Jeremy started Lifeboat Creative (formerly J2 Design Solutions) in 2002. He has over 20 years of branding experience in all facets of media including website development, graphic design, corporate identity, and advertising. Before founding Lifeboat Creative, he learned his trade at one of the top corporate identity firms in the country. He’s the captain of this ship. (He doesn’t require that we salute him, yet.)
We have a great crew at Lifeboat Creative. A lot of agencies like to tout how quirky everyone is: Chucky collects arcade game tokens! While we certainly each have our quirks (who doesn’t), we want you to know we can do the job. We are educated, talented and knowledgable. We are more than qualified to do the job. Let us wow you.our abilities
Jennifer came to Lifeboat Creative in 2007. She has a degree from The University of Texas (Hook ‘em!) where she started in video production. Her passion for graphics led her into print and web design and with nearly 20 years of experience in advertising and design, she has earned her stripes as our Creative Director. Luckily she looks good in stripes - vertical stripes mostly.
Alli brought a ray of sunshine in with her when she joined us in September 2016. With a bachelor's degree in Marketing and Entrepreneurship from Wichita State University (Go Shockers!), she knows what she’s doing and does it well. She handles clients and our team members all while remaining bubbly and cheery. How does she do it?
Ashley came to Lifeboat in 2017 and is the perfect addition to our Account Management team. She earned her Marketing degree from Emporia State University. While small in stature, she’ll gladly take on any challenge and do so with a charming smile.
Vanessa breezed in to Lifeboat on an autumn day in 2017. Labeled a social butterfly as a child, she wears her pin proudly as our Social Media Manager. She has three degrees - a BS from The University of Kansas in Journalism, BA from Wichita State in English Lit and Comp, and a Masters from Fort Hays State in Education. She’s also a lifestyle blogger. Yep, she does it all!

Chelsea started in 2014. With her sweet demeanor and good heart, she was hired to be the front desk receptionist; however, her organizational skills and passion to know more forced us to give her more duties. She’s still the sun-shiny face of Lifeboat Creative, but she does much more than that and we are lucky to have her.
Mike moved to Lifeboat Creative in 2011. He has a graphic design degree from Hutchinson Community College. With a keen eye, warm soul and kickass mustache, Mike is the kind of guy you want on your team. He’s the go-to logo man and can whip up an amazing design while others are still just brainstorming.
Christian came to Lifeboat Creative in 2014. He is a consummate creator who earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting degree from Wichita State University.

Laura made the move to Lifeboat Creative in 2014. She has a degree in graphic design and many many years of experience in both print and web design. She has vast knowledge of user experience and interface design, and she always designs with the end result and functionality in mind. You can always count on this talented lady to deliver.
Fidel started at Lifeboat Creative in 2017 and he rounds out our talented design team. He has a graphic design degree from Wichita State University and while from Garden City, is originally from Guadalajara, México. He is obviously fluent in Spanish which is ¡Fantástico!
Jake rappelled over to Lifeboat Creative in May 2018. He has a degree in Internetworking Management from Butler Community College and is a resourceful, quick learner when it comes to new technologies. He's forward thinking which is exactly the type of person we like to harness at Lifeboat.
Jacob became a delightful addition to our team in 2018. He graduated from Newman University with two degrees; one in Information Technology and the other in Management of Information Systems. He believes the Internet is one of the most important tools humanity has ever created, but prefers to use it for good not evil.
