Chad Trutt

My name is Chad. I’ve spent 10+ years creating incredible graphic design work. I’ve worked with small independent companies, national firms, and even the international MET Studio. Regardless of size, scale or geographic location, I know how to connect with a company’s mission and communicate a message that’s heard.

From 2011-2013 I was the Lead Graphic Designer at ISS Research, a sports nutrition company located in Charlotte, NC. I managed the development of the OhYeah! Nutrition brand, including social media, packaging/label design, marketing materials, print ads, web banners, retail display signage, MLB signage, and event graphics.

2011-Present I am a Graphic Design Adjunct Instructor for the International Academy of Design & Technology Online. Teaching keeps my finger on the pulse of the design industry, and allows me to invest in the new generation of designers. It’s a win-win as far as I’m concerned. I have taught Design Fundamentals, Design Process, Digital Illustration (Adobe Illustrator) and Digital Imaging (Adobe Photoshop).

I worked at MET Studio in London, England from 2007-2010 as a Senior Graphic Designer. I created environmental graphics, way-finding, directional signage, icons, branding, brochures, packaging, web and publication ads. Check out my international work here.
