Brad DeMarea

Brad DeMarea

Brad DeMarea, the latest director to join Quriosity’s expanding roster, specializes in comedy and visual storytelling in both commercial and film platforms.

As a filmmaker, he loves shining a spotlight on characters that are normally on the edge of the frame and is in constant pursuit of a memorable visual.

Brad’s career began as an award-winning graphic designer working with clients ranging from Coca-Cola to Prince Tennis to Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches and everything in between. For a brief time in Los Angeles, Brad worked on movie posters for the major motion pictures but mostly enjoyed designing one sheets for independent and foreign films. Brad’s love of the iconic informs his never-ending pursuit of unique visuals, quotable dialogue, memorable performances and humorous moments.

As a commercial director, he has shot for Trident Gum, Kraft Cheese, Can-Am Spyder, Whole Foods Market, Cars.com, The Chicago White Sox, and Stella Artois to name a few.



Brad’s award-winning short films have played at festivals around the country and is an author too. His graphic book of fake traffic signs, This Road Sucks and Other Street Signs We Really Need, is available everywhere super important and highly intelligent books are sold. Brad is married with twins, has fought cancer and won, and navigates each day with 1960s country music playing in his head.
