Robert M. Davidson is a graphic designer and photographer with years of experience in political campaigns, direct mail, and strategic messaging.
As a graphic designer, he splits his time between freelance work and serving as creative director for brownmillergroup and Sloop Brewing Co. Aside from making labels for delicious beer, he largely works in progressive politics, and end clients have included Senator Bernie Sanders, US Congress Members and candidates including Charlie Rangel, Gerry Connolly, and Kumar Barve, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, labor unions including NYSUT / UFT and SEIU 32BJ, multiple Democratic State Party Caucuses, and more.
As a photographer, he regularly shoots everything from members of Congress to product shots to weddings. Recently, he has began shooting on film again after many years in the digital wilderness, and is working on a short film with his Arri SR3. His photos have appeared in publications including Thrillist, Time Out New York, and Hudson Valley Magazine.
Before focusing professionally on design and photography, he helped found and then worked at brownmillergroup as an account executive, where he managed production and design for millions of dollars in direct mail, created brand identities for clients, crafted campaign budgets and direct contact programs, and wrote, directed, and scored TV and web ads. Prior to joining brownmiller, he ran several local campaigns and served as the field director on a DCCC-targeted Red-to-Blue race in California.
Raised up and down the Eastern seaboard with occasional stints in the Middle East, Robert currently makes his home in West Philly. A graduate of Brooklyn’s Edward R. Murrow High School and the philosophy program at SUNY Purchase, he spends his free time making short films, playing music, reading arcane analytic philosophy that he finds largely absurd, and writing screenplays, short fiction, and essays.
