Hi, my name is Jake
I am a Web Admin / Front-end Developer
Working locally here in beautiful Bellingham, WA, I have built and managed websites for PCF Web Solutions, which hosts over 130 websites. Before becoming a Web developer, I spent 8 years as a remote freelance Graphic Designer, creating a variety of print and digital materials. I have experience in logo design, iconography, typography, illustration, and SEO marketing strategies.
Let's work together!
WBA Policy Center
Whatcom Business Alliance
WBA’s previous site was lacking in both visual appeal and technical functionality. I equipped them with an attractive site and gave them the right tools to promote their message.More Details
PCF Web Solutions
Fully Integrated CMS Template
While working for PCF Web Solutions, I built a platform with a multitude of customizable features for clients to easily choose from. This allowed the streamlining the work flow while maintaining uniqueness of each product.More Details
Wanting to experiment with a softer and more digital form of illustration, I was inspired by classic anime shows like Cowboy Bebop and wanted to sum up the feel of the story into one poster design.More Details
Lola Rath Album Art
This is an example of one of my digital hyperrealist paintings--one of my favorite forms of art. This was completed using only digital brushes in Photoshop. I made this for the band I was performing in and wanted something that would look clean and iconic.
Hand-drawn & Digital
My wife, Adrienne, was given a job to redesign a new label for a product and asked me to draw a shell for her client. I made a simple sketch and later added texture digitally. I love the way this turned out and I think it's a great representation of our strengths as graphic designers.
12 Stones Logo
A power couple, who are starting their own business together, were wanting a logo to stand apart from the typical crossfit logos that are currently out there. Not so aggressive. Strong, but neither too masculine nor feminine - well-balanced.More Details
This was a logo made to help brand a fellow graphic designer. Limiting myself to the use of only the letter "A", I was able to create an identity that focused on the essential elements of the letterforms.
Nations Media vol. 4
I had the privilege to contribute in the layout for two articles for a recent issue this beautiful & inspiring magazine: "Emissaries at the Edge" & "Civil Righteousness"More Details
