I'M GARY BOSTWICK.
I BUILD THINGS WITH WORDS. 

 
 
 

Trade-Approved Midwest Work Ethic

 

I hail from an upbringing where men like my father had rough hands from building bridges. And schools. So the least I can do is try to make something half as decent. My craft is writing. I use headlines as my bricks and get callouses from a keyboard.

Believe it or not, my old man thinks it's pretty awesome.

Once in a while, some people in the advertising industry and the press agree. My work has been featured by the following and others:

Communication Arts // Adweek  //  Buzzfeed  //  AgencySpy  // PRINT Magazine // The Dieline  //  Golf Channel

 

SOME BRANDS I'VE WORKED ON:

Recent Things

Cleveland Browns Quarterback Baker Mayfield visits West Park Barber Shop—my longest-standing freelance client—to meet up with his barber for a haircut and a beard trim. Pretty cool to see my brand identity work on Mayfield and my friend Patrick Burke living the dream.
