Richard Gee Jr.

With 20+ years experience specializing in business to business strategy and communication, Richard founded Gee Creative in 1996 and serves as creative director and chief strategist. Recognized in the 2005 class of 40 Under 40 local business leaders by The Charleston Regional Business Journal, Richard holds degrees from Baylor University and Atlanta’s Portfolio Center.

An unashamed perfectionist, Katherine found her calling in graphic design, where she happily spends her time tweaking each logo, website and photograph until pixel-perfect. Blending a psychology degree and a passion for creativity, Katherine's bliss is working with clients to translate big ideas into visual compositions that define, refine and enhance opportunities for success. 

Away from the office, Katherine can be found drawing, gardening, volunteering at a local safe house, or doing her best to corral her 3 young daughters. Along with her husband and daughters, Katherine lives in Goose Creek.

Ashley Foote

A keen eye and insatiable appetite for beautiful design led Ashley to the creative field where she wields a mouse, Xacto and CSS (often simultaneously) with impressive precision. With a degree from Auburn University (War Eagle!) and extensive experience gained during her time at Greenville’s Bounce Agency, Ashley delivers a fresh perspective to both client relationships and each of her projects. Gee Creative’s resident photographer, Ashley is equally comfortable behind the camera as she is tackling a complicated photo retouch, website solution or tasty packaging design.

Contributing remotely, Ashley balances work and motherhood (shout out to daughters McCartney and Ava!) from Charlotte where she and her husband are currently renovating their Southpark home.

Spunky, inquisitive and ever-loyal, Buster is an undeniable extrovert making him often the first to greet guests at the studio. Convinced he is human masquerading as a spirited Boston Terrier, Buster possesses the uncanny ability to walk upright on his hind legs, especially if there's a belly rub or treat involved. His skillset includes sniffing, sleeping, snoring, running in circles and frequent, rank flatulence.
