Blake leads the Lava7 design team with extensive experience in art direction, advertising, graphic design, and social networking tools. At Brigham Young University he worked as the Creative Director for The Ad Lab—the program’s student agency where he competed in the international L’Oreal Brandstorm competition. Blake’s team won both the national and international competition, competing against 39 other countries. Blake rocks design (and is really modest). So, we have to point out that one of his recent designs is featured on every McDonald’s Happy Meal in the world—and, some of his work for Extra Gum appears in Rolling Stone Magazine ad this month. Blake interned at both DDB New York, and Leo Burnett Chicago—both coveted agency gigs.
