Jon Setzen
Creative Direction & Design

I'm a Designer with more than 15 years experience. I currently live and work in Los Angeles, California. In addition to my job as Creative Director at Bluebeam, Inc. I also run the Los Angeles Chapter of CreativeMornings - a monthly design lectures series with chapters in more than 150 cities Worldwide. I pride myself of clean, simple design, engaging print creative and unique brand stories and development. I try and only work on projects with nice people who I would also invite into my home. This website contains some of the things I've worked on somewhat recently. I lecture about design and branding at conferences domestically and abroad.

I was recently interviewed for The Great Discontent. It's full of more information you'd ever want to know about me.
