Jeremy Culp

Sr. Designer (Our Daily Bread Ministries) & Freelance Designer

Grand Rapids, MI, USA
Professional graphic designer with over 12 years of experience that includes freelance, agency, and in-house design. I am based out of Grand Rapids, Michigan, but do work across the Midwest.

I am customer focused and strive to achieve not only an aesthetically superior look for you, but also understand that your materials need to compete in a real marketplace. Therefore I will not compromise the function and purpose of your needs to achieve an ivory tower design.

I utilize current hardware and software to maintain speed and efficiency in my work and I am an Adobe Certified Expert in InDesign.

I enjoy layout and design tremendously, but also am skilled in digital illustration and concept development.

I also enjoy working with photography from both sides of the camera. I love to take photos, but also enjoy working with them in the digital dark room. I am skilled at photo retouching and restoration.

Finally, when I am not working in front of a screen I am often found in my make-shift work shop (corner of the garage) working at my lathe making any number of hand-turned items.
