May 2, 2018 (YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio) – Business entrepreneur. Social media specialist. Graphic designer. Ryan Kallok has mastered the art of versatility and knows in order to achieve success in today’s ever-changing advertising and marketing landscape, you must learn to adapt. Now, he’s ready to venture on his next role as PALO Creative’s Digital Marketer.

“Words can’t describe how excited I am to be a part of the PALO Creative team,” says Kallok. “This agency has a strong reputation among area businesses and is a proven leader in advertising and digital media.”

Born and raised in Boardman, Ohio, Kallok discovered his passion for marketing and design at a young age through an unsuspecting way, skateboarding. As an avid skateboarder, he made his own skateboard graphics and applied his newfound love to designing artwork for local skate parks. After high school, he studied Business Administration at Youngstown State University while also completing an internship at the Andrews Student and Recreation and Wellness Center on campus. It was during this time when he crafted his design skills and developed a keen eye for marketing through a variety of web, graphic and social media projects.

“My internship and the experiences I gathered taught me more than I could have ever imagined and led me to starting an independent marketing agency,” says Kallok. “Founding a business really helped me develop both the design acumen and business knowledge crucial for success.”

Kallok collaborated with such clients as Friends of Fellows Riverside Gardens and Cesar Millan, best-selling author and internationally acclaimed “Dog Whisper,” to develop websites and implement new brand identities through innovative services and solutions to drive traffic online. His fondest accomplishment though has to be when he worked for Mill Creek MetroParks and played a vital role in helping refresh the parks’ logo and rebrand their website.

“Ryan’s a talented and determined individual with a unique marketing skillset that only strengthens our ability to deliver the best content for our clients,” states PALO Creative President and CEO, Rob Palowitz. “He brings to the table tremendous experience, knowledge and an understanding of the industry backed by an entrepreneurial spirit. I like that mix of exposure knowing he can be versatile and contribute on many facets.”
