Atlanta, Georgia (PressExposure) August 05, 2009 -- Atlanta-based entrepreneur Lavon Lewis will be honored on August 4, for outstanding achievement in technology by the U.S. Department of Commerce Minority Business Development Agency making Lewis one of the youngest recipients to date. The 29-year-old CEO and creative director of Pencilworx Design Group (PDG) has established one of the leading technology service companies in the region, garnering the honors and recognition of more than 40 national and international industry awards.
âWe are truly excited to receive this prestigious award and humbled by this tremendous honor,â said Lewis who is a graduate of Alabama A&M University. âOur unique approach to graphic communication allows us to transform conceptual ideas and visions into the signature brands and tangible marketing materials for companies, organizations and institutions around the world. We work with each of our clients to obtain what we deem as the âWOWâ image.â
In addition to operating a successful business for more than a decade, Lewis is the author of âToday is a Great Day for A Wow Imageâ and is a highly requested public speaker nationwide. His entrepreneurial drive has provided him opportunities with some of the countryâs leading corporations, small businesses and faith-based leaders including: The Hilton Los Angeles/North Glendale, InterContinental Los Angeles Century City, Focus Brands (Cinnabon, Seattleâs Best Coffee and Schlotzskyâs Deli), First Tuskegee Bank, Weddings Magazine, Bishop Eddie L. Long, Carter Brothers (Cris Carter), Marvin Winans, Jr., Marvin Sapp, the University of Michigan, University of Alabama-Birmingham and hundreds of small businesses.
âWe have built this company on different principles. Often designers have a limited scope, slow service, and poor communication skills, so we decided to give the market an alternative,â added Lewis, who was turned down for nearly 25 jobs after graduating with a degree in graphic communication in 2002. âKeeping customer service and creativity a priority, providing a hands-on approach to business, and offering a willingness to listen, has allowed Pencilworx Design Group the ability to make a positive impact in our clientsâ overall professional experience.â
