ABOUT ME

Prior to founding UrbanEx Design I spent six years as the head (and only) Visual Ninjaneer at a large insurance agency. I managed their multiple websites and created marketing materials such as postcards, magazine advertisements and banners. I graduated with honors from the University of South Carolina with a major in graphic design and minor web design.

The focus of UrbanEx is to create unique, beautiful and functional projects. Whether it be web design, log design, print projects or photography UrbanEx will make your creative visions come to life.
