KEVIN JOHNSON DESIGNER
Kevin wanted to be a graphic designer since the third grade, when he created a cereal box for a class project. He continues the pursuit to this very day. In fact, half of his time at the grocery store is spent critiquing packages and naming the fonts that are used on various products.
Over the past 18 years, Kevin has worked with hundreds of clients on award-winning branding, digital and print ad design, illustrations, and so much more. He's always excited to start on the next project, whether it be a logo design, ad campaign, vehicle wrap, or whole new branding system.
When he's not designing, he's enjoying life with his wife (a fellow graphic designer), 2 kids, adorable dog, and a rather large (some would say unhealthy) Star Wars memorabilia collection.

NORM KELLY PRODUCTION DIRECTOR
Norm. Unique name. Unique guy. I wasn't very fond of my name growing up, but the older I got, the more I realized that it fit my unique personality. Often times I cut against the grain, challenge the "accepted" way of thinking, and try to look at things through different lenses. Turns out, that bodes well for what I do, which is to "create."
I've been creating audio commercials for a long time. It was always part of my job as an on-air radio talent, but it became my main focus several years ago when I became the Radio Production Director at Cox Media Group, Dayton. Now, rather than just voice a couple of commercials a day like most deejays do, I voice, write, produce, and create.
It's a challenging thing to constantly come up with new angles to promote a product or service, but it sure is fun to see it through from concept to completion.
UBALDINA OTTLEY ASSOCIATE PRODUCER
Born and raised on the beautiful island of St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, Ubaldina grew up in her family’s locally owned radio station. Little did she know, UB had an ear for audio and has written, voiced and produced radio ads locally and internationally. Now with an Associate’s degree in TV & Radio Broadcast and over 10 years of experience in Radio Production, UB is one of our audio gurus. She can take a basic audio track and turn it into a masterpiece that you and your clients are sure to remember.
