solid history leveraging strategic vision, business acumen, and creative leadership (with a dash of wit and humor) to deliver high-impact marketing + digital experiences across a diversity of industries.

I’ve proudly served on the board of directors for AIGA Wisconsin since 2015; leading the charge as Chapter President from 2017-2019.

I’ve worked directly with business owners, in-house corporate clients, partnered with agencies, and freelanced on the fringes of the industry.

Enough about me—I’d relish in the opportunity to hear more about your journey. You never know—we might one day embark upon new adventures, crafting the next great brand narrative together.
