A.D. Cook Graphic Design Services

I’m a multidisciplinary designer experienced in working with clients on a variety of projects including corporate i.d., logos and branding, collateral, advertising, large graphics and internet design.

Examples (shown)

  • HOLLYWOOD VIDEO — During my five years as Hollywood Video’s creative director (1989-1994) I designed their logo and all collateral design while hand-painting dozens of large-scale wall murals. I created all their packaging and designed the prospectus for their initial public offering.
  • GEO GRAPHICS — Although a competing designer, I created their logo and presentation materials.
  • CRIMSON TRACE — For years I handled all of Crimson Trace’s design including their magazine advertising needs.
  • BOOK DESIGN — From concept-to-completion, I can create you book and make it press-ready.
  • IWATA-MEDEA — As the primary designer for Iwata-Medea, I created much of their packaging and magazine designs along with their brochures and collateral needs.
  • PIAA — Collateral design including all brochures and multi-page catalogs.

A.D. Cook is an internationally recognized veteran designer and artist whose career spans decades. He’s a self taught master, learning his craft at a very early age. He developed many different disciplines including graphic design, drawing, painting and photography adding airbrush to his repertoire 35 years ago.

In the late 1980’s through the 90’s, A.D. was the early marketing force behind the fast-growing Hollywood Video stores (Hollywood Entertainment Corporation), based out of Portland, Oregon. He created their corporate identity and brand and designed the look-and-feel of their first stores while painting hundreds of large-scale murals of movie stars and celebrities during his five year tenure as their creative director. His successes with Hollywood Video led to a career as a marketing and art director for a number of other widely recognizable brands including PIAA, Crimson Trace Corporation and Iwata-Medea.

Today, he has broad recognition as a pioneer in the airbrush world. His original paintings have been featured on the covers and in the pages of magazines, trade journals and books. He has taught art in workshops and colleges. A.D. Cook’s original paintings on canvas and metal are internationally recognized masterworks. He has exhibited his originals and reproductions in art galleries from coast-to-coast and was well received at ArtExpo New York 2007. While a variety of art genres appear in his portfolio, figurative paintings are his specific focus and expertise. He’s been commissioned for a number of paintings for a discreet clientele.

A recent filming for a Playboy Chanel episode of their new series “King of Clubs” features A.D.’s body painting prowess. For the episode, he hand painted ten Palomino Club dancers. Each dancer carried a theme like “Daisy Duke” or “Dominatrix” then they were filmed “working” the club in their new body-paint. It was a record-breaking evening for attendance in the club’s recent history. Body painting has been one of A.D. Cook’s specialized talents since 1982.

Also an accomplished figurative photographer, A.D. has received numerous Showcase Awards.

Residing in Las Vegas, Nevada, A.D finds inspiration in the flood of imagery and the stimulating pace that permeates the city.
