Founder / Executive Creative Director
Art instinctively called out to Glassell House founder and lead creative director, Xavier Savant, from a young age, as he immersed himself in his father’s comic collection. That love evolved into a passion for art of all kinds and lead Xavier to a BFA at the renowned USC Roski School of Fine Arts.
Eventually, he broke into the industry by designing promotional materials for Virgin Records’ recording artists Timbaland, Tank, and the final album of late superstar Aaliyah.
Before founding Glassell House, Xavier held senior creative positions at Ventura Distribution, Urban Works Entertainment, Art Machine and Trailer Park Inc. and was a driving force behind campaigns for multi-million dollar films, brands, and video games alike. Now, armed with nearly two decades of expertise, he and his art collective are building and evoking emotional connections to brands and blockbuster franchises worldwide.
