Hi, I’m Chad.

Husband. Father of 3. Designer. Geek. Commercial Artist. Print Broker. iPhoneography Hobbyist. Positive Manipulator. Developer. Smarty ; )

Chad White I’ve been in this industry for a little over 18 years, developing my first website, at 13, for a Tallahassee based wedding photographer. At 15, I was hired by the Leon County School Board – Division of Teaching & Learning, to design, develop and maintain their department website, through the OJT/DCT program.

Since then, I’ve worked with several different industries, through almost every avenue of marketing; ranging from a Government Agency to an All Natural Sports Drink to an Alaskan Hunting Guide.

I don’t just spit out graphics & designs, I help businesses & people bring their ideas to life. This isn’t just what I do, it’s become part of who I am.
