What motivates me?

Creative. Brand. Opportunity.
Creativity and business goals are not incompatible.

It takes collaboration.

Playing well with others is more than being nice. It’s being inclusive and accepting differing viewpoints. The best creative solution is the endgame, not building a portfolio or ego.

Hi, I am Ken Drab. Thank you for letting me share my story in a more dynamic creative setting than just a resume.

I am a creative brand champion and loyalist. I am driven to bring ideas and identities to life, to ignite a passion that goes beyond the logo – to make it anything but “drab”.

What do I do?

Adapt. Aspire. Lead.
Never stop learning, creating, and mentoring.

Opportunity is everywhere.

Investment in growth fosters a higher level of performance, greater understanding, and dedication to company objectives, and nurtures relentless creativity. Enthusiasm is contagious.
