JEWELL PR CREATIVE SERVICES

History 

Vernon Jewell began doing business as Jewell PR Creative Services in June, 2012. A severe car accident in 2009 left the future in doubt, and the TBI (traumatic brain injury) raised questions if he would be able to work as an artist professionally again. As apart of the recovery, Vernon Jewell began creating t-shirts, coffee mugs and other novelty items through on-line stores such as Zazzle and Red Bubble. Vernon Jewell was awarded a few small contracts under the brand name Jewell PR Creative Services doing in-house graphic design on a retainer basis for Allergy 123, then Aspire IP Law Group.

In 2010, Vernon Jewell returned to school to earn a Bachelors in Digital Media Design at Colorado Technical University. Returning to school allowed Vernon Jewell to learn to manage the challenges of living with a traumatic brain injury and to manage the responsibilities of working under deadlines and punctualities of school. There are lasting effects, but most are manageable.

Jewell PR Creative Services continues to offer assistance to businesses that need photography, video or graphic design assistance to help grow their branding market reach.
