Tripp Douglas

Creative Director / Since 2000

Tripp is the founder of Crema Design Studio. The studio was formed as an expansion of his solo freelance business (also known as "Tripp Douglas Graphics, Inc.").

He graduated with a degree from Mississippi College in 2000, but his professional career actually begun in 1999 (working for clients from his dorm room on a blue Power Macintosh G3).

After growing his freelance business for a couple of years, he opened Fusion Coffeehouse in 2003 (which became the de facto office for meeting with design clients).

By late 2009 the responsibilities of running the coffeehouse along with the growing demand for design work became too much for one person. So Crema Design Studio was formed, and Stephen Ginn became the first hire in 2010.

Tripp lives in Ridgeland with his wife, Amanda, and their two children.
