Owner and lead artist, Willie "Trey" Wells, III has over 15 years of experience in the field of graphic design and advertising. Growing up in Birmingham, AL, Willie has always had an attraction to art and using his creative mind. He is a graduate of E.B. Erwin High School, where he was introduced to the versatility of Photoshop. That introduction solidified his desire to become a graphic designer, and after graduation in 2001, he chose to attend the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa where he would harness his skill.


He spent four years at the Capstone and would embark on his first job at Russell Athletics in Alexander City, where he would become a production designer for the college division. "Russell was where I had real life experience in design," Willie stated. "It was a foundation of my art career." During that time, he pursued building his own business and working it part-time after work hours. After about 4 years there, he wanted to move back to Birmingham to marry his college sweetheart, Dr. Valencia Wells. He later moved to HealthSouth where he became a project manager. He made his mark there and felt a strong desire to take Escape Graphics from a part-time position to a full-time position. "It was one of the best decisions I have ever made," Willie proclaims.

Running Escape Graphics has been a challenge at times, but it also has been a blessing in the fact that I have met so many different people and have had a chance to be a part of some great design projects. "I gain the most pleasure in seeing my clients become ecstatic on work we have completed for them,"

Willie states. Willie is ready to make more contacts so feel free to contact him and his company to start our journey.
