Adam Rouse, AIGA Member Since 2008
Account Executive, Belk Printing Technologies
How and why did you get involved with AIGA? Approximately how long have you been involved with the organization?
Fall of ’08. AIGA is the perfect organization to meet and befriend Charlotte’s design community. Graphic designers like to challenge and be challenged - creating those intriguing print projects that generate traffic for their clients. As an account executive with Belk Printing Technologies, I find the most joy in working closely with my clients to offer solutions and fresh ideas that can help to make their designs the best they can be. Certainly, repeat business, i.e. monthly and quarterly publications, are key for maintaining sales volumes, but it’s those unique, first run projects that make my career so enjoyable. Add to that, getting feedback that a new project or campaign was successful at generating the desired end result, well, that excites me!
What’s your proudest accomplishment?
Twenty-four years of marriage to the same girl and raising my children to see it.
What’s your secret talent (big or small, silly or serious)?
Musician. Soul, gospel, funk and jazz are my favorite styles. I have big fun playing saxophone and singing with my band mate friends of Summer Daze Band most weekends. From jazz standards to the latest pop tunes we cover it all.
If there is karaoke at the next office party, what song will you be singing?
Boom Boom Pow (Black Eyed Peas).
What would people be surprised to know about you? That a 46-year-old, gray-haired dude can sing Boom Boom Pow and actually sell it!
What is the best purchase you’ve ever made?
We moved into our Barclay Downs home in ‘93. There’s simply nowhere else in Charlotte we’d want to live. The back yard is our peaceful refuge complete with a shady patio, two cats and bountiful, luscious organic veggies and flowers.
