Paragon Design Group is making waves in Savannah.
Paragon Design Group
For three SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design) graduates and friends Susan Isaacs, Philip Joyner and Andrew Davies, everything they needed to know they learned in college.
It’s been nearly ten years since they emerged from one of the top design schools in the country with a fresh perspective on their respective futures: they wanted to stay in Savannah and start their own company.
“We all went to SCAD,” starts Isaacs… “And we never left,” finishes Davies.
Paragon Design Group is what emerged as their three-parent brainchild. Paragon is a hugely cool creative services company that produces multimedia design, print, web and motion graphics.
“When we started the company it was like we were in some sort of weird vacuum,” says Isaacs, Managing Director of Paragon. “The expectation locally for quality of design just didn’t exist.”
Then they met Chris Miller, then Executive Director of the burgeoning Creative Coast Initiative. “Miller was a lightening rod,” says Davies, who along with the Paragon posse credits Chris Miller and TCCa with harnessing the energy of Savannah’s creative and technology community.
“The Creative Coast Alliance has fostered a level of collaboration between companies,” says Joyner. “We’ve begun to see ourselves not as competitors but as folks who share ideas.”
Kudos to Paragon for their awesome creative work and for their efforts in striving to make Savannah the hip and tech-friendly place we know and love.
“Think about it: we are able to compete in Atlanta, even internationally, while living in this great, laid back environment,” says Isaacs.
