After graduating, Weatherby-Webb moved to New York City to pursue a career in design with a focus on visual merchandising, packaging design, and marketing. He has worked for LVMH, Coach, Atelier Cologne, and L’Oréal. His love for the beauty industry and design landed him the role of senior designer at Arcade Beauty, where he further honed his skills. His graphic design work earned recognition for a variety of beauty brands while upholding their aesthetic and core values.

Weatherby-Webb is currently senior creative manager for Empirx Health/Wellness, and has launched his own line of t-shirts and sweatshirts, Lev Sant (live true). He married his husband, Robert, in August 2019. They reside in Brooklyn with their 9-year-old rescue beagle, Dutch.

Weatherby-Webb is thankful for his Daemen professors who challenged him to ask tough questions and to think critically.

“The professors in the art department were hands-on and always available for guidance,” said Weatherby-Webb. “I’ll never forget my discussions with Professor Allen about the human eye and painting/drawing from real life to truly find my artistic voice. I remember Dr. Watts walking by while I was painting an abstract image of a highway road and her giving me a thumbs up. It’s moments like these that motivated me to continue and to always work toward things I am passionate about.”
