Charleston native, John Chitwood, was encouraged by his family to pursue his artistic talent early on. In 1988 he graduated from Ringling School of Art & Design, and returned to Charleston to forge a life as a successful graphic artist and member of the creative community. He has been a partner in two marketing agencies, and a website development firm, and has also worked for publishers and printers – affording him an extremely well rounded design pedigree.
In 2000 John opened Renaissart Graphic Design on upper King St. Sharing the studio with an architect and a photographer actually inspired the company name. It was truly a Renaissance environment. Renaissart Design has recently relocated to Mt Pleasant, where it continues to shares space with other creative businesses.
