In 2009 Carol became the Art Projects Specialist and co-Owner of Blow Up Lab, a San Francisco based mural graphics and fine art printing business. She has been managing projects printing, finishing and installing photography, fine art and murals for artists, art consultants, architects, interior and graphic designers, in galleries, museums, offices, retail stores, medical facilities, tradeshows and events all over the U.S. and abroad.
Carol began her career as an Art Director at McCann-Erickson advertising agency where she became experienced in visual communications design and production. In the late '90s she also worked for "start-up" companies as a Creative Director managing the design and production of corporate identities and product branding.
Carol also spent many years in the art business as an Art Gallery Director and Independent Curator. Her company, Exhibits, produced over 100 exhibitions in public spaces and museums from 1990 to 2008. In addition, she also produced permanent, historical exhibitions for several corporations and institutions.
Carol's extensive experience in the fine art and commercial design worlds has given her the ideal skills to assist Blow Up Lab's clients in reaching the best results possible with their unique, custom projects.
Carol Covington decided to pursue a career in fine art & graphic design while attending college in Florence, Italy and London England.
"As I traveled extensively around Europe while on university study abroad programs in Florence and London, I was so inspired by the art I saw in museums as well as the commercial graphics on the streets everywhere, I knew then I had to pursue my passion of art and design as my career. I feel so fortunate that I have been able to realize my potential in both realms. My experience as an Art Director and an Art Curator are a perfect blend to partner with our clients at the Blow Up Lab. I believe the difference between Blow Up Lab and our competitors is the rare, old-fashioned service and expertise we offer, that allows us to take care of our clients' needs in exceptional ways."
