Patrick Crowley is a creative director and consultant whose graphic design and art direction has been acknowledged by The Society of Publication Design and American Illustration, among other organizations. His love of bold typography and candy-hued colors has brought life to projects for Billboard, Guitar World, RCI, Kraft Foods, Publix and many other established brands.
Crowley's unique skill set expands past that of a creative director; at Billboard, he founded a highly successful LGBTQ channel, resulting in the brand's first GLAAD Media Award. Through that experience, he launched a massive Love Letter campaign where a-list stars like Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez, Britney Spears, Elton John and over 100 others penned letters of appreciation to the community.
As editor, he developed and managed high-performing social media channels. The Billboard Pride Facebook was the brand's fastest-growing social channel ever, with 100K followers in just over six months. He executed a redesign of Instagram stories, causing follower growth to jump 1900 percent (from 200 to 4000 new followers weekly). He also conceptualized and directed Spillin' the Tea, a drag queen roundtable video series — Billboard's most viewed series to date.
