Connor Fleming
Creative Direction & Design

Mark







Connor Fleming is a creative director and designer with over 10 years of experience working in branding and advertising. He’s currently a Design Director at FCB as part of The Design Group in Chicago.




Background

Connor is a design leader who strives to lead by example and understands creative work is a team sport. At FCB, he helps lead strategic visual design projects for our clients with a specific focus on the health and wellness sector.

In his 10 years of experience, he’s helped build visual identities and brand platform systems for globally recognized brands and nonprofits, partnered closely with in-house client teams, helped win new business, and contributed to award-winning work. Above all, he’s been fortunate enough to work alongside and learn from some of the best people in the industry.

Curious by nature, he enjoys being a generalist who does a little bit of everything in his work — graphic design, branding systems, art direction, type design, digital experiences, motion design, and illustration. He believes simple, thoughtful design with strategic intent can solve problems for organizations, build relevant brands, and create meaningful connections.

Projects he’s been a part of have been recognized by industry award shows and publications, including: Cannes Lions, D&AD, One Show, Clios, London International Awards, Communication Arts, and Best of Ogilvy.
