Raleigh, N.C.- Signal, a full-service creative communications agency with studios in Raleigh and Wilmington, N.C., announced today that it recently named Robin Vuchnich creative director at its Raleigh office. Having previously served as a graphic designer from 2001 to 2005, Vuchnich rejoins the Signal team in her new role where she has already delivered immediate results with her fresh thinking and creative inspiration.

“I am very excited about Robin’s return to Signal,” said Rick Haynes, president of Signal. “We are so fortunate to add such a talented and accomplished artist to our team. We couldn’t be happier to have her lead our creative efforts in Raleigh and our clients are already taking notice of her efforts.”

Robin’s creativity has earned her more than a dozen design awards from juried competitions including the ADDYs, the Webbys, AIGA and PRINT Magazine. Her recent work includes branding for the new Raleigh Convention Center, the Raleigh Arts Commission as well as leading the creative development for The NC Health & Wellness Trust Fund’s “T.R.U.” (Tobacco Reality Unfiltered) campaigns.

“One of the biggest things that brought me back to Signal was the integrity of the company, specifically the close-knit business family,” said Vuchnich. “My first job out of college was as a designer for Signal. Although I thoroughly enjoyed my work with other companies it didn’t compare to the feeling I had at Signal. I am proud to see my career come full circle as I continue on with my Signal family.”
