Greg Breeding studied design and typography at Virginia Commonwealth University, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in fine arts. He began his career by working as a designer for several nonprofits. In 1992 Breeding co-founded Journey Group, a design firm where he currently serves as the creative director.
In addition to his work at Journey, Breeding has taught design courses in Ukraine, Malyasia, and the Czech Republic. He is continuing his own education by taking courses at the internationally-known Basel School of Design in Basel, Switzerland. Breeding has received numerous industry awards from Print’s Regional Design Annual, Communication Arts, the Society of Publication Designers, and the Florida Magazine Association.
Breeding’s first stamp as art director for the U.S. Postal Service was the 2012 issuance, The War of 1812: USS Constitution. “I’m interested in creating art for the public good,” Breeding says, “and honoring a person or event on a stamp highlights and celebrates what’s positive in our culture.”
Breeding lives in Charlottesville, Virginia, with his wife, Lyndee, and their three children. When not at work, he enjoys mountain biking in the Virginia countryside and serving on the board of a local arts organization, New City Arts Initiative. Breeding’s new avocation is sitting on his front porch and writing articles about design.
