Rahmin Eslami

VP of Creative, Hornall Anderson

Rahmin Eslami is the Vice President of Creative at Hornall Anderson. As capable of bringing ideas to life as he is bringing life to ideas, he has made an impact on a number of global brands, including, Abbott, Bank of Nova Scotia, Ethicon Endo-Surgery, GE, Johnson & Johnson, Michelin brands, Pepsico and Procter & Gamble. 

The consummate ENFP personality, Rahmin strives to make people feel things through branding. He believes that conceptual ideas drive better design and that emotion is a powerful vehicle for impact. To him, true communication comes about at a deeper level than what is sometimes readily seen or heard – and he’s been known to keep digging until that level is reached. 

Rahmin’s work has been recognized by the Business Marketing Association, American Advertising Federation, AIGA, PRINT magazine, and Graphis. Additionally, he served as the president of the Cincinnati chapter of AIGA from 2004-2007.
