A graduate of Auburn University’s department of communication and the Art Institute of Atlanta, Chuck is a designer, brand builder, creative director and web maestro adept at nimbly bridging the gap between raw creativity and effective process. His firm, Huie Creative, was born from an observation that within the branding and design marketplace there often exists a disconnect between big-picture thinking and flawless digital execution.

There Chuck cultivated award-winning brand experience, creating identities for Natural Body Spa & Shop, Shepherd Center, and IDI. He also developed some serious design chops while in residence—and a streamlined web process and standards system. Chuck’s won multiple accolades for annual report creation, websites, logos and branding work, and has worked with a diverse client list that includes Coca-Cola, AmericasMart, Ackerman & Co, and Partin Law.
