Brand architects cross the boundaries of traditional disciplines to provide innovative

and cohesive brand solutions. And they do this across a wide variety of mediums. 

Rick Seireeni

Founder

Rick Seireeni is founder of The Brand Architect Group and coined the phrase “brand architect”. The melding of “branding” and “architecture” began while attending the University of Washington School of Architecture and its Rome Studies Program. As a student, he was also an avid photographer and graphic designer. Rick’s first job was working for the City of Seattle team that saved the Pike Place Market from destructive urban renewal. Next was a role at Straight Arrow Books and Rolling Stone Magazine as an art director, followed by a move to Los Angeles to lead the Warner Bros Records art department. Over the last three decades, Seireeni has worked with some amazing entrepreneurs who have created Southern California’s most iconic brands, like Gotcha, The Little Door, Guess?, Quicksilver, Wolfgang Puck, Leon Max and so many others. All this led to a long collaboration with Tokyo friend and fellow brand architect, Sy Chen. Together, they went on to build brands for clients like Mitsubishi Bank, Uniqlo, Sony, ANA Airlines and the World Trade Center Japan. In the case of Uniqlo, Sy and Rick turned this little-known sportswear retailer into the fastest growing fast-fashion brand in the world — all in eighteen months. Today, Seireeni offers clients a results-driven formula designed to launch companies from zero to sixty with all the bases covered.
