About Jesse Sutherland
I’m a designer at heart, I’ve been designing things since I was a kid. Starting with greeting cards, bookmarks, my own games, and whatever else I could think up. Nothing motivates me more than a project. I thrive on them, and when I get excited about one, I have trouble stopping until its finished. I lose sleep over them.
I took some design classes in high school, and I just knew that I wanted to be a designer. While attending college in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, I added Advertising as a second major. They’re both all about the idea behind the work, not just the pretty exterior. Lately, I’ve been really into web design, but still enjoy print and whatever else.
Today, I work at a small agency named Morsekode. We do marketing, branding, and advertising for companies in the music, technology, healthcare and retail environments. I specifically work on the design aspect, and often I work on the web design that we do.
While working, I enjoying listening to good music like Caedmon’s Call, Mae, John Mayer, Jack Johnson, Shane & Shane, The Fray, Relient K, Switchfoot, and others. I’m not exactly sure how to describe my musical tastes, somewhere between acoustic, rock, punk, and jazz. When I have the time and motivation, I enjoy strumming my old Washburn guitar and playing my favorite songs.
Other than projects and design work, what inspires me is the outdoors. I enjoy taking a few camping and backpacking trips each summer. I’ve climbed 3 of the Colorado Fourteeners (only 50 more to go!). I love to play Frisbee Golf and Ultimate Frisbee with friends. I love using my new Digital Rebel XTi taking photos of nature and architecture.
My wife is a beautiful girl who I met in college. She’s a 2nd grade teacher, and she acts like it too. She puts up with me joins me on my crazy adventures. Pretty much she’s the best thing thats happened to me!
