THE MIND BEHIND MINDPUNCH
For the creative world, Ron Roark has a unique blend of talents. His passion for art combined with an entrepreneurial mindset give him the necessary drive to see a project through from start to finish. Not only does he have over 15 years of experience in creating innovative designs, Ron’s project management abilities make him a multi-faceted powerhouse of brand strategy, art direction and design. “I have a passion for the creative process,” he says. ”I enjoy thinking about, as well as helping others to see The Big Picture.”
Starting out as a graphic designer for Lenscrafter’s Corp. Headquarters in 1997, Ron soon moved to Nashville where he became a Senior Designer at Sony Music Entertainment (formerly, Sony BMG) – one of the world’s largest music companies. While at Sony, he earned two Dove Award nominations for CD packaging in 2002 and 2004. Since then, he has worked directly with country icon Garth Brooks on a number of projects, headed up art direction and design for Keith Urban’s Livin’ Right Now DVD, and has numerous other clients from music to non-profit companies… even in Australia.
Ron describes himself as a servant leader and someone who understands the importance of fostering successful client relationships. “I am a firm believer that communication is the key to success in all areas of life.”
When he’s not busy cranking out face-melting designs, Ron enjoys going to live shows, hanging out with his puggle dog Jack and rocking out to anything from 80s metal to Paramore.
