Kentucky Chrome Industries is Greg Franklin.
Kentucky Chrome really has nothing to do with the state of Kentucky whatsoever, nor the production of that precious metal known as chrome. Based in the greenest place in the entire known universe (Seattle, Washington), Kentucky Chrome is the “nom de plume” and brain child of Greg Franklin, a graphic designer, copy writer, social media consultant, musician, and all around fan of the world of art, words, music, and speaking in the third person. Kentucky Chrome has served as Greg’s freelance design outlet since the late 90’s, when he figured out that staying up until 4am at Kinko’s cutting and pasting photocopies was actually how some people made a living.
Kentucky Chrome offers a full service graphic design studio, capable of print and web design, copy writing, photography, video editing, and music composition. Our clients range from Fortune 500 companies to small start up businesses, from Grammy-winning musicians to local bands. Look at our portfolio section for examples of the work; we like to think that we are constantly changing and evolving, and we love the excitement that comes with working with as diverse a group of people as possible. I guess you could say we’re “jazzed”, but that might just be the coffee speaking. Kentucky Chrome Industries relocated to Seattle, WA from Kansas City, MO in August 2008, and we still freak out a little when we see mountains, large bodies of water, or members of Mudhoney milling around the city.
Our bigwig corporate client list includes (but is not limited to):
Microsoft, T-Mobile, Burger King, Sprint, Payless Shoe Source, Cricket Wireless, Bushnell Optics, 826 Seattle, KEXP 90.3 FM Seattle, VML, Egg, Neverstop, and many others.
Musical entities that we have done work for include:
Pearl Jam, KEXP, The Showbox, Soul Asylum, Rogue Wave, Sasquatch Music Festival, Limbeck, Wordless Music Series, Cursive, The Casket Lottery, Giants Chair, Sonic Spectrum, Centro-Matic, Black Heart Procession and many others.
We’ve also won 3 ADDY awards for our copywriting work for Burger King.com in 2007. So, that’s something.
Speaking in the third person is fun, huh? We think so. We promise we don’t send emails in the third person unless otherwise requested to.
