Creativity As An Act of Service

On my podcast RUN THE LAYERS with Creative Bobbie, I ask my guests six questions surrounding the topic of creativity. One episode featured my friend Torrence, who described creativity as a way of solving a problem or providing a service. His response inspired me to write this blog post about seeing creativity as an act of service for the greater good of others.

A logo can typically fit in a particular classification of logos. Let’s look at some examples from my own portfolio.

Inside The Mind of An In-House Designer

A solo ep where I talk about my experience being an in-house graphic designer here in Stillwater, Oklahoma for Kappa Kappa Psi & Tau Beta Sigma National Headquarters. Being in-house, for me, means being able to apply my knowledge and translate my love for the organizations into visually appealing and communicative art. As an in-house designer, I personally know and care about everything I do. It’s not just a job for me.
