Each time a client presents me with a problem or objective, I see the beginning of a mini-adventure. As your creative partner, I believe my job is to get beyond expected solutions, and into the land of, "How can this do more", or even "How can this be amazing". I believe in sound strategy plus the element of surprise. 

I've held positions as Creative Director, Art Director and Designer at Portland, Bend and
St. Louis firms. I currently freelance for agencies and clients. I've helped brands like Nike, Adidas, Coca-Cola, Subway, Providence, Dr. Martens, Daimler, Trimet, Habitat for Humanity, Montana Lottery and Idaho Power. My craft is art direction, design and writing. My passion is watching ideas come to life.

Studio Dooley is me, Jeff, often along with my trusted creative collaborators. We're located in Portland, Oregon. You can work with me individually, or with a team built specifically around your opportunity. Either way, expect to work with creative, account, strategy and digital pros deep in experience and practiced in craft.

If you've ever found yourself saying any of the following, we should talk:

"I'm looking for someone who understands the importance of Brand in everything."

"Where'd all the creative, hard working freelancers go?"

"This thing needs to kick ass."
