Hi, my name is Anthony Savage and I grew up in Franklin, Indiana which is about 30 minutes south of Indianapolis. I graduated from Ivy Tech Community College in 2012 with an Associate’s degree in Visual Communications. While at Ivy Tech I interned at EmployIndy working on their Business Development email newsletter and developing content for future campaigns. I’ve spent the better part of the last decade working as a Graphic Designer for designiQ. While there I worked on digital advertisements, marketing emails, and landing page designs. Next, I spent a year working at Reynold Farm Equipment as a Digital Marking Specialist where I worked on everything from t-shirt designs for the state fair to relaunching/rebranding their e-commerce parts website. I am excited to continue my career and grow my knowledge and skills with Nextfly.
I got started in graphic and web design by being part of the local music community. I’d played in a few bands, also had several friends playing in other bands, and became known for designing flyers, websites, logos and other graphics for bands. As it became more apparent that being a musician wasn’t a viable career choice I decided to go to school and develop my skills more.
Outside of work I love creating things. I’ve played guitar since I was 12 years old and I draw whenever I get the opportunity. I collect comic books, vinyl records, and musical instruments. I have over 200 comics, 100 vinyl records, two acoustic guitars, 2 electric guitars, a bass guitar, and a mandolin. My favorite comic book series is the original Constantine series and collect comics from anything to Ghostbusters to Batman. Many of my drawings reflect all the different interests of mine. Beyond comics and music, I love movies, especially old horror and b-movies. I’m a lover of all things creepy and I believe it’s obvious the more you get to know me.
I currently live in Southport with my wife and 5-year-old son. I’ve coached my son’s t-ball team for the last 2 years and plan to continue to do so. I spend a lot of time playing Pokémon Go with my son because he’s in love with the game. My favorite Pokémon is Hawlucha but my son thinks I should like Slaking more because I look more like it. On the weekends you can find us around the city battling gyms and raids to catch rare Pokémon.
I am very excited about joining the Nextfly team and growing my knowledge of web design and development further.
