Hi! I'm Mark.


I was born and raised in Edmonton, AB, went to Arizona State University, spent 7 years in Indianapolis, IN and presently live in Boston, MA.


I'm an Art Director at Complexly, an online media company that focuses primarily on educational videos. I've had the chance to work on the launch of a number of channels including mental_floss (2013), Healthcare Triage (2013), Art Assignment (2014),100 Days (2016), Eons (2017), Origin of Everything (2018), and Microcosmos (2019). My role varies from show to show, but most consistently, I've created all the graphics and associated identity including titles, graphics templates, wordmarks, and channel art. 


I also do freelance work and have had the opportunity to work on range of both local and international clients including (but not limited to...) Central Indianapolis Community Foundation , Well Done Marketing, Target, Bloomingdales, and 20th Century Fox.


Most of my professional work is in motion design, but I've also started taking aerial photography and video and have received my commercial drone certification.

During downtime, I like to keep making things and have started posting on Dribbble.


Photography has always been a great way for me to express myself. I'm on Instagram, but you can also find high-res and downloadable photos on Unsplash.


If you've got a project in mind, or have any questions about my process, please feel free to reach out! My email is mark@olsenvideo.com.
