Cameron Cariffe was born in Ohio and transplanted to San Antonio at age 5. He grew up at the edge of the Texas hill country and developed an appreciation for live oaks, rocky, brush-covered terrain, and cold, clear rivers.
He showed a talent for creativity at a young age and continued to excel in art through high school. Cameron headed North to Lubbock where he received a BFA from Texas Tech University and was awarded the Liquitex Excellence in Art University Award, granted to one graduating senior each year.
After graduation, he spent a year in Aspen, Colorado where he skied, snowboarded and mountainbiked between stints as a nanny, burger chef, and picture framer.
He then moved to Dallas, bought a Mac, and began learning to use technology to be creative.
Cameron has 12 years of experience in graphic design, marketing, and web development. He has worked with clients such at GSK, Eli Lilly, P&G, Shire, EDMC (The Art Institutes), Frito Lay, Fossil, and Southern Methodist University, among others.
His work has been honored by the Dallas Society of Visual Communications (DSVC), the Art Directors Club of Houston (ADCH), and the South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive Conference. His work has appeared in the national publications Cowboys and Indians and Create Magazine.
Cameron lives close to White Rock lake with his wife Alexa and two boys, Anton and Lucien. When he's not playing with his boys or working on the house, he enjoys early morning runs at the lake and an occasional 5, 10, or 15K race.
