Levine

AR / VR & Interactive Creative

About

My name is Jeff Levine, I'm a Creative/Design Director with a focus on Virtual and Augmented reality as well as Interactive and Experiential experiences.‍ For the past 18 years, I've been an integrated creative, working within all things digital and interactive. Originally from New York, I honed my creative skills by working my way up from intern to art director and thus eventually starting Fake-Up, A digital production shop. As a partner and creative director at Fake-up, I lead the small shop in creative and business growth by successfully beating out some of the more major production shops for key projects and campaigns. As Fake-Up grew in both size and success I drifted further and further away from the day to day hands on creative which eventually led me to a crossroads. At the intersection of continuing to grow Fake-Up or completely refocus on being a creative, I chose to close shop and move out west.‍Since moving to Los Angeles, I have had the opportunity to work with some of the top integrated shops in the city. I have worked with Tool of North America, The Famous Group, B-Reel, and Acne to name a few as Design and Creative Director. For the last few years, I have been freelancing as a hired gun of sorts working on all things digital and interactive from screen to physical space.
