Terry Barckholtz  president & creative czar

These days, where just about everyone claims to be an “expert,” Terry is the real deal. Creative. Wise. Seasoned with just enough salt and pepper to know how and when to use his experience. As far as thinking outside the box goes…we don’t think he ever even knew there was a box to begin with.

Couple that with today’s technology, and he’s a guy you want on your team to help solve communications and design problems.

With more than 30 years of experience in illustration, graphic design, and creative direction, Terry sets the high standards on which The Barckholtz Group has built it reputation. A native of Saginaw, he studied at Ferris State University and the Center for Creative Studies. He began his career in Detroit at L&M Associates (an art studio servicing J. Walter Thompson) and E.W. Baker Advertising, where he worked on accounts for Ford, General Motors, Chrysler, Toyota, Standard Federal, Michigan Lottery, Peschke Meats, Stanley Fruehauf and more. At the age of 24, he became the youngest senior art director at E.W. Baker, handling 3.1 million in billings. Upon returning to the Saginaw Valley, he worked at Scott & Miller Group and was part owner of PDM Design before founding The Barckholtz Group in 1979.
