Third Prize, iPod Shuffle
My Name: Jeff Newsom
My Company Name: None at the moment
A little bit about what I do and my previous work: The best job I ever had was in California as a senior designer at Superior Electrical Advertising. I got to work on a wide variety of levels in architectural, structural and creative design. I had the pleasure of writing entire sign criteria and guidelines ranging from local strip malls, to writing entire city codes. I would really love to do that kind of work again, but have found Iowa to be a little lacking on the creative employment positions. And in this economy, 20 years of experience is getting harder to justify as an acceptable.
A little bit about me and who I am away from work: I was born and raised in rural Iowa and lived in Los Angeles, CA for the better part of the last decade. I was a daily surfer and miss the ocean and mountains with a passion. I love spending time with my 3 yr old daughter and watching her learn and grow. I love gardening, photography and furniture making if I ever had time to do any of it again.
Something about me that no one knows: I have a titanium spine, literally and figuratively.
