The past thirty years have seen many changes in the way we communicate. Technology has changed from pen and ink, to 1s and 0s. We’ve gone from three broadcast channels in the United States to millions of individual web sites each with the capability of providing their own content in a variety of formats, whether print, still image, music, or video. For the past thirty years Gregg Jamback has been intimately involved with the processes and technology needed to provide his clients with the ability to communicate creatively and effectively.
