FEBRUARY 14, 2007 – AUGUST 1, 2017

Sidekick. Crazy Lab. My Valentine. Ellie was one of those once-in-a-lifetime dogs who came along to live boldly and do good. She was caring, loyal, and always took care of those in need. She gave endless stories and good times to all who knew her, and she was certainly one of a kind. Ellie always wore a big red collar, so Red Collar Marketing seemed to be a fitting name for a company started in her honor.  



Lee founded Red Collar Marketing in 2018 after nearly two decades in corporate marketing with expertise in industries ranging from government to higher education, healthcare, and finance. Originally from the midwest, he has a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications from Indiana University, a Master’s Degree in Integrated Marketing Communications from West Virginia University, and will soon complete a Master’s Degree in Learning Sciences from the University of New Mexico. Lee is a Distinguished Hoosier (2003) and Sagamore of the Wabash (2005), which is Indiana’s highest honor. 




Swapnil is currently on the graphic design faculty at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) and worked with Lee at Purdue’s College of Engineering where he worked on a team that created a new brand identity for the college’s 13 schools and departments. He has a Master’s of Fine Arts from SCAD and a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts from the Sir J. J. Institute of Applied Art. He believes in design that is clean, functional, and approachable. The fields that interest Swapnil the most are typography, identity design, information design, experience design, and environmental graphics.
