C. Forbes, Inc. is pleased to introduce the newest member of our staff. Effective December 1, 2016, Jason Fuller assumed his role as Artist/Designer. Jason’s talents will enhance our goal of designing and producing high quality custom products that meet the needs of our clients.
Jason has spent much of his life in Tuscumbia, AL, and will be based in his satellite location. While studying art at the University of North Alabama, he cultivated his life-long love for illustration and fine art. Classes in computer graphics led to a cleaner style with all of his work. As he noted, “my graphics began to look like my illustration style and my illustrations took on more graphic qualities.”
Service to Country
After college, Jason joined the U.S. Army Reserves and was deployed in Operation Enduring Freedom. Upon returning home, he married his wife, Candace, and began pursuing his career in graphic design. Now, as the married father of two young children, he is already busy soundproofing his home office. Jason’s previous experience includes that of Graphic Productions Manager at Lake Pointe Church in Rockwall, TX; Creative Manager at Lime Media in Garland, TX; Graphic Designer at Remington Arms Company in Huntsville, AL; and Marketing/ Graphic Designer at Life Data Labs, Inc. in Cherokee, AL.
Building a Knowledge Base from Experience
Jason commented that he “seemed to take away invaluable knowledge from these opportunities. Through them I became more fluent in how to couple my drawing skills with my design work. I began to create raw sketch style drawings with my clean graphics and create painted illustrations and concepts with digital tablet in Photoshop and Illustrator.”
Creative Director Mark Rhea
Jason’s contributions will complement the talents and expertise of our own award- winning artist, Mark Rhea. Since 2006, Mark Rhea has served as the in-house Creative Director for C. Forbes, Inc. and is an integral player in the design, creation and production of distinctive custom creations for our clients. With over 30 years of experience, Mark has a BFA in painting from Herron School of Art and a MFA in painting from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana. His credits include positions instructing and lecturing on painting and art; awards and recognition from the likes of the U.S. Department of the Treasury, the Franklin Mint Museum, and the George W. Bush 2000 Inaugural Committee. In addition, Mark brought to the table over two decades of experience working with various mints.
“A Dream Come True”
When asked what he enjoys most about the new role at C. Forbes, Inc., Jason said that it is the ability to utilize his art for a respected company that honors and promotes American family values. “There is a rich history with this company, and I get to work on a wide range of products and projects. Just one look at the website and I knew that this was the kind of company I wanted to be a part of. There was richness, integrity, and passion put into every product. To be a part of something like that and be with my family every day is a dream come true.”
