Owner of Eric Jacob Designs for 22 yrs
Can you explain how and why you ended up owning this business?
I was a graphic designer at Florida Trend Magazine and got laid off so I figured I would just start my own business and never looked back.
What was your passion or greatest motivator?
My childhood friend’s dad was a graphic artist and at 12 yrs old I saw what he did for work in his studio and I knew this is what I wanted to do. I told my “guidance” counselor and she said to focus on math and science...
What would you say your business is most known for?
Integrity, transparency and face to face personal service. I do what I say I’m going to do and I don’t take on projects that I can’t do. I take what I do seriously and feel I have earned a reputation of being above average at it, but I like to have fun doing it.
What has been your proudest moment within this business?
Honestly, it’s when a client compliments me on my effort, and those efforts could be as a simple branding, marketing campaigns or social media project to help them and improve their business.
