About Me

With almost 20 years of experience I have taken some of the world's biggest brands to new heights and helped mom & pop operations achieve their dreams (and everything else in between). I have filled the shoes of both graphic designer and art director while working on projects as varied as packaging design to fashion design. I've built branded environments and brand guidelines. Laying out storyboards for TV spots or art directing recipe shots? Done that too. You name it and I've probably done it. But who is the real Jonathon Ortlieb, you ask?

Born and raised in Milwaukee, WI I have lived in Colorado for 10 years. I have a wife and three children. I am an avid chef and have even owned my own food truck. I like backcountry skiing and being outdoors as much as I like staying home and playing board games. I once won a pickle-eating contest and my favorite color is Pantone Rhodamine Red.
