Carl Cottam

It takes sound creative vision that aligns perfectly with the overarching strategy to achieve results that pay off.

A Little Kibble 

Carl creates meaningful design solutions that drive results for our clients. He translates complex business needs into aesthetically persuasive pieces. His passion for reaching audiences and captivating their attention is tangible. Nothing moves Carl quite like wowing a client.

Feeding Time 

Carl is a key addition to any client marketing strategy for the skilled way he approaches and articulates the impact of design to our clients. His varied client contributions have ranged from numerous rebrands and flawless print pieces to being the mastermind behind our first promotional video for the Memphis International Airport.

No one would ever call Carl’s work at RedRover one dimensional. In fact, in 2014, Carl’s design concept that became the Ride the Roo nightlife bus in Midtown won a Gold Summit Creative Award in the vehicle-wrap category.

Carl earned his bachelor’s in fine arts from the University of Memphis. His past work experience includes positions within Medtronic and advertising agency Kelley & Associates.

Carl is more than a phenomenal visual artist.

Carl is passionate about food. In fact, his burgers regularly win awards in local and regional contests. His team, Ellevan (a combination of his first two children’s names – Ella and Evan), is a yearly participant in the Best Memphis Burger contest, where they have won top honors for their veggie burger creation.

Carl is also an avid traveler. He loves to fish, and enjoys taking a fly-fishing trip with friends to Blue Ridge, Georgia every year. If you have a trip to New Orleans in your future, ask Carl for his custom foodie map based on his personal experiences in the Crescent City. You won’t regret it.
