Welcome to Ricky Irvine’s Professional Web Page With Links and Information.

Hi, welcome to my web page, I hope you like it. Here is some information about my career which may interest you. For about 15 years I have been working in graphic design, web development, and videography. From a young age, my parents encouraged me in the graphic arts and served as living examples in entrepreneurship. I remember well, manning our Main Street bookstore with the wooden shop sign my dad built and my mom painted and hand-lettered. Looking back, such a career as I have pursued seems an inevitable culmination. Over the years I have been afforded to work with many small and large businesses, entrepreneurs, organizations, conferences, musicians, artists, filmmakers, and photographers. Some of my own photography has been published in books and marketing materials across the country. In 1996 I earned an art award from my seventh-grade art teacher. In 2004 I finished a degree in Graphic Design and promptly began working for the low wages and high expectations that this kind of work is valued at. I have worked within freelance and pro bono freedoms and in the shadows of pointy-haired bosses. And I remember fondly my time spent in the bowels of a printshop with ink-stained tradesmen, where I acquired the skills which helped me later when signing deals with their sales reps. Since 2010 I work full-time for the American Printing House for the Blind in Louisville, Kentucky. I’m interested in things like writing and publishing, husbandry, traditional hand-tool woodworking and other old world crafts. Each year, just for the fun it affords, I test my color perception.
