In high school, Garrison spent his after-school hours taking design classes at a local community college. This passion for visual communication led him to Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design and Interactive Media. Garrison is now continuing his love for effective and creative communication as a designer for Team DG.
Garrison is always working to create visuals that build up a unique, unified and recognizable presence: something crucial to the making of a great brand. You can often find him bouncing ideas off others to reach the strongest solution for clients, something he says he particularly enjoys. When he’s not creating visuals, Garrison produces his own music, a pastime he uses to collaborate with other talented music-makers.
