Jeff Breidenbach, Creative Director

Jeff leads the branding and design process by putting himself in the other guy’s shoes. His strategic work cuts to the core of what must be communicated, providing clarity, meaning and motivation.

Jeff graduated magna cum laude from the University of Cincinnati’s acclaimed graphic design program. He has worked across the country, gaining experience in New York, Boston and San Francisco where he co-founded Argus, llc. Since inception clients have included Amazon, Bank of America, BRIDGE Housing and Johnson & Johnson. His work has been honored by many of the top industry competitions including Communication Arts, Graphis, Print, AR100 and AIGA, SEGD, Type Directors Club, IDSA, and the Mercomm Arc Awards. Jeff has also been a design instructor at California College of Art and the Academy of Art University, both in San Francisco.

Branding and design are not his only creative outlets. Cooking, designing furniture and creating art projects with his two daughters help round out his life. Jeff’s mild obsession for fly fishing won’t get in the way of project schedules, but he may bore you with a fish story or two.
