Greg’s aptitude and talent for graphic design was evident at an early age, but it seems evident that it all came to a focus in his senior year at Cumberland College in Williamsburg, Ky. After receiving considerable recognition for his undergraduate work, Greg was offered and accepted the college’s position of publications director in 1997. In that position, he soon developed the business, organizational and promotional skills that most “creative-types” abhor – but must acquire to move to the next level.
In 1999, Greg accepted an opportunity to move to the more technical side of the graphic and creative arts. As a prepress analyst and graphics support specialist for American Greetings Corp., he brought the unique perspective of a trained graphic designer and artist to the position, which provided for a heightened perspective for the work he contributed to at AG.
Since American Greetings, Greg has had the opportunity to train in a wide range of graphic production environments – from screen printing technologies to high-end color pre-press and printing. Subsequent graphics experience lead to additional acquired skill sets in advanced desktop publishing, Web design and digital photography.
As Greg’s career progressed in the years to follow, he became more immersed in the study and practice of creative marketing and advertising. Subsequent positions as a graphics specialist and creative editor allowed him to consolidate his skills at creative, design and production with the purposeful development of effective marketing tools for his customers.
Joining GrassRoots Marketing in early 2008, Greg made an immediate contribution to the team and clientele with his creative thinking, excellent graphic design skills and considerable knowledge of technical resources and imaging/reproductive techniques.
VIC acquired Grassroots in 2011, and brought Greg on as Creative Manager and established an office presence at the KHIC Center in London. It is at VIC where User Interface design, video production and web concepts were added to his portfolio. Ever since 2008, Greg has been active in participating in KHIC endeavors with small business owners and leaders. At the KHIC Center he serves as a ever encouraging team member to the other building tenants.
