About Shout It Out Design

Helping Clients Be Seen, Be Heard and Be Found is what Shout It Out Design was built for.

Owner, Chief Everything Officer

The Man, the Myth, the Legend

I started Shout it Out Design in 2010 with the purpose of helping small businesses succeed in a competitive online marketplace. Growing up in my family’s small business, Young’s Jersey Dairy in Yellow Springs, Ohio, I was raised with the passion to continue to do what’s best for the customer.

As a website designer and small business owner, I enjoy working with other small business owners that share my passion for growing their business and being successful online. I specialize in website development and design, email marketing, and providing solutions to my clients’ digital marketing challenges.

I have a bachelor’s degree from Wright State University and have been told I’m a pretty nice guy. In November 2014, my wife Kelly and I welcomed Scarlett into our world. So far, I’ve found fatherhood and owning a business have a lot of similarities:

  • When you don’t get your way, crying doesn’t always help
  • Sleep is overrated
  • Sometimes you’re full of it and need a change
  • Nothing makes a client (or baby) smile like a good tickle or belly-raspberry

I love my two girls more than anything in the world, but my collective family of clients comes in at a close second. If it wasn’t for my second family – I wouldn’t be able to enjoy the occasional free time to hang out with my first family.

Eventually graduating from Mt Vernon Nazarene University, Craig – originally from London, Ohio – calls Gahanna, Ohio home and is nearly an empty-nester as his children Brea, Dom, and Cass are all now in the low-mid 20s age range. Husband, Mike, plus their German Shepherd “Remington”, Mini-Australian Shepherd “Shonky”, and Pembroke Welsh Corgi “Foof” (plus a variety of saltwater fish and live corals) round out the zoo that he calls home.

Blessed with an exceptional group of friends he refers to as “fRamily”, Craig‘s thrives on enjoying every day of life in conjunction riding one of his motorcycles, singing in his Music Men of London barbershop quartet, performing with Ohio State University Marching Band Alumni (TBDBITL — O-H!), and instructing his RealRyder Cycling Class. If you’re ever communicating with Craig, please pardon the bad puns or quips that he may zing at you. It’s who he is.
