Identity33: Design that Makes a Difference
It's always a joy to put an entrepreneur into the spotlight. If you are looking for someone to help you identify the essence of your brand - the spirit behind your business - and translate that into some stellar communication pieces, then you need to check out Chamber member Identity33.
Identity33 is owned and operated by Brad Thomas. He has been a full-time, self-employed graphic designer for almost three years now. Brad graduated from IU in 2000 with a BA in Graphic Design. Since then he has worked for notable companies including Chamber member's Paint the Town Graphics, New Process Corporation, and Do it Best Corp.
Sometimes, though, you just have to take that next step - the deep plunge into the sometimes scary but always rewarding world of, well - being your own boss! Brad says:
"Back in 2007, I took a course at IPFW offered by the Small Business Development Center called Entrepreneurship in the Arts. That was the beginning of my journey into becoming a full-time, independent graphic designer. I love the freedom and variety of projects that being a solo designer provides."
Now Brad works full time with his own company. He is also a Continuing Studies Instructor at IPFW, teaching the use of creative design software.
I encourage you to check out Brad's Web site. If you're looking for branding help, it will help you understand who he is, and answer a lot of questions for you up front. Also, you can check out his portfolio, as well as his blog. If you are a small business or an entrepreneur yourself, unsure of how to start this process, call Brad at (260) 580-0099 or email him. He'll sit down with you, get to know you and your business, and go from there!
