Steven Sasseville is an American designer, illustrator, speaker and creative leader. He has been making and creating „things“ for more than 20 years. Steven believes that a broader vision helps break the silos of conservatism. He feels that „blending art, music, design, literature, history and technology leads us toward stories that captivate, inform and delight.“
As CEO & CCO he is responsible for leading the creative day-to-day challenges of Orange Hive in Frankfurt. Steven’s goal for the agency is to help inspire customers and tell their story in an artistically disruptive and authentic way.
„There is no singular process. Being empathetic and listening reveals the essentials or truths needed to push their brand into the desired direction. Strong brands are built by authentic and committed people, willing to move to change.“
