About

 

Hi, I'm Jeff Meakins.
A creative director and designer living in the bay area.

Before moving to my current home, San Francisco, I lived in Portland Oregon for twelve years working at a variety of amazing studios and agencies with some of the most amazing thinkers and makers out there. I have been in San Francisco for over two years as a Creative Director leading interaction and visual design efforts for a variety of clients.

I believe that great design is a team sport. Each project has a variety of key contributors from designers, managers, strategists, developers, writers and key clients that make the work exciting. My job is to understand the bigger problem that needs to be solved and put together multidisciplinary teams that can help solve that problem through design thinking and craft. I believe design should have purpose and meaning delivered in a variety of impactful ways that best tell a brand's story.

If you'd like to collaborate get in touch via email.
