When Mark was in elementary school, his teacher asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up. Without hesitation, he proudly proclaimed, “I want to be an artist!” His teacher looked at him sadly and said, “You can’t be an artist. You can’t make money doing that.” Little did she know that Mark would be undaunted in his pursuit to make his passion of art a career (and a profitable one at that!)
Mark has over 27 years of industry experience in Graphic Design, Creative Direction and Marketing Strategy. He has worked for companies, large and small, wearing many hats at each.
Nothing pleases him more than to bring ideas to life, whether the client has specific ideas, or getting to know the clients industry and personality; creating something unique and engaging that will stand the test of time. With several awards for Design under his belt, he secretly wishes he could phone that teacher and proclaim, “If you could only see me now!”
Mark and his wife have been happily married for 20 years and have two incredibly artistic children (no art-crushing dreams here, folks!) and resided in Western Washington with their children and 7 pets on 5 acres, lovingly referred to The Palazzo Zoo and Theme Park. They were excited to move to the Tri-Cities area and begin the process of removing the mildew that follows every Western Washington Transplant.
Whether you are looking for a stunning logo, web design, or need consultation on corporate branding, give Mark a call. Your project is yet another satisfying tally for Team Mark vs. Discouraging Grade School Teacher.
