I’m Glynn (full name Glynn Galvante Selesnick) and I’ve been providing graphic design and marketing services for clients in the U.S. and U.K for over 15 years. I’ve been fortunate to work in the most fun industries – restaurants and beverage. Clients come to me with bold brands that need an eye-popping visual message and marketing smarts to keep ’em wanting more.
My roles are varied. Depending on the project, I may be the creative director, or the marketing consultant, sometimes even copywriter. For other projects I may roll up my sleeves and grind out the design myself. Whatever the case may be, any team I assemble includes only my most trusted colleagues.
In 2008 I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, which was treated and cured with relatively minimal impact on my long term health. But this event gave me serious pause about my health and what I could do to make sure my body would cooperate with the plans I had for my family’s future. Fortunately I had the experience of living in Rhode Island near a wonderful local farm, and when we joined their CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program I started to really get excited about plant-based food. Food that is nurtured with the expertise of generations of farmers who care about the health of their customers because they are neighbors.
Through the years my passion for food has driven my work, and it’s no coincidence that my chosen clients are in the business of elevating the culinary experience. I am certain that the best experiences in life happen around a table, and that eating better can change the world.
I live in Carlsbad, a city in the northern section of San Diego county, California, with my husband and two goofy/ridiculously beautiful kids. Growing up and living in Southern California means I have a laid-back approach to life, but I’m a fierce driver on the freeway. I also use the words “awesome” and “dude” with no apologies.
When I’m not designing or spending QT with the family, I grab any time I can for my other passion in life, ballroom dancing. I currently study and compete in the American Rhythm style of dance (most people think of it as Latin style). My instructor and ProAm partner is the great Peter Edwards of Synergy Dance Zone. Dancing is the other creative side that keeps me balanced. It also comes in really handy to have some moves ready when “Uptown Funk” comes on and a flash mob spontaneously erupts. It hasn’t happened yet, but a girl can dream.
