    Hey there! I'm Jason Longsworth, your go-to guy for web and graphic design from sunny Los Angeles, California. My love for the arts started in high school, thanks to a fantastic newspaper course that hooked me to Photoshop. It's been an amazing ride ever since, dabbling in everything from print and mobile designs to national ads, killer presentations, augmented reality adventures, sleek websites, logos, and so much more. For me, design is all about making meaningful connections, diving deep into the challenges faced by users or clients, and crafting creative solutions that hit the mark.

In my 15+ years of experience, I received many messages from clients thanking me for actual marketing results, and great looking work. It's the reason why I like working as a creative professional today. Results and appreciation. I've seen my work win new business as well as creative awards (which only matter to creative people apparently). Most importantly, winning the hearts and minds of audiences (or people) both near and far, whether they are at home working or browsing the news on their latest smart phones. I've created and designed advertising campaigns and marketing materials for digital, mobile, print, video, and web. (Yep, web is probably the same thing as digital - just checking) I have both agency and client experience with companies you've both heard of and also the next generation of tech start-ups.

    Amanda sure knows how to mix it up. She consistently blends her traditional print sensibilities with some wild digital techniques to create incredibly original designs. A fresh-faced publisher by the age of 21, Amanda has run some biggie national magazines and even started several of her own. Her quirky, humorous style often comes through in her design via little tongue-in-cheek touches that are uniquely hers (just look closely and you're sure to spot the goofiness). Amanda has created some rocking designs for major brands like Disney, Universal Studios, FOX Studios, Paramount, Fiji Water, BCBG Max Azria, Honda, Wal*Mart, Teleflora, Shorewood Realty, Re/Max, Sotheby's, Berkshire Hathaway (BHHS), Keller Williams, Coldwell Banker, CBRE, Capital One, Bank of America, Raymond James, Bank of New York, Tiffany & Co. and Cartier. A diehard design geek, she can (spookily) name fonts on sight. With a BFA in Computer Animation, it should come as no surprise to find Amanda wandering around the office dressed like a cartoon. Well, one of those kick-butt comic book characters, of course. Why im talking in the third person, is beyond me, but prolly too late to go back!
