About the speaker
Meet Marcel Ames : Designer, Founder, Dreamer.
Born and raised in Richmond, Marcel attended Richmond Public Schools, including the Appomattox Regional Governor’s School. He received his Bachelor of Arts from Marymount Manhattan College in New York City.
Marcel grew up with an eye for detail and fascination for tailored clothing, worn by his father and grandfather. Acting was his first passion and he was trained in theater for over a decade. To this day he is an actor working part time in television, film, and commercials.
He’s worn many hats including working in a renowned haberdashery. It was there he was able to hone in on his own personal sense of style.
Upon returning to Richmond, Marcel worked several years alongside his father as a mental health support counselor, including serving the Intellectually disabled population in the area. Intent on continuing to serve the community, he joined the ranks of the Richmond Police Department.
During the final stint of the academy, he suffered a concussion and was no longer able to serve. After an unfortunate string of events, original concepts and sketches that started as a therapeutic means of expression, evolved into the current collection you see today.
Via his brand X of Pentacles, Marcel wishes to offers the world something that embodies craftsmanship, respects tradition, and serves as a tool to express your own individual narrative.
Marcel’s main hobby has become his profession, but he also enjoys cooking, music, film, and currently serves as a Junior VACA Board Member for Vis-Arts here in Richmond.
At Capital One, we believe that innovation is powered by perspective and that teamwork and respect for each other lead to superior results. We elevate each other and obsess about doing the right thing. Our associates serve with humility and a deep respect for their responsibility in helping our customers achieve their goals and realize their dreams. Together, we are on a quest to change banking for good.
Just as we did when our company was founded in 1970, we continue to call ourselves “printers” – and so do our customers. Makes sense. Offset, digital, wide-format, and letterpress printing are today the core technologies of Worth Higgins & Associates. UV ink and coating, foil stamping, embossing and die cutting are tools of the printing process that we handle extraordinarily well in helping our clients achieve their creative goals and take their ideas beyond their imaginations.
Marketing no longer happens in silos. In our new digital reality we need to think about the total customer experience and wrap ourselves around the entire customer lifecycle. ICF Olson is a customer experience agency purpose-built to help you through this digital transformation.
The strength of Fahrenheit IT lies in our ability to provide high quality candidates and deliver customized staffing solutions designed to improve productivity and deliver results.
