Ignite Creatives was born after completing production on the feature film Reclaiming the Blade with Galatia Films in 2010 so I could continue to pursue online, video, and print development projects. Because visual media permeates nearly every moment of our days I wanted to delve into more diverse projects. My background in Graphic Communications includes feature film production, web design, and graphic design for print. As a lecturer for the Department of Graphic Communications at Clemson University, I continue to learn in each of those industry areas.
At Clemson, I currently teach courses in Photography, Video, Web Development. I am also extremely interested in entrepreneurship within the Graphic Communciations industries and spent a year interviewing entrepreneurs in these areas. From that research, a new, unique online class will be launched Summer 2014 focusing on Entrepreneurship in the Graphic Comm Industries (see promotional video below). Starting in the summer of 2013, I began working towards my PhD in the area of Digital Media + Learning in the School of Education at Clemson University.
I am fascinated with how the web is constantly morphing. Specifically, how SEO, analytics, viral content, and social media can be used to leverage small business advertising dollars and garner attention on the national stage.
Ignite Creatives provides a creative outlet for continued exploration and development of websites, online marketing campaigns, and online video solutions for customers both locally and internationally. Contact me today if I can help you grow your online presence this year!
Erica worked on a project of mine that required thinking outside the mainstream and was able to provide solutions from multiple angles that are incorporated into the business to this day. I would definitely recommend her for any web or graphic design work you may have.
