Meet Arlo

Arlo has been working in the design and entertainment industry for over 10 years. After leading a small marketing office and working as Art Director for a creative team designing board games and packaging experiences Arlo went out on is own and found his space as a freelancer working closely with project managers and business owners to create innovative design solutions for products, product packaging, print and web based media.

He is responsible for product research, concept development, and design execution. This includes, but is not limited to, layout, graphic design, illustration, photography, asset and die line creation, and prototyping.  He was lead designer on several projects, including the Game of Thrones™ and The Walking Dead® Editions of Monopoly®, National Parks and Harry Potter™ Editions of Trivial Pursuit®, Back to the Future™ Edition of Yahtzee®, and Target Exclusives such as Blank Slate – The Game where great minds think alike, or the new, outrageous adult party game Privacy – The S#!t you wanna know, but never asked.

Arlo’s excellent customer service and problem solving skills help him see projects through from start to finish while effectively communicating with key players along the way.

When Arlo “unplugs” from technology he likes to spend his time outdoors with his family.

Passion Project

Responsible Craft – Environmental Friendly Bamboo Coasters

We’ve all seen the pressed cardboard coaster — they’re everywhere these days. Some of us collect them. Some re-use them a couple of times. But let’s be honest… 90% of the time they are disposed of, or your dog thinks they are delicious snacks when you’re not looking.

Waste no more! The coasters at Responsible Craft are built to last. My goal is to create a coaster that people resonate with, collect and keep around not just to protect your furniture, but to enjoy their beauty as a piece of art, and oh – yea – they’re environmentally friendly too!  Check out Responsible Craft for a custom set of coasters.
