On The Move: An Interview with Commercial Model Acy Brown
We’re excited to introduce Acy Brown. Acy, please tell us a little bit about you, your background, and your brand?
I grew up in the rural area of Chatham, Louisiana which is located in the northern region of the State and graduated from Grambling State University with a B.S. in Accounting. I began modeling professionally at the age of 34. As an avid sports fan, my favorite teams are, of course, my alma mater Grambling State University Tigers and the New Orleans Saints! In my spare time, love watching the Flintstones, Scooby-Doo, Bugs Bunny, and westerns — with my favorite being Gunsmoke. I do enjoy traveling, but I am more of a homebody and consider myself to be laid back, down to earth, and love to be surrounded by a quiet peaceful environment. I am extremely close to and believe in maintaining healthy family relationships as much as possible.
In regards to my brand, its personality is Athletic and Wholesome. I want people to feel good by having associated themselves with my brand. The mission of the Acy Brown brand is to inform, inspire, and motivate others to reach their full potential with the goals and dreams they aspire to achieve in life. I want my brand to be known for its integrity and consistency in all endeavors and projects in which the brand is involved.
Where did the concept of your brand come from?
I’ve always wanted my birth name to represent my company name as I want to pass this legacy down once my time and journey here on earth is completed. The Lifestyle Collection, Pyramid Collection, and newly designed PEACE IS PRICELESS Collection all represent the qualities persons in my target market require… high quality, stylish, classy, and colorful.
The concept of the trademark pyramid logo and the 19 blocks within represent personal attributes and characteristics of my life and the three arrows surrounding the pyramid symbolize the constant revolving of these attributes and characteristics as the brand makes its mark around the world! Someone may attempt to steal or duplicate the physical symbols, but they will never be able to steal nor duplicate the true meaning, concepts, and basis for which the brand stands for and represents to society as a whole.
