Before opening the doors to Christie Fountain Advertising, Inc., in 2007, I spent fifteen years helping clients like you succeed from both the in-house and agency sides of the marketing table.
On the agency side, I sharpened my creative execution skills in copywriting, design and broadcast production for a variety of clients from utilities to banking, hospitals and media. As an in-house Creative Director for Caesars Entertainment, I provided advertising creative direction and execution to seven casino resort properties across the mid-south from Caesars Indiana to Bally’s New Orleans.
At Blossman Gas, Inc., I developed marketing plans, promotions and provided in-house advertising agency services to the 11th largest propane dealer in the U.S.A., supporting over 70 retail offices in eight southeastern states.
Today, I’m ready to put those skills to work for you to help your business succeed. Thank you for considering us as potential members of your marketing team.
Before joining Christie Fountain Advertising, I designed for a local golf pro shop in Beaumont, Texas, where I also received my BFA in Graphic Design from Lamar University. There I developed my skills in photoshop, illustrator and photography for online e-commerce applications.
My love for design is equally shared with a passion for illustration, and I was chosen as illustrator for two self-published children’s books. Most recently my work has been recognized with ADDY awards in 2011 and 2012. I am excited to be part of the creative team here and I look forward to adding my eye to your projects as part of your extended team.
