Stuart Laybourne

Creative Director

Stuart joined the Lone Peak team in 2017 through partnership with Redirect. He is a graduate of Arizona State University’s Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, where he received a Bachelors of Science in Design in Graphic Design with a minor in Business. While finishing school he worked as one of two designers for The Fiesta Bowl where he helped lead art and creative direction for the organization’s 40+ events. After graduation, he worked for over four and a half years at R Squared Graphic Design and Advertising, a Phoenix graphic design studio, where he directed art and creative projects for over 50 local and national clients. Most recently he spent over a year at a Salt Lake City startup venture, Experticity, where he led the marketing creative and product UI for the company’s products.

Stuart believes that powerful creative design paired with captivating storytelling provides the medium to engage users and elicit change and action. But, above all, he advocates that brands talk to people like actual people, not robots or marketing committees. When he isn’t enveloped by creative thought, you can find him utilizing his excessive height advantage on the basketball court, or having his nights and weekends ruined by his pathetically-inept, but still beloved, Cleveland sports teams.
