We are Industry of Hues.
We are not a factory; rather, a thriving industry. Great ideas donʼt multiply along with staff size. Instead of filling a studio and creating massive overhead, we are focused on developing tight-knit teams of passionate people with varied expertise. We love lean and mean. It’s good for us and for you.
Our team is sharp, resourceful and up for any challenge. In addition to being remarkably skilled, we are hands-on designers. Our clients deal directly with the people producing the work, so nothing gets lost in translation.
We pride ourselves on assembling a custom group of talent for specific project goals, scale of work, timelines, and budgets.

Jeff St John
Jeff has worked in the design field in one capacity or another since 2001. Originally a fine arts major, he became enamored with typography and layout, and never looked back, eventually earning his BFA in Graphic Design from San Diego State University.
Before collaborating in the independent design space with Alexis in 2016, Jeff worked at a local design agency in San Diego’s East Village for several years. Over the course of his career he has worked on projects across a multitude of industries, always excited to put on a new hat that he hasn’t previously worn. He is constantly looking to push himself and continue growing as a creative, whether that’s learning a new skill in the design space, or picking his way though a banjo medley of The Allman Brothers Band.
An avid explorer of cafes and coffee shops, especially after living in Seattle, Washington for two years, he can often be found with a latte and laptop discussing the merits of heavy metal music and its impact on the larger creative sphere with any poor sucker willing to listen.
