Sean McGahan

Art Director

Every SEM event is a brand. As SEM’s art director, Sean’s graphic design skills are the indispensable visual ingredients that creatively identify hundreds of street fairs and runs/walks produced by the company. With SEM for more than 13 years, it’s no exaggeration that he’s designed hundreds of logos as well as collateral pieces that include posters, postcards. brochures, advertisements and much more. Today, many of his creations are trademarked with copyrights used by both SEM and many of its clients. Sean also has vast expertise and knowledge of the latest design technologies and state-of-the-art hardware and software. Not only does Sean design, but he understands how graphics work in context of the final product be it print, websites or advertisements.
