My name is Jake Steele, but my friends call me Jake. I started Steele Design Co. (SDCo.) 4 years ago after 18 years in the creative biz working for brands around the country. Don't let the beard fool you, I'm as serious and professional as they come, sometimes. I'm loved and tolerated by my 4 favorite people in the world. I'm lucky to be a designer and I thrive on being able to use my brain and hands to create. I spend my days consumed by the creative process. Whether its illustration for new packaging, art directing a photo shoot, or simple production work...the process is what drives the success of each task to be more than what might be expected. I live to surprise people and love when the collaboration of creative and client hit that sweet spot and strikes majestic magical marketing gold.
