Justin Froning

Justin is an international award-winning illustrator and designer, with his work being visible in ads, on shelves, and in arthouses across the country and overseas. Born and raised in Fayetteville, AR, he is a proud graduate of the University of Arkansas.

He spent years as a professional musician in the indie-rock band Deas Vail. During his time as a recording artist and touring band member, he had the privilege of traveling the country many times over and performing with countless artists. While honing his craft in design, he worked with clients in the music industry and companies across the country. After years living in Nashville and Seattle, he and his wife Ciara now reside back home in beautiful Northwest Arkansas.

As Director of Marketing & Brand Development, his focus is set on the continuous improvement of the quality and scope of Celebrate Arkansas. Working hand-in-hand with our clients, he provides design services to help achieve their vision with regionally focused, national-level advertisements.

When away from work, he and his wife travel, hike, and serve their church—where he still enjoys playing music on most Sundays.
