Brian Cornell

Creative Manager

I'm thrilled to be the Creative Manager for SSBC. With more than three decades of experience in branding, packaging, and visual communication, I continue to be inspired by the ever-evolving ways we connect and engage.

My journey through various industries of ideas has been an exciting one. I've worked in university settings, corporate environments, and creative agencies, each providing a unique perspective and helping me refine my skills.

For the past 20 plus years, one of the most rewarding aspects of my career has been the opportunity to collaborate with the incredible Summit team. Together, we've tackled countless creative challenges and have witnessed the brand's continued evolution firsthand.

Beyond my professional life, I have a deep passion for exploration and adventure. Traveling is a part of my DNA, and I've been fortunate enough to explore 40 states and 20 countries to date. Each destination brings inspiration and often finds its way into my creative work.

When I'm not at the desktop, you will likely find me outdoors. My favorite pastimes are spending time with my family hiking, biking, gardening, and learning new things. There's something rejuvenating about being in nature that fuels my creativity and keeps me grounded.

Reflecting on my younger days, a friend and I embarked on a memorable adventure by riding bicycles from Minneapolis to Aberdeen, South Dakota. It was quite the journey as we battled the westerly winds the entire way. We accomplished our goal AND learned a valuable lesson: ride WITH THE WIND whenever possible. Collaborating with Summit is like riding with the wind at your back.
