ABOUT:

asheville-graphic-designer-dan-gretta-design.jpg

Dan has worked at a variety of agencies specializing in anything from advertising to packaging in industries including music, cosmetics, hospitality and alcohol. Over the years, Dan has narrowed his focus to anything branding and packaging.

While he is open to just about any project, he primarily works with smaller companies and start-ups, where he is able to work closely with that company to develop a brand story and strategy. Dan received a BS in Graphic Design Communications from Philadelphia University back in 2008. A couple years later, with a desire to explore other cities, he relocated to Boston, and then the Bay Area a few years after that. He currently resides in Asheville. Outside of design, Dan enjoys running, biking, camping and playing music.

He will never turn down a craft beer or pulled pork sandwich.
