Know the rules like a pro so you can break them like an artist. — Pablo Picasso
Jeff always knew he was going to be a graphic designer. His fourth grade teacher once noted on a report card, “Jeff will be a great commercial artist someday.” At age 11, he was asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” and responded, “I want to own a design firm.”
Jeff’s mix of computer programming, drawing, and commercial art instruction helped to develop the necessary skills to combine design and website development for a commercial environment. Jeff Hester went on to win many awards and was the youngest person to become an instructor at Metro Tech, teaching graphic design software to high school and secondary students.
For down time Jeff can be found spending quality time with family, playing guitar, and riding mountain bikes. Jeff lives in southwest Oklahoma City with wife, Jenny, and three sons, Calon, Archer and Garrett.
