About Jeff

Just a Kid From the Middle Designing on the West Coast

Jeff Nissen

Art Director | Graphic Designer

Jeff has over 16 years of art direction and graphic design work ranging from leading agencies to mom and pop shops. No one is too big or too small for a great creative solution. He’s a listener, problem solver, all around super nice, and brings value to any project or team.

When he’s not designing the creativity doesn’t stop. You’ll find him out exploring his home terrain in Northern California and capturing the gorgeous landscapes along with his sidekick, Charlie as an amateur/professional photographer. And when the creativity is put on slow drip, you’ll find him CrossFitting, olympic lifting, playing sand volleyball or hunting for that next great bite of food in the area.

Jeff grew up in the midwest and called Kansas City, MO home for many years before moving to Santa Cruz, California where he now calls home.



In a Way, these Kind People Paid Me so they Could Eventually Write Nice Things About Me.
