About Brandon Ortwein

Bio: (2014)
Brandon Ortwein (for he is bortwein) is a fine-arts graduate from Longwood College with a BFA in Graphic Design. He grew up on the US East Coast but is now hailing from the US counter-culture stronghold of Austin, Texas. When not hanging out with his wife and daughter, he’s working on design projects both at home and work, and is always finding inspiration in “the random world around me”. Currently, he is working as the Proprietary Creative Designer for Golfsmith International designing golf product and packaging for such brands as MacGregor, Lynx, and Snake Eyes. Brandon started out his design career in the tech industry designing web pages for inner office communications and then later moved into the advertising field where he did work with clients like Motorola Semiconductors (later to become Freescale), AMD, SAP, Target, Southwest Airlines, and Texas A&M University MSC OPAS just to name a few. While Brandon built a career in design he also took his freetime to develop the bortwein design name as well as find a love of t-shirt design and internet music. bortwein has been printed 6 times at Design By Humans, 4 times at Threadless (which includes a Gap Kids selection), as well as many other design wins at other t-shirt sites out there. His t-shirt designs have also been printed in two t-shirt books including the 10th Anniversary Threadless book by Jake Nickell and TORSO T-shirt Graphics Exposed by Gestalten (edited by Daniel Eckler).
