Once upon a time, in Chattanooga, Tennessee, my great grandfather and namesake, Charles Card, owned a diner and on warm busy days to make more room for customers, he would move his countertop register onto the outside sidewalk.
When patrons were finished with their meals, they’d walk out and Charles would ask:
People figured that since he expected honesty at checkout, he himself must be Honest.
After selling the diner, Honest Charley founded Honest Charley’s Speed Shop in 1948. The catalog business became the South’s most influential supplier for Indy racers and hot rod enthusiast.
The Shop made its name on much more than providing high quality auto parts, with an imaginative logo and quirky catalogs that Honest Hisself designed by hand.
Hi there! I’m a designer who specializes in web and motion graphics. Currently, I’m a Junior at Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York and will be graduating in 2015 with a degree in broadcasting. I’ve built my web portfolio by designing and developing online brands and websites for a broad range of professional clients. As a digital journalist, I’ve designed, edited, and produced interactive narrative pieces for Ithaca College’s newspaper, The Ithacan, winning national awards for individual content and for the newspaper’s overall website. Right now, I am actively pursuing interests in data visualization and cartography, producting an interactive web application in partnership Ithaca College and Ohio University. Within my major, I’ve been transferring my real world design experience to produce animations and special effects for films.
My lifelong goal is to see as much of the world as possible. I haven't been everywhere, but I'll get there.
