My name’s Angie McRoberts and I’m an artist and designer from New Carlisle, OH. I’ve been a creative person my whole life and can’t imagine myself in any other field. In high school I attended the Miami Valley Career Tech center, and with the help of some inspiring teachers and friends, I learned the ins and outs of graphic design and commercial art. I spent one year at the School of Advertising Art, then decided to change my major to fine art. I got my Bachelor’s of Fine Art degree from Wright State University, concentrating in oil painting, and a graphic design certificate from Sinclair Community College. When I’m not at Four Ambition, I teach art classes at a local craft store, I do freelance design, and I work as a face painter. I also love sewing, knitting, drawing, photography, you name it! I’m so thankful for my job at Four Ambition. I work for a great company, with great people, making great things. One of my favorite artists is the post-impressionist Vincent van Gogh who said, “I am seeking, I am striving, I am in it with all my heart.”

Welcome SAA extern Brent Williams

My name is Brent Williams! I am a second year student at the School of Advertising Art. I grew up in Huber Heights, Ohio my entire life. I went to Wayne High School where I took a class called Interactive Multi-Media where I was taught the basic of Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. This was where I realized I wanted to be in the field of design. I learned about SAA from a presentation we had for my class and from then on I knew that was where I wanted to go! So I started at SAA right out of high school and at first I realized I was very good a photography and web design! So over the course of the last two years I have honed in on my skills of design and photography to become the designer I am today! Some of my hobbies include gaming, designing and coding websites, and portrait photography!

Welcome SAA Extern – Sarah Dunaway

 

Hey! My name is Sarah Dunaway. I am a second year student at the School of Advertising Art in Kettering Ohio. The main goal I have planned for myself as of now is to become a graduate from the School of Advertising Art at the end of May 2013. Currently I am working as an extern at Four Ambition. Being here is a wonderful opportunity for me, and I am very excited to be a part of the crew for a few weeks. Since I can remember I have been interested in photography and arts. My Junior year of high-school I discovered graphic design, and fell into an even deeper fascination. Although I must say I was a little nervous at first, as soon as I started to see what I could do, I felt right at home. I am so grateful to have found a field that is so absolutely perfect for me. Growing up in South Charleston Ohio, I attended Southeastern High School. After my sophomore year, I transferred to Springfield Clark Career Technology Center for Multimedia Production. Here is where it all began, and how I found out about the School of Advertising Art. Over the past couple of years attending SAA I have developed much skill in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. As a side note, I love animals of all shapes and sizes, and nature in general. I pride myself on being a dependable, and honest person. As a hybrid designer, I will always strive to produce the best work I possibly can on every occasion. Last but not least, my strongest belief is that as a designer you should never stop learning. The world is full of knowledge, and it is yours to take!

Travis Runyon


Hello! My name is Travis Runyon and I am a 2010 graduate of the School of Advertising Art. Lets see, a little about me… Well, I am a graphic designer who has a passion for all things creative. I’ve worked on a wide range of design projects, both freelance, and as an employee. I have played music since I was 12, I spent most of my youth playing shows all around with some of my best friends. I have been fortunate enough to tour with some long time friends of mine (This Love) helping out shooting video, selling merch, experiencing some of the most fun times I have ever had, doing radio interviews, making new friends, and various other fun things. I have my own 4 color screen printing press with the ultimate goal of running my own printing/apparel company eventually. I have been very lucky as to be able to work with Four Ambition and learn all things related to screen printing, I can’t say enough nice things about everyone here! Feel free to contact me with any questions you have, or add me on Facebook and lets be friends!
