Behind the Art and Soul of what we do

Our initiator


Growing up in a beautiful rural Appalachian town, Founder and Creative Director Michael Blevins was always curious, innovative, and creative. Discovering commercial art in high school, he recalls the words from his mentor and art teacher, Mr. Smith, who described it as the “evil soul of all things creative,” He became instantly obsessed.

A journey in search of all things creative

Graduating from high school in 1987, Michael left his small hometown for the bright lights and big city of Atlanta, Georgia, to study commercial art and visual communications at the Art Institute of Atlanta. He was immersed in the world of consumer behavior and the “big polished scene” of advertising.

He learned early on that influential commercial art and advertising worked because they were not only highly creative, but at their core, they catered to consumer behavior and relied on demographics to captivate a precise audience.

Ignoring the cliche saying “It’s better safe than sorry” and fresh from graduating, Michael graciously declined a position with Coca-Cola Company in the advertising department and decided to make a new home in Raleigh, NC, which at the time had just been rated as a top city to build a career. Michael’s goal was to immerse himself in real-world experience and hone his skills and talents, with a clear focus on establishing his own high-end design studio.

Setting out for his vision, Michael took a position at Corporate Solutions, a well known state-of-the-art design and service bureau company. Within a few short years, he accepted the lead Art Director’s position. In this leadership role, he further perfected his craft of design, printing, and post-production methods. With his creative guidance as Art Director, Corporate Solutions was recognized in prestigious industry design magazines for outstanding achievements and techniques, receiving awards and recognition for Blevins off the rails unconventional printing methods.
