Scott McMennamy

Art/Creative Director

Greensboro, NC, USA
I am a freelance art director, creative director, writer, graphic designer... an illustrator, prop builder and a producer. Or to put it more simply — your Creative Free-Agent. With over 25 years of experience at agencies of varying sizes, I have made the most of budgets both large and small, and have worked with just about every medium. My passion is in providing solutions... usually graphic solutions.

Bouvier Kelly

Associate Creative Director

Small, nimble, and resourceful— the nicer way of saying how we had to beg borrow and steal to exceed our own expectations. And by steal, I don't mean ideas and copyrights or things of that nature, it's just a figure of speech.

Time Warner Cable, Moses Cone Health System, FNB Southeast, BGF Industries, Guilford County Schools, Philip Morris, Action Greensboro, Pinehurst, Southern Pines - CVB

Long Haymes Carr

One could live off of the creative energy that flowed through the halls at LHC. We were the hot shop of the south. And pre dot-bomb, it was a great place to be.

CLIENTS:
Wachovia Bank, Thomasville Furniture, Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, R.J. Reynolds, Siemens Wireless, BellSouth Mobility DCS, The Music Maker Relief Foundation

Trone

Jr. Art Director - Art Director

I cut my teeth working on a retail jewelry account— churning out pages of thumb nails, boarding mechanicals, specing type, operating stat cameras, and doing color breaks... those useless skills of the trade that give me an appreciation for the craft of being an art director.
