Rolan Gregg is a writer, artist, and surfer. He works in the trenches of copywriting, digital strategy, and creative projects. Living in Portland, Oregon, he’s a long way from his beginnings in New York City.
Rolan has written professionally for a diverse group of clients in the worlds of interior design, contemporary art, tech start-ups, and aviation. He has also created digital marketing campaigns, blogs, websites, printed material, advertisements, iTunes apps and social media content. He completed the graduate program in Visual & Critical Studies at the California College of the Arts in 2006.
When he’s not serving up copy, he works on large scale paintings and surfs the chilly Oregon coast with his trusty longboard. He takes photos on the daily as a quick fix to realign with the creative forces and has been a wayward yoga practitioner for a long time.
Rolan is gratefully influenced by the work of AA Bronson, Louise Nevelson, Banana Yoshimoto, and the sea.
“Prior to working with Rolan, my social media strategy was…well I didn’t have one! Within 30 days of working together, my facebook fans and twitter followers tripled and they continue to grow daily. He does everything I don’t have time to do and gently guides me toward steps I should be taking. I am so pleased with the results and he is an absolute pleasure to work with.”
–Melanie Coddington, Owner of Coddington Design
“Rolan reinvented my business. I’m not kidding. Because of this efforts, I have accessed a client base beyond anything I’d even hoped for and I’m experiencing a level of growth I can only describe as dramatic and exciting. Rolan’s work is invaluable for those of us who are passionate about our work and want to share it with the world.”
–Hope Hitchcock, Founder of Your Imaginst
“I have had the privilege to work with Rolan Gregg on an innovative corporate social media project for a Palo Alto based venture capital backed start-up. Rolan is not just another social media consultant- Rolan has the skills, strategy, deep knowledge, and experience to not only engage existing audiences, but help to build new ones. He is constantly experimenting with new ways to expand our following. I will also let you in on a little secret about Rolan that every company should have as a top priority(and why I hired him): He has a unique and amazing personality that is authentic and empathic. A quality that shines through his work and breathes life into everything he does for us. I want to take credit in discovering Rolan- but really, he is one of those natural born social media stars. I look forward to working with Rolan for years to come.”
