Caleb has always shown artistic talent, but he had just entered High School when he expressed to me his interest in exploring a career in a creative field. He asked me to begin conveying to him my classical art and design training, so we began with the fundamentals of light and shadow, color theory, sketching, solid typography, perspective drawing and much more. Gradually our conversations shifted and focused in on illustration, graphic design and entrepreneurship.
When Caleb told me his plan to launch a new design and illustration studio and then offered me the opportunity to help him with his business, I jumped at the chance.
Caleb is honest and he cares about people. He’s very succinct, but he also has this quiet humor that’s really great! He’s an excellent listener and he’s learning what it means to work hard.
Caleb is scheduled to graduate from the Digital Media and Software Development program at the Knox County Career Center in June of 2017. In his (little) spare time he tends his saltwater aquarium, makes some really great photos of nature and cooks. His speciality is this succulent baked salmon with garlic and citrus — it’s REAL good.
Justin graduated from Columbus College of Art and Design in 2004. He has over 10 years of experience on a wide range of design, marketing and branding projects. He has worked on everything from seasonal packaging for billion dollar fashion brands, to designing logos for small businesses and completely rebranding local non-profit organizations.
Justin has always been a true and caring person to me. He's not just a brother — he's a friend. I wanted to pursue a creative career, but it was hard knowing what specific path I wanted to follow. In 2013, when I asked Justin to teach me, he helped me experiment and eventually discover the path to follow. To this point in my career development, Justin’s expertise and diligence have played an integral role. It was clear he was invested in my future — he wanted to see me succeed. Justin became a mentor to me.
Justin is honest and pursues truth zealously. He works very hard at all he does. He lives in historic Mount Vernon Ohio with his wife Rachel and 4 young children and in his spare time enjoys photography, playing board games, hiking and building with Lego Architecture Studio.
Justin assists with our projects as needed, providing art direction, design services, brand expertise and a sharp eye for excellent typography and sophisticated color palettes.
