We’d like to offer a warm (and humid) welcome to Ridge Chin, the latest addition to the design squad here at [ 2 one 5 ] Creative.
With his graphic design diploma from Drexel University fresh off the press, Ridge brings his youthful spirit and passion for design and typography to his new role as Junior Graphic Designer at [ 2 one 5 ] Creative. With past experience gained at gaming statistics company OverStats Inc. and web design firm Home Source, Ridge brings unique branding and web design skills to the [ 2 one 5 ] table. As the sole designer of Home Sources’ team, he will be no stranger to sharing his own creative ideas for projects, which is just what we’re looking for in all of our hires.
“When we first saw Ridge’s work, what jumped out at us was his balance of work,” said Nikolas Greenblatt, Founder & President of [ 2 one 5 ] Creative. “When adding to our team, versatility is high on our list, and we feel Ridge can work comfortably in a variety of styles.”
Said Creative Director Kris Blake, “I had the pleasure of meeting Ridge at Drexel’s Senior Show, and his work is spot on both in terms of where we are now and where we have the potential to evolve to.”
“It’s exciting for me to start my career at [ 2 one 5 ] Creative,” said Ridge. “I’m looking forward to working with and contributing to a passionate team that can help me grow as a designer.”
When Ridge isn’t spending his time looking up typefaces, he is thinking about watching Formula 1 (thanks to his recent viewing of the Netflix documentary, Formula 1: Drive to Survive). He WRITES IN ALL CAPS and types in all lowercase, and we couldn’t be happier to have him on our team.
