Alumni Successes: Going the Extra Mile

WRITTEN BY: lfunke

Mike Gribble is a creator. He has always been and noticed it especially when he looked back on his experiences and realized he’s been artistic since high school. Each job he landed, he found himself working creatively to complete each task. Even working for Southern Trophy House, he was tasked with designing Advertising Awards for local and national ad agencies. He decided to take control of his life by going back to school and earning his Associate Degree in Interactive Graphic Design. He graduated in the Spring of 2017 and now has other goals to accomplish. How did you get into Graphic Design? Have you always been creative?  I got into graphic design working for Southern Trophy House without even knowing I was doing graphic design. I was engraving and doing sublimation for customers like The Tennessee Titans. Sublimation works by creating a layout then printing it, reversed, on a special heat-resistant paper. The heat-resistant paper is taped to the surface of the item you’re wanting to have sublimated – usually brass or aluminum. It’s then placed under a heat press for 30+ seconds at around 380 degrees when the printed ink turns from liquid to a gas and is transferred onto the material.

LGBT Chamber Foundation Unveils Logo Design by Nossi Graduate!

WRITTEN BY: lfunke

The Nashville LGBT Chamber’s sixth annual TASTE fundraiser will be on Sunday, November 19th in Nissan Stadium’s West Club. Event proceeds provide educational, networking and community-building opportunities for the organization’s LGBT members, businesses and allies.   The LGBT Chamber unveiled a new TASTE logo at their Brewing Up Business networking event on August 22 at Nashville Education, Community, and Arts Television (NECAT). The new logo was created in partnership with Nashville’s Nossi College of Art, a professional art school encouraging students to get involved and give back to the community through their creative talents. Elisabeth Hunt, a summer graduate from the Graphic Design Media program created the logo in conjunction with Nossi College’s All Access office. Nossi All Access helps give students real-world experiences while in college.     Libby Funke Luff, Director of Marketing and Student Activities, shepherded a committee comprised of members of the LGBT Chamber’s marketing committee, a board of directors and members through the creative brief process starting in June 2017. “We recognized our largest annual fundraising event did not express the experience that attendees were experiencing and sharing,” said Ron Snitker, Vice-President of the Nashville LGBT Chamber. “We are ecstatic this new logo conveys the journey guests experience as they TASTE their way through Nashville’s top tastemakers with food and beverage tastings and an exceptional silent auction. Every year there are surprises.”   VIDEO OF THE LOGO UNVEILING (fast forward to the 9:50 mark for the Nossi introduction)   TASTE, the Chamber’s sixth annual signature event, features food and beverage…
