About Me Born and raised in South Central Los Angeles. I grew up in social surroundings that most would consider life-threatening. A ganginfested environment where you either join a gang or offer your soul to stay alive. I chose to be in a gang. Not because I did not have afather at home...because I did. Nor was it because we were on welfare and I needed to help feed my family. But to feel apart of somethingthat felt like a family in the streets. Protection. Until one day, when I had to try and keep a friend alive by sticking my fist in his chest to tryand stop the blood from pouring out after being shot close-range with an AK-47 assault rifle, I realized this was not the life for me. In high school, I went on to excel in not only sports but academically as well. I obtained a baseball scholarship to play for ArizonaState University. My major was Computer and Electrical Engineering. Again, I had to adapt to a new environment. An environment thatrequired me to grow in a different direction. To become a man. I eventually went on to graduate from ASU. Not as an engineer, but witha Bachelors degree in Humanities with a minor in Graphic Design...operative word being HUMANITY...this is the an area I thrive in. People!I love working with people, creating new ideas, team collaboration and desire, passion and excitement of improving the lives of others.Simply put...”Be still when you have nothing to say; when genuine passion moves you, say what you’ve got to say, and say it hot.”After 3 years of Calculus, Physics and Differential Equations, I realized I was not feeling as if I were giving back to the people whosacrificed so much for me to be where I am. My eyes were opened by the studies of literature and the unspoken history of the peopleI am proud to be apart. African American History and my descendents therefore. A strong heritage that overcame slavery, poverty andunjust. So when you ask...Who am I? I am an African American who is proud to say that I am not a statistic. After over twenty years in Marketing and Graphic Design, I thought that my path had been chosen. But, what I was really doingwas using my creativity and marketing skills merely on the surface rather than igniting the deep passion I have for this business to makea difference in the world. THAT is my purpose! In 2008, I established Keith Rosborough Designs, LLC, a freelance design studio that offerscreative services to a wide range of clients. As well as business management, I also am the Senior Designer and Brand Strategist for allwork undertaken by Keith Rosborough Designs, LLC.A special quote that I live by: “When work, commitment, and pleasure all become one and you reach that deep well where passionlives, nothing is impossible.”
