Gregory Culley



Gregory Culley is a freelance designer based in Chicago, Illinois.

Most recently, he was the Assistant Art Director on Pickler & Ben, a daytime talk show shot in Nashville, Tennessee, co-hosted by Kellie Pickler and Ben Aaron, and executive produced by Faith Hill and Lisa Erspamer.

In early 2018, Gregory worked in the Dublin studio of Annie Atkins (graphic designer of Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel and Isle of Dogs, and Spielberg's Bridge of Spies) recreating graphic props for her forthcoming book.

In 2014, Gregory graduated from Kenyon College with Bachelor of Arts degrees in art history and drama, and received Distinction in drama for his senior exercise (the scene design of Noises Off by Michael Frayn).

After college, Gregory moved to Chicago to work in the art department on Steve Harvey, the Emmy award-winning daytime talk show, for three seasons. At Steve Harvey, Gregory served as a graphic designer and draftsman, making graphic props for on-screen use, as well as designing and drafting scenic elements. 

Gregory is a passionate storyteller who seeks to find exciting and inspiring ways to join visual and narrative media.
