Owner, Brand Specialist & Conceptual Artist at HELLO THIS IS JEFF
Above all, I love Christ and the Church. My mission is to help build up individuals, communities, and churches by serving selflessly, restoring dignity, and allowing God's story to shine through it all.
My professional design experience has included two brand agencies as well as in-house at the world's best children's museum and at one of the fastest-growing churches in the country.
In 2011, I started HELLO THIS IS JEFF to take everything I had learned and put it to use to help many more mission-driven individuals and organizations. I sought to create a brand centered on open communication, healthy client-designer relationships, and quality creative work.
Since that time, I’ve had the privilege of helping churches big and small, inner-city missions, health organizations, national and international associations, and small businesses up their brand game, craft a compelling web presence, and establish a professional and clear voice for their largest campaigns.
When I'm not working on design commissions, I love traveling, going for hikes, and squeezing the most out of the time I get to spend with my wife and our three amazing children right here in our hometown of Indianapolis. Together, we're seeking to live out the call of Christ to love and serve others through active participation at a culturally and economically-diverse church in the heart of our city's toughest neighborhood.
how I like to work
- Communicate well by listening, understanding, and empathizing
- Spark creativity by asking the right questions
- Think smart and balance big ideas with brand goals
- Value relationships more than ideas
- Deliver on the details
I care about the success of your brand
(and so does your audience!)
The greatest impact comes in revealing not a glamorized brand but an authentic brand, one that's been unearthed from the existing bedrock of corporate vision, values, and philosophy and brought to light to show its innate character and personality.
When your brand becomes personable and relatable, the conversation with your audience can begin – the start of a fulfilling journey where trust and loyalty are earned and kept through an ongoing relationship.
