    Chuck Huie

    • Huie Creative
    • 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. This ideology was born during a short stint with top Atlanta firm Wages Design and honed while at brand powerhouse The Jones Group (now Brand Fever). 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. Huie Creative currently focuses its efforts on helping agencies in law, real estate and beyond look, sound, and perform brilliantly on the web and in print.

    • What Runs Where
    • I spent several years working in finance, the nonprofit sector, and consulting. I got into building websites as a side-project and eventually started my own company. I'm a data geek and analyst before anything else, and I love making things run fast. When I'm not working, I tap dance, play with my dogs Karma and Kazi, and drink an inordinate amount of coffee and tea. I absolutely despise eggplant.
