Andrew R. Summerfield

PRESIDENT

He is the vision behind Summerfield, a member of 40 Under 40’s Class of 2013, and recently recognized as one of Columbus Business First’s 20 People to Know in Advertising, PR & Media.

Andrew understands that strategy comes first – from identifying objectives to launching new products, creating and repositioning brands to building corporate systems, from designing comprehensive solutions to meeting your goals. He maintains brand integrity by identifying, building and guiding a talented team powered by open conceptual thinking and strategic vision.

When Andrew is not working, you can find him brewing his own beer, making kombucha or most importantly, making home movies with his kids.

Kristin C. Fornal

VP & DIRECTOR OF ACCOUNTS

A marketing veteran with a strong reputation for delivering multi-faceted marketing and public relations initiatives in corporate and nonprofit environments, Kristin’s inviting personality makes her great at building and maintaining relationships. Focused on the account services and sales teams, she leverages everyone’s strengths at Summerfield to bring client brands to life. Her broad range of experience, from local to global initiatives, provides a unique perspective when delivering strategic solutions that brings success to our clients.

When she’s not in the office, you’re likely to find her experiencing new environments from nature to local boutiques, attending festivals and museums, volunteering in the community, or sharing a slice of happiness with whomever she meets.

Cory Oakley

ART DIRECTOR

Since joining the team in 2011, Cory’s unique combination of graphic design and digital development skills along with his get-it-done attitude, has made him the go-to for a variety of Summerfield’s projects. These projects range from the creation of a new brand identity to the development of user interface design and flawless code for innovative, responsive websites. His positive attitude and precise attention to detail make him a great mentor for directing and leading the junior designers.

Out the office, you can find Cory networking with the local design community, hitting up a happy hour in the Short North Arts District and experiencing the outdoors at his family’s farm.

Joe Van Hove

GRAPHIC DESIGNER

After finishing his final year at Columbus College of Art & Design, Joe is currently honing his advertising and design skills and experimenting with any and all mediums that he can get his hands on. As a Graphic Designer, Joe plays an integral role in the development and completion of many of Summerfield's projects and tasks.

Joe is an Ohio-native now living in the heart of Columbus. He enjoys architecture and furniture design, going to local art & design events and being a part of the creative community. When not in design mode, he can be found watching a foreign language film at Gateway or visiting the dog park with his trusty sidekick, Gogo.

Sarah Moore

GRAPHIC DESIGNER

Joining Team Summerfield fresh out of Columbus College of Art & Design, Sarah brings a diverse range of creative skills to the table. From creating type-based infographics to producing her own enamel pins and posters, Sarah loves all aspects of design – especially if it involves illustration. Her favorite part of any project, however, is the initial conceptual and strategic planning phase.

When she’s not designing at Summerfield, Sarah can be found working on personal projects, searching for cool finds at the thrift store, tracking down the nearest beach or hanging out with her rabbit, Chester.

India Jade Orban

JUNIOR DESIGNER

Joining the team as Summerfield's newest Junior Designer, India is an Advertising & Graphic Design Junior and Resident's Advisor at Columbus College of Art & Design. Outside of school, she works as a traveling portrait photographer and wedding videographer around the Midwest. India brings her extensive photography skills and creative background in typography and composition to the team.

You can find India spending her free time enjoying the outdoors, drinking coffee, reading good books, and cracking dad jokes.
