Founder & President

Digital Image

Digital Image is a large to grand-format, highly specialized printing firm with production facilities in Savannah, Georgia.

Digital Image was honored with 2003's Small Business of the Year Award, recognized by the Georgia House of Representatives, and subsequently went on to work with the Sea Island Summit Planning Committee, the GSA, and international media participants for the G8 Summit meeting hosted by President George W. Bush at the Cloister on Sea Island, Georgia, and the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center on Hutchinson Island, GA. Special events, sporting events, and corporate branded sponsorships are areas of specialized 'experience design' expertise.
