About the owner
Jacob majored in Graphic Design at the University of Central Missouri. He was an intern for Inter-State Studio & Publishing Co. and, after lots of hard work, was offered an in-house position as a full-time designer. This is now his third year working for Inter-State.
At first he balanced his day job with personal creative work, like illustration and designing for fake clients, which garnered attention from a few local businesses. Eventually, he was approached by larger businesses, so he decided to start his own design studio—Lemon Creative Co. This allowed him to work on tons of other cool projects, from identities for emerging brands to printed materials for current events.
His creative approach—no matter the medium—is to research and identify pain points within the industry he is designing for. This allows him to focus on those issues and resolve them through thoughtful identity design, marketing materials and copy-writing—allowing the business’s design to stand out in their market by filling the gaps within that market.
For Jacob, design is about much more than making something look good. He believes that great design can bring a community together, support positive messages and touch consumers on a deeper, more personal level. Regardless of what he’s working on, his goal, ultimately, is to use his work to be a positive influence in his own community.
