ROBRADY design welcomes Robert Donovan and Jason Garvale to staff

Sarasota, FL (PR Web) March 3, 2011 – ROBRADY design proudly announces the addition of Robert Donovan and Jason Garvale to our studio. As Design Manager, Donovan will oversee day-to-day design activities while Garvale will work with ROBRADY’s graphic and interactive design team. Their expertise and experience will continue to keep ROBRADY a leader in innovative design.

As Design Manager at ROBRADY, Donovan manages the daily activities of the studio. Donovan came to ROBRADY from Techtronic Industries, where he was the brand manager for the Ryobi TEK4 line of electronic tools. Prior to that he built and managed the in-house design team at Griffin Technology, the world's largest Apple accessory brand. Donovan was drawn to ROBRADY by their ‘Research to Reality” capabilities: "I ran across ROBRADY after reading an article about their work on the XTools products and knew I wanted to be a part of their team. I was impressed by the level of innovation and detail that they applied to their projects and the fact that most of their work involved taking products all the way through to production. I like to see products I work on successfully launched into the market and ROBRADY has an excellent track record of doing just that." Donovan has an Industrial Design degree from Auburn University and has spent the last 17 years building and managing award winning design teams.

Jason Garvale has joined ROBRADY’s Graphic Design team. Garvale came to ROBRADY from Sarasota Magazine, where his responsibilities ranged from publication design to client collateral. He also has done freelance work in the area. After attending Syracuse University, he worked for a multi-service design firm in Los Angeles. Jason was excited about joining the ROBRADY team for the breadth of opportunities available: “I knew I wanted to become a part of ROBRADY for one main reason, balance. After touring the facility, I was amazed at the level of projects generated in-house from concept to completion. ROBRADY is unlike any design studio I’ve been involved with so I knew I would be challenged and ultimately become a more well-rounded designer. The balance of learning from, and contributing to, the success of the company was a huge draw for me to join”.
