Justin Wardell

Sr. Account Executive - Intelligent Lighting Creations
Justin Wardell began his career as a freelance Lighting Designer and Technical Director, based in Chicago, but working across the country designing for theater and dance.  Some many wonderful organizations that Justin has designed for include Theatre Seven of Chicago, Springfield Municipal Opera, Porchlight Music Theater, The Building Stage, Clinard Dance Theater, Compania Aparicio, Las Guitaras de Espana, Live Bait Theater, and many other talented companies that there is not space to list here.
While Justin still designs for theater from time to time, his focus has shifted to commercial lighting, where he has had the opportunity to design in non-traditional spaces, historic venues, iconic Chicago landmarks, and contribute to art installations, TV, Film, trade shows, branded events, and more.
Currently Justin is a Sr. Account Executive at Intelligent Lighting Creations, where he collaborates with producers, designers, architects, and event professionals to develop creative lighting solutions for concerts, galas, fundraisers, live events, televised events, feature films, experiential marketing campaigns, trade shows, and permanent installations.  He has also been invited as a guest lecturer to institutions that include Columbia College, Northern Illinois University, North Park University, Roosevelt University, and the Illinois High School Theater Association.
