Drew Bryant serves as the Founder, Creative Principal and driving force behind Slate Shepherd. He is equal parts brand strategist, creative director, architect, designer, and illustrator. Drew has 20 years of experience in creative design, client services for architecture firms and design studios in Nashville and Charlotte. Over his career he has designed multi-million dollar buildings and done illustrations for CNN. There is no project too big or too small — it has always been about producing great designs that overcome conformity. He believes in the power of story to drive design, and his approach is one of simple lines and clear ideas, allowing the space to come alive with rich details and unexpected moments.
He has extensive experience with numerous NFL, NHL, and University athletic programs. And in his career has completed brand experiences for over 100 universities across the country and designed over 200 brand experience projects.
In 2021, he formed Slate Shepherd and began building a creative studio with top tier talent. While the focus will be on sports branding experiences, Slate Shepherd is delivering experiences for museums and hospitality sector.
In his spare time, Drew enjoys the chaos of raising a 3 and 4 year old with his wife Tori, traveling to foreign countries and playing golf. A lot of golf.
