Jeff Gifford has been gifted with artistic abilities since a young age. While he grew up enjoying the fine arts of drawing and painting, which he focused on throughout his early years and into college, he also enjoyed technology, and putting the two together couldn’t be a better fit than in the almost twenty years' experience he has in Graphic Design. From creating newspaper ad designs with the local newspaper in the beginning stages of his career, to product catalogs, print materials, website front pages and video to eventually gaining his strongest experience while at Zondervan Publishing House for eight years designing packaging, video, and book covers.
In 2010 he began a new journey on his own by the grace of many relationships created at Zondervan and past companies, allowing it to become a successful freelance business. Now he serves many clients from Zondervan, Our Daily Bread Ministries, Nazarene Publishing House, Bethany Christian Services, Elk Lake Publishing, local ad agencies, and many independent authors and clients. He creates ads (social media, print, and digital), and other print materials, book covers, branding, and video editing and design.
He has a passion for serving his clients by focusing on their needs and being readily available to help their product get the best it deserves.
Jeff lives with his wife and three children in Jenison, Michigan.
