My name is Jeremy Howell and I am an Art Director & Graphic Designer from Wall Township, NJ. After I graduated from Ramapo College of New Jersey, I worked for a boutique design shop in Columbus, Ohio known as House of Krauss. This is where I learned all about “good clean design.” I focused on creating high-end design collateral, and developed the art of client interaction & presentation. My priority was to learn everything I could about design whether it was working on complex pieces, sketching storyboards or working with professional photographers and illustrators.
The next stop in my career took me to an agency known as Interactive Marketing Group (IMG). I learned basic Web Development and honed my skills as a Print Designer and Art Director. After 5 years at Interactive Marketing Group, I decided that it was time to move on, and took a job as a Web Designer at LexisNexis, Martindale-Hubbell. Within 3 years I became a Senior Designer. I was trusted with the task of managing challenging clients, high-yield accounts, mentoring junior designers and handling special projects, all while meeting tight deadlines and exceeding client expectations.
Furthering my career, I decided to step into the limelight and take a Senior Designer position at Blue Fountain Media on Madison Ave, in NYC. One year later I became an Art Director and have loved every minute of it. I work with a team of outstanding designers, and fantastic clients who are constantly pushing us to do better work. The environment is exactly what i pictured it to be and I wouldn’t change a thing.
From a creative standpoint, I strive to work with creatives who share my passion for creating top-notch, quality-work delivered on time, on budget and to extremely satisfied clients.
