Green Dot Design was established in the Tampa Bay area in 1993 as the
up start design studio - Green Dot Graphics Resources. Established by Arsen Brzostek,
as a one man design studio which provided fresh talent and a commitment to
inspired design, service and integrity.
Brzostek's extensive advertising and marketing education and background includes a life long passion for art, graphic design and the various media available for creative expression such as illustration, photography, and digital.
Born in Poland, when Arsen was a young boy, him and his parents escaped communist rule and found political asylum in the greatist country in the world - The United States of America. Legally immigrating to America in 1977 his parents worked several jobs to support the young family. His parents desire to make a better life in America profoundly affected his direction in life. From a very young age his parents nurtured a spirit of independence, hard work, honesty and integrity. An upbringing of a strong work ethic was instilled in him from a young age, a rare quality found in todays society.
Arsen attended every art class available to him from an elementary age and has learned that through practice, natural talent can be cultivated to allow for a professional career in commercial art. Through his teens he worked with his parents helping with their business. In his efforts he has managed work teams since teenage years and been involved with commercial art since East Lake High School where art teacher and now long time friend, Patricia Priscoe, encouraged and nurtured his creative talents. Becoming an American Citizen in 1987, Brzostek began his professional career airbrushing t-shirts in a local mall during summer vacation days off of working with his parents business.
Continuing to pursue his passion he moved to Miami and earned multiple degrees in Commercial Art and Communications from a Miami art college (International Fine Arts College, now the Art Institute of Miami earning an Associate of Arts Degree) and a Miami university (St. Thomas University earning a Bachelor of Communications Degree). His curriculum vitae boasts companies ranging from one of the leading graphic design firms in the nation to several large international advertising agencies. At these firms Arsen handled creative and design for various local and international clients such as Esso Oil, Burger King, American Express and Disney.
Brzostek's entrepreneurial spirit fueled his creative fire which helped him focus his passion, talent, and experience on the success of his own design studio. Over the past eighteen years Green Dot has flourished. Today, Green Dot Design is a full service design and advertising studio featuring a host of talented and award winning artists, technical professionals, and creative minds who can develop unique concepts and render them consistently in virtually any media. Through adherence to progressive philosophies and technologies, Green Dot Design can offer the highest quality original design work, most diverse capabilities, impeccable client support and professional communication.
While most of Brzostek's designs are applied to marketing and advertising collateral he believes motion pictures are the highest form of creative communication as they require a balance of design, production, project management and the mastery of communication. With this philosophy he has successfully produced, directed and written several documentaries which were featured at international film festivals, earning several awards along with the coveted - Sunshine Celluloid Award at the Ft. Lauderdale International Film Festival.
Today, Arsen is excited to develop creative ideas for his clients and nurture long term business relationships. He feels strongly about helping the American economy by performing all design and development work inhouse, or in specific cases utilizing local area vendors, without the need for outsourcing to foreign countries. He also feels strongly about mentoring future local creatives and has done so for many young people through internships within Green Dot. His character combined with experience allows him to provide the very best in commercial art for his clients needs. His knowledge and understanding of people allow him to know the difference between a client who needs a contemporary image to that of one who may need to conform to a certain perception their target audience desires. All project budgets are respected and no project or client is too small or large.
