We are a small, multidisciplinary design studio.

Working with brands we love and doing a lot of different things keeps us happy (and busy).

  • Jessica Maniatis

She has since worked with clients the world over, developing solutions that not only help them stand out, but give them the confidence to take their brand to the next step.

  • Meaghan Kane

    Designer

    A Maine native, Meaghan originally joined JSGD as an intern. Not able to stay away for long, she came on as a full-time designer in 2015. She likes to have her hands in just about everything, but most of her affection lies in web design - aiming to create beautiful and seamless user experiences. She believes that every pixel serves a purpose and although complexity can tell you a lot, simplicity can tell even more.

    You’ll most likely find her snapping too many photos of her corgi, planning her next adventure, and probably wearing something black.

  • Janine Stafford

    Coordinator

    Janine is JSGD's in-house whip-cracker! Working as a creative production coordinator & stylist, Janine has honed a passion for organization & facilitation. She understands the importance of (and is slightly obsessed with) consistency in brand design and storytelling - whether that be through content, photography or marketing efforts. When she isn’t knee deep in a project, she can usually be found perfecting her lip-sync skills.

  • Mitchell Brown

    Designer

    Born and raised in the midwest, Mitchell graduated from Herron School of Art & Design and spent his first few years after school learning the ins-and-outs of the advertising #agencylife. As fun as that was, his passion for design and desire to work with local independent businesses brought him to JSGD. Aside from that, he spends way too much time pruning his personal plant collection, collecting vintage ties, and day dreaming of one day becoming a mountain man and retiring to a cabin deep in the woods.
