Tyler Riewer is the Creative Director at charity: water, a $100M nonprofit organization rooted in innovation and transparency. Charity: water uses data and storytelling to connect donors to their impact and dream up new ways to think about sustainability in the water sector. As of today, charity: water has funded 91,414 projects to bring clean and safe water to 14,762,215 people around the world. Tyler leads a brilliant team of designers and storytellers who are working hard to reinvent charity. He also has the incredible privilege of traveling the globe capturing stories about their local partners and the people they serve.

Tyler studied Advertising and Journalism at the University of Nebraska and then kicked off his career at youth marketing agency Archrival, writing copy for brands like Red Bull, Hormel, and Pabst Brewing Company. Years later, he made a Lewis-and-Clark-esque journey out to the Pacific Northwest and found a new home at Grady Britton, creating content for local favorites like Bob’s Red Mill, Dave’s Killer Bread, Travel Portland, and Nike. In 2013, Tyler made an even bigger jump from for-profit to nonprofit and joined the charity: water team in New York City. Today, he lives (and works remotely) from the Washington, D.C. area.
