Real Art welcomes Helen Weselcouch as the newest addition to our team. She is a Designer/Producer Hybrid working out of Real Art’s New York City office where she hopes her range of professional experience will help her excel in this challenging role.
Torn between the creative and the logical, Helen moved to New York City in 2008 to pursue a dual degree in Design and Business Management from Parsons the New School for Design. She has since worked in graphic design, planning, business development, and project management across multiple industries.
Helen enjoys working in fast-paced environments where she can combine all aspects of her background into finding solutions. Sitting directly between “right” and “left” brained, she looks at problems from multiple angles and is always looking for a new approach.
In 2008 Helen was honored with the Outstanding Arts Award by the Connecticut Association of Schools. Most recently, one of her essays was selected for publication in “Conversations on Art,” a collaborative textbook due to print in 2015.
Originally from Fairfield, CT, Helen has figured skated since age four and can often be found singing from behind a piano. She is especially passionate about art, literature, crossword puzzles, and cheese.
Real Art welcomes Kyle Rarey as the newest addition to our team. He is a PHP Developer working out of Real Art’s Dayton headquarters. Contributing his extensive background in application development and web media to the Real Art DNA, Rarey looks forward to joining the team in building all things kick-ass and never-before-seen.
Rarey joins us from Wright State University, where he spent the past four and a half years in various roles helping the institution redefine its approach to online learning. Rarey holds an undergraduate degree in Computer Science from Wright State University, and attended the Film/Video program at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, as well as the Visual Communication program at Sinclair Community College here in Dayton.
Rarey loves combining computing and video, utilizing his experience in both worlds to create engaging, interactive experiences. He’s also fascinated by all things web, with special interest in python web frameworks, streaming media, and game development.
When not brushing up on the latest application frameworks and and web media standards, Rarey can be found dabbling in 3D modeling, playing video games, and driving fast cars.
Morrison loves what she does because she believes that web and mobile platforms are the pipes that bring information to the world. She never tires of learning new technologies and hopes to make significant contributions to society with the power of code.
Originally from Mt. Prospect, Morrison resides in Skokie. When she’s not learning about web development, she likes reading nonfiction books, watching dark dramas, and listening to R&B, Highlife, and Soca.
From mid-August to mid-September, we gave away a new Real Art-made item every day on Twitter. Shipped-out with a pirate twist, these prizes were claimed by a hoard of social media followers. But what about the swashbuckling creatives behind these prints, posters, and paintings? Here’s the inside story on a few of those prizes, directly from the Real Arters who made them.
Real Art welcomes Josh Frederick as the newest addition to our team. He is an Account Executive working out of Real Art’s Dayton headquarters. Using his experience as a designer, project leader, and product developer, he will be ensuring maximum connectivity between our client’s needs and wishes and the broad talents of Real Art.
Frederick earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts with a focus on Graphic Design from Miami University. He joins us from the Huffy Corporation where he spent 8 years as a Designer, Senior Designer of Packaging, and most recently as Associate Product Manager.
Frederick loves working with multi-faceted teams because in those environments, amazing things happen. He’s traveled the world, both for work and for pleasure and finds connecting with people to be the heart of human experience. He sees design as a way of thinking, not an outcome of thought.
Frederick grew up in Dayton and loves the fact that he’s working downtown (again). He’s a sports junky, especially when it comes to football, soccer and basketball. He is a database of useless information and a self-proclaimed geography nerd who can’t see a map without stopping to take it in.
