Hello, my name is Jason Heisel. I love to create brands. I have been doing it for almost 20 years and it is what makes me happy. They say “Do what you love and you will never work another day in your life.” … and I surely believe this to be true. I’m not saying that everyday is peaches and cream, but the majority of the time, I can’t think of another thing I’d rather be doing.
I’m a proud graduate of Ringling College of Art and Design. After receiving my Associates degree from Manatee Community College, I stayed another year to take courses to help me decide what it was that I wanted to do with my life. Graphic Design was one of those courses. On competition of that class, I decided to step it up a notch and applied to Ringling, where I was placed among some of the most talented and inspiring individuals (teachers and students) in the field.
Immediately following graduation, I moved to Dallas and took an associate art director position in one of the top advertising agencies in the area. I worked on nationally recognized clients such a McDonalds, Coca-Cola, Stanley Steemer, Texas Titans and Community Coffee. It was definitely a rewarding and enlightening experience.
After a three year stint, I moved back to Sarasota to be closer to my family and held designer positions at some of the well known agencies in town. I decided to take all the knowledge and wisdom that I had acquired over the many years and start Heisel Design.
A little about me: I love to travel to far-off lands with my significant other, Agata. Exploring new places and cultures is the best education that one can receive. I am fortunate to have a wife from the beautiful country of Poland. I am learning how to speak Polish. Troche (a little.)
Everything you see on this website, from logo to full brand, is my creation. I truly enjoy seeing a brand come together and educating my clients about building a strong and lasting brand identity. I hope that we can work together to build you an amazing one also.
