Jack Muldowney, Founder

Long agreeing with the adage that 'good design is the backbone to good business,' Jack has applied his Midwestern sensibility to help clients of all sizes achieve this notion. With over 10 years of experience in graphic design, he has worked with multiple brands and collaborated with several talented creatives across the globe. Prior to living in Chicago, Jack called Michigan home, where he earned his BA in Advertising, with a focus in Art History, from Michigan State University.
