Design / Creativity / Delivery
Robert is an artist. He drew comic books as a kid (horribly, he says), but the dream stayed alive after he won a prize in a Star Wars-themed drawing contest.
With his degree in graphic design, Robert’s career morphed. Much like the science fiction characters he follows for entertainment, he has transformed a love of art and sci-fi into visual and digital design consulting. Working in manufacturing and a variety of professional services environments, he has the rare gift of understanding traditional art theory as well as the technical complexity of website development. From custom html sites to simpler WordPress interfaces, Robert endears himself to owners and marketers by troubleshooting and solving many web design and digital campaign issues.
Mostly, he loves collaboration — learning what clients like and don’t like about colors, fonts and images. Robert then gets busy building a concept with Ingenuity’s team that provides clarity for professional logos, palettes and identities. From seeming chaos, he calmly pursues the answer for a unique brand every time.
When he needs inspiration, he might turn on a favorite movie or game, or go for a long hike or bike ride. He’s logged thousands of miles, but there’s always another path to explore. Another adventure.
