Cheryl Savala

As a seasoned Creative Director, I’ve designed and illustrated key art and packaging campaigns for hundreds of film and television blockbusters, including “Titanic,” “X-Men,” “Moulin Rouge,” “The Sound of Music,” “Planet of the Apes” and “The Star Wars Saga.”

While I continue to create illustrative work primarily for the entertainment industry, I equally enjoy my role as a college professor, mentoring artists. It’s a privilege to have helped place 150+ designers, illustrators and motion graphics artists in the entertainment marketing field. Not only have these individuals found their dream jobs and launched thriving careers, they’ve also gone on to earn hundreds of Clios as well as license and publish their work through Fox, Disney, Marvel and more!

I’m proud to stand beside passionate artists and inspiring educators who embrace their creative voice and build rockstar-level careers.
