CEO Brian Lewis launched his career as a structural designer, working for leading consumer packaging firms such as RockTenn and Olympic Packaging, Inc. Fresh out of computer-assisted design school (CAD), Brian joined the packaging industry during the introduction of computer technology to structural design. As a young packaging designer, Brian learned the art of handcrafted structural design from his predecessors, becoming a well-rounded designer while still ushering-in a technologically advanced era of packaging. During his professional journey, Brian discovered his niche as a structural designer of packaging mockups, or packaging prototypes. His passion drove Brian to work late into the night, honing his skills and attracting what was ultimately a life-changing opportunity to purchase a small, established structural packaging firm. With a small business loan and some help from a friend, Brian purchased the business in 1996 from his mentor and colleague Tom Sellers.
What began as a one-man packaging design operation with Brian, now employs a talented team that is nearly 20 people strong, each of whom has helped grow Create It Packaging by 30-times its original size. The Create It Packaging Team is committed to its vision of designing production-ready packaging prototypes through efficient collaboration and creative application of printing technology.
