Meet Brad Fransen

I created this personal/professional website on a whim. I wanted people to know me on a more personal level.  Resumes don’t give you much information other than a sequential description of jobs and a long list of accomplishments, some that you even achieved. 

I am a father of two beautiful daughters. They are my finest work. I try to spend as much time as I can with them. When I am not working or with my daughters, you can find me at any of the below locations:

  • On a mountain, on a trail, probably lost, on a horse or on blistered foot. 

  • In one of my boats, cruising in the “Harba”

  • At my historic cabin working on some project that should have been addressed twenty years ago. It snows up to eight feet a year. I shovel. Lots. 

  • Feet up on a couch, deep in a book

  • Camera in hand, taking a photo from somewhere I don’t belong. Ah, just to get that perfect shot!

  • Restoring something. My current project is a 1947 teardrop trailer. My wife says it is too small.  To sleep two, you really gotta be in love! 

My Work

I have been a professional chef. I’ve been a corporate salesperson. I’ve been a sales manager, a business owner, a published photographer and I have pushed a broom. I have been a professional marketer for over a decade.  Whatever I do, I do it with passion and commitment. Each job has given me a unique perspective about work.

Much of my work with past companies has been branding related. I have created brands, brand standards, logos, fonts and imagery. I am very project focused. I have launched eCommerce websites, intranets, developed Point of Sale and kiosk systems and have coordinated large corporate product launches and shows. 

Here is a sampling of some of my most recent projects.

      

Photography A fleeting moment caught in time

My love affair with photography started when my Grandmother gave me a small box camera–the one with the big flash reflector and bulb (that’s before digital and electronic flash if you are confused). I began to enjoy writing at the same time.

During recent trip to New York, I visited Chelsey market, a historic landmark converted to a mall. It is now filled with quaint retails shops. There is a daily bustling crowd. As I passed a long hallway, I caught the eye of a man tending his shoe shine stand. I took a photo. For me, In one simple image, I captured the essence of New York. The photo alone tells a wonderful story.
