I come from a long family history of creatives in and around the advertising industry. My father worked in the creative department at People magazine, and my grandfather worked at Newsweek and was an illustrator for the Daily Mirror.
I am a hands on detail driven creative professional that has the ability to utilize any medium at my finger tips from pixels to print, Facebook to folds that engage the audience of the brands I works with.
I have developed innovative marketing/advertising campaigns and creative needs for brands such as Sony Pictures, Rainbow Media, IFC, AMC, WeTV, FUSE, Cablevision, NHL, 1-800-Flowers, Big Ten Networks, Bed Bath & Beyond and EPIX HD to name a few.
My work has been published in Graphis magazine as well as many other publications and has been on display at the Art Director’s Club in NYC. My awards include Graphic Design award, Long Island Digital Awards, BOLI awards as well as others.
Where to start about Andy... he knows enough context about seemingly everything to cut to the hearts and minds of people, their business and interests. He brings a level of creativity and passion to his work that I found unparalleled to others. We tapped into Andy's skill-sets to help us boil-down very complex issues and facts into a one-pager that was easy to digest. The work products he shared were of excellent quality. EY has on-boarded Andy and HitState to support with any projects where we need his insights, guidance, and creativity.

HitState helped us roll out a complete company wide re-brand with great success. From our new logo design to our new website, we are extremely happy with the results. Andy and his team were professional, responsive and most importantly they brought a level of creativity to the process that we were lacking. We are now moving on to outbound marketing and trade show exhibits. We look forward to continuing our work with HitState and certainly recommend them for any business needing their services.

I invited Andy to speak to my Marketing Networking group recently to talk about branding. His presentation was knowledgeable and thorough. Many of my group members thought it was well done and allowed for a lively discussion. I'd invite Andy again to speak if the opportunity presents itself.
Larry Drago - Marketing Manager beyerdynamic, inc.
I hold the Office of President for The New York City/Long Island Chapter of The New York State Commercial Association of Realtor. I was introduced to Andy in 2017 and asked Andy for a quote for building our Chapters new website. Andy was competitive in his quote and it was his attention of service that had me decide to go with his firm. He was timely and professional and turned out a great product.
Jack Britvan - Owner, Commercial Realty Services of Long Island
We worked with several different marketing companies until we met Andy. He guided us every step of the way and took the time to explain what really resonates with prospects. In over thirty years of working alongside marketing professionals, Andy is the best I have ever seen. His energy level is only surpassed by his creativity. You can instantly feel that Andy truly loves what he does as his passion comes through time and time again. Andy was a great find for our company and has contributed to our success in so many ways and is still doing so. Thanks Andy!

Andy designed the logo and branding for Dr.Bwell, and has helped my practice in more ways than I can imagine. He's creative and detailed oriented, which makes him great at what he does. I always consider using Andy first when I'm in need of web design and company branding.
