Judging a Book by its Cover

Designer Rodrigo Corral will speak at Blue Ion next Thursday, May 12th.  Parliament readers, you are probably familiar with his work if you do not recognize his name. Rodrigo designed some very famous book covers, including James Frey’s A Million Little Pieces; all the covers for author Chuck Palanuick (including his latest publication Tell All) and most recently, hip-hop artist Jay Z’s book Decoded.

Rodrigo’s work has appeared in New York Magazine, The Atlantic and The New York Times Book Review. His art has also been seen on books published by Simon & Schuster, Penguin Group (USA), and W.W. Norton. To learn more about Rodrigo’s work: www.rodrigocorral.com.

Robert Prioleau of Blue Ion

Robert Prioleau – Partner, Strategy Director of Blue Ion.

Although there’s no “official” record, it’s reported that I entered this world with one pressing question: Why? This early inquisitiveness has led to a lifetime of list making,brow furrowing and Venn diagrams. I spent my formative years in Houston before moving on to Vanderbilt and later to the University of Texas to pick up an MBA and serious Horns habit. I cut my teeth at GSD&M; Fitzgerald & Company and BellSouth Internet Services. After tunneling out of Atlanta, I happily stuck myself in the belly of Charleston where I met my two Blue Ion co-founders. My role here, equal parts sheepherder, strategist and therapist, is to bring out the best in clients, brands and their customers. If I had a collection of “I’d rather be” bumper stickers, I’d “rather be:” outside, on a bike or skateboard, running with my dogs, playing harmonica or sipping tequila. All at once is a life goal. For the record, I have a problem with brunch. No one has ever adequately explained the appeal of sitting inside eating while the best part of the day ticks by.
