Shawn Gentry was integral with the creation of blu Electronic Cigarettes as a member of the core development team from day one. As Vice President/Creative Director for Intermark Brands, Shawn lead the team who not only created the blu Electric Cigarettes brand, but also the product design, packaging, initial website design and advertising campaigns. I would recommend Shawn as a Creative Director or Marketing Director position. He brings a passion and enthusiastic work ethic with him to every project and seems to thrive on tight deadlines and pressure to succeed and show results.

I highly recommend Shawn Gentry as a strong creative force. Shawn recently gained business from my firm to redesign several of our graphic interfaces.
