Welcome to Black Unicorn

Hello and welcome! I'm Brenton, a brand manager and marketing director from Los Angeles. I currently spend my days as the Senior Director for Digital Media Content with a nonprofit organization, and freelance as a branding specialist and creative director for a multitude of clients. I am passionate about building communities, leadership development, and LGBTQ inclusion.

My career has included working for clients that range from micro businesses to international corporations. I have produced award winning and published work for businesses in the fashion, beauty, entertainment, sports and defense industries, with clients that cover everything from heavy metal bands, to hair care products, to private intranet solutions and weapon systems for the
Department of Defense.

I create lifestyles around your business.

I use expert storytelling to forge the bond
between your brand and your customer.

With over 12 years of experience as first a graphic designer, then an art director, and now a marketing director, I have had the honor and pleasure to work on some of the highest tier brands in the outdoors, hunting, & shooting sport industries. My career has always held to a wonderful dichotomy between working as a civilian contractor for the military and defense industry, and exploring creativity and counter culture with my music, fashion and beauty clients.

My most recent experience as the Senior Director for Digital Media Content for one of the largest nonprofit organizations in the country has given me the insight and personal touch required to create compelling and engaging content across a wide range of social media platforms and outlets.

I have a deep passion for leadership and team building, skills that I have honed through continued education and participation in leadership development programs and volunteer work. I have a lifestyle obsession with athletics and fitness, teamwork and personal growth.

Brenton Chapman

Web Content Developer, Brand Manager, Graphic Designer, Unicorn Enthusiast


I am a brand management and marketing specialist with a 360 degree view of design, production, marketing, and team leadership.

I lead teams to create and deploy marketing strategies for international brands such as Glock, Ruger, Smith & Wesson, Colt, as well as government agencies including the FBI and Homeland Security. My teams of freelance designers and developers produce world class advertising campaigns, identity guidelines, product design, packaging, and enterprise level websites.

I manage projects, deadlines and budgets using landmark point strategies.

The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.
