The Sketch Effect is a team of talented creatives dedicated to elevating ideas through remarkable visual communication.
Founder and Principal, Live and Video Artist
A passionate believer in visual communication, William’s primary task is to ensure The Sketch Effect is delivering the best possible visual communication solutions to its clients. He’s the standard-bearer, sketch ambassador, and visual communication evangelist, on a mission to elevate ideas. In addition to running the business, William still likes to get his hands dirty (with marker ink, of course).
Animator and Editor
Brandon is the main animator and editor at The Sketch Effect, using his considerable skills to masterfully bring Sketch Effect videos to life for some of the best clients in the world. If he comes across as quiet, it’s just because he’s contemplating the next mind-blowing technique he’ll use to make the next Sketch Effect video the best Sketch Effect video. …Or he’s contemplating Burritos (#AnimationFuel).
Live Artist – Atlanta, GA
Ross is one of The Sketch Effect’s Atlanta-area Live Artists. With two impressive degrees (in Engineering and Industrial Design) and a wealth of creative skills (illustration, animation, writing and design), Ross combines his right and left brains to create amazing work. Three years ago, Ross left his corporate job to pursue a creative career and hasn’t looked back. Fun fact if you ever talk to him: He survived an airplane crash!
Live Artist – Dallas, TX
A Dallas native and true Texan, Em spends her time riding horses and enjoying the great outdoors. As a talented animator, Em brings a sense of motion and fluidity to her live sketching. Although she loved studying Art in both California and Georgia and serves her freelance and Sketch Effect clients all over the USA, the Lone Star State will always be home. Fun fact: Em grew up on a real ranch!

Whether it’s helping clients find the perfect visual communication solution, implementing brand-building initiatives, or just spreading the word, Jonathan’s focus is towards the future. A native Texan, you can find him and his Georgia peach wife exploring new restaurants or new countries.

A Pennsylvania transplant and recent Atlanta resident, Allie is an illustration all-star. Combining influences from Miyazaki, Disney and variety of children’s book illustrators, Allie brings a whimsical, warm and personable style to Sketch Effect Whiteboard and Animated videos.
