“Simply put, he is the Renaissance man of Charleston”

MARCUS AMAKER

Am I a professional multi-tasker? A man with too many hobbies? A recovering journalist? Do I ever sleep? Yes, yes, yes & no.

PoetryVideographyWeb DesignMusicGraphic Design
I have five published books and have performed spoken word at many venues in the south. I’ve also served as a mentor to high school students at Burke High School and the School of the Arts.
Shooting and editing video is one of my passions, and I’ve been fortunate enough to work with amazing clients, including the Jazz Artists of Charleston, the Gibbes Museum, SCANPO and Komen Lowcountry.
I’ve been doing web design since 1999. What started as a hobby has grown into a vital part of my work. I design and manage WordPress and HTML sites that are mobile-friendly and clean. My knowledge of graphic design will give each website a professional look.
It all begins and ends with music. It is my first love. I’ve been recording songs since the age of 8. You can sample my work here and purchase CDs.
Logos, print and digital design. Indesign, Illustrator and Photoshop are my friends. I love branding and am obsessed with fonts. I can lend my skills to your business and/or cause. You get special treatment if you are a nonprofit.
