Executive Trustee Member Bio

James Garvin, Forming Brands

I always wished for something better than the normal design or advertising business, where personal interaction is paramount and the interests of clients are put first. After graduating from the University of Florida with a Bachelors of Fine Art in Graphic Design I worked for a few local and regional firms. During this time I worked on projects for Coca-Cola, Holiday Inn, and major real estate developments throughout the southeastern United States.

Since Forming Brands was founded in 2007 I have enjoyed helping other businesses fulfill their potential, seeing ideas realized, and knowing the work I do makes a difference. I approach every project as an opportunity to go beyond the necessity of graphic design and realize its potential to improve the client and consumer relationship. A businesses brand, and marketing need to be centered around a simple yet unique message that separates them form their competitors I love helping to find this message and using it to unify the ways a business interacts with consumers. I always look forward to the next project, its challenges, being creative, and doing good work for good people.

I started Forming Brands as a way to form the great relationships that allow everyone involved to achieve their best. I grew up in Orlando, Atlanta and now live in Jupiter with my wife Elizabeth and dog Barley, we all cheer for the Gators!
