Put your hands together for Planet’s newest Art Director and sandwich fiend, Casey Christian.
While Casey may be new to Planet, Planet is not new to him. He says he has been aware of Planet’s work since he was old enough to realize that advertising and design were real jobs. He’s done time in agencies in all of the M-based Midwestern advertising cities – Milwaukee, Minneapolis, and now Madison. His work with Planet clients like Pancheros Mexican Grill and World of Beer has been thoughtful, fresh, and impactful. He’s also doing yeoman’s duty on our internal social media initiative, which requires deft cat-herding skills.
Casey comes from Cascade, Wisconsin, population 617 or 618 depending on which direction you roll through town. He displays a similar comfort with shifting cultural landscapes as his hometown does with its census information – he indulges in the supreme Wisconsin arts of Packer Backing, supper clubbing, and bear hunting, while also embracing the most Madison of activities like marathon training, Bucky Badgering, and food cart eating. Though in one regard, he bucks cultural expectation: Casey prefers Monona Terrace to The Memorial Union Terrace. Proof that there’s a first for everything.
