PAPA Advertising names a new Lead Graphic & Web Designer–Quinn Thompson


After an extensive search, we finally found our guy, and we couldn’t be more excited to introduce him to you. Meet Quinn Thompson, PAPA’s newest Lead Graphic & Web Designer. Quinn is an Edinboro University grad with a degree in Graphic & Interactive Design. Post-graduation, he moved to New York City and immersed himself in the city’s experience-driven design scene, working for an international creative communications agency. He gained a wealth of experience at a rapid pace working on projects for well-known brands like Mercedes-Benz, Royal Dutch Distillers, Siemens, General Electric, Perfumania, ZF Motorsports, and local companies like Penn’s Hemp and Mel’s Mobile Diner. Quinn is well versed in everything from logo/identity design, brand standards development, publication design, 3D visualization (modeling, special event/tradeshow booth design, logistics, and setup), interactive design, retail store design, visual merchandising, signage, package design, and website/interactive application design. …That is a long way of saying; this guy does it all. His passion for making things, ability to see a problem from all angles, and a killer sense of humor are just a few of the things we admire about him and know you will too.
