Hi! My name is Greg Harvey and I am Web Designer, Graphic Artist, and a Social Media Strategist. I have been in this industry for a long time. I built my first website in 1998 in Notepad. I had to learn and write all of the code by hand. It was very time consuming and frustrating but I knew that the web was going to change the world as we knew it.
Today with programs like WordPress you can build beautiful websites in a fraction of time it used to take. All along the way I have learned each new platform that has come out and stayed ahead of the curve.
I am an international award winning graphic artist and I have been blessed to work with some amazing clients. The Titanic Exhibits, CSI, Star Trek, CBS, EMS Exhibits, Mattel, Our Bodies: The Universe Within, and right now I am working with the Duck Dynasty guys. I have created billboards and bus wraps, flyers and brochures, business cards, social media graphics and magazine ads. I even designed the artwork for the front of some buildings on International Drive in Orlando Florida. I have a passion to make excellent graphics and websites for the people and businesses I am working with. I want to help other creative entrepreneurs and small business owners do what they love, clarify their message, build a brand they are proud of, reach their ideal clients and easily move into the next level of their business. A professional website or graphics package really will set you apart from your competitors.
What’s with the name?
My company name is Tentmaker Interactive Media. Outside of being an award winning graphic artist, I am also a Christian and have been able to work for myself for the last 14 years professionally. This allows me to go on various mission trips, go into shelters and prisons and detox centers to bring some Hope to hurting people. Paul the apostle was a tentmaker to support himself and his ministry as he traveled around helping people. I was even blessed to visit ancient Corinth where Paul was on a mission trip to Athens, Greece. I look at my projects as my “tents”. With each one made I am able to support my family and go out and help people wherever I go. Graphics, websites, and social media are all very interactive so what better name than Tentmaker Interactive Media.
What’s with the Green Beard?
First off, I am an introvert. I would much rather be behind the scenes than out in front. I have a hard time starting conversations sometimes and I can be a little socially awkward. I started dying my beard 4 years ago. It went gray way too early and I thought if I am going to dye it, then I am going to DYE it! It starts a lot of conversations. I have been able to use it to share my faith. I am a Christian and that also means I am a Fisher of Men. The Green Beard is my bait. I started broadcasting in 2016 on Periscope and on Facebook LIVE. Every morning I do a devotion broadcast and people started calling me Pastor Greenbeard. I am not really a pastor, I am just a guy saved by Grace, but the name has stuck and we now are growing an amazing community called The Greenbeard Tribe.
