About me

Originally trained as a Medical Illustrator, Danko has branched from this discipline and built up his skillset beyond most conventional creative role criteria to become a human multi-tool. Identity developer, brand manager, art director, visual designer, craftsman, strategist, teacher, artist and eccentric, Danko now identifies simply as a 'Creative Monster.'
