Art is my passion – Creating beautiful images and showcasing the extraordinary in a picture. For the past 12 years, I’ve run my own business working with ad agencies and art directors across the U.S. Before that, I worked for an ad agency for 20 years. When I want to have fun, the guitar comes out playing some blues or rock, spending time with my family – my wife and 2 teenagers – and enjoying a good dark beer.

A lover and creator of art and illustration, Jill’s passion is to help people and companies tell stories through the many different avenues of design. Currently a senior designer at an agency in Dayton, Ohio, she also enjoys intermittent freelance assignments. Married to her high school sweetheart, Jill and her husband live on a small farm in rural Preble county. They have two wonderful little boys, so when Jill’s not working on design goodness, she can be found devoting time to puzzles, toy trains and tractors, dirt removal, and all other things her tots (and husband) get themselves into.

In addition, his work has been published in leading industry trades such as Graphis (widely regarded as an international bastion of design and visual imagery) and Print (which annually features the most comprehensive survey of graphic design in the US) magazines. Further, Doubet is the proud recipient of a national American Advertising Award (ADDY).

A self-professed minimalist, Doubet believes it's the simplest and cleanest ideas that breakthrough a saturated marketplace. When not expanding a company’s position in the marketplace, you can find him recording music, golfing, fishing, hiking, and spending time with his family. And not necessarily in that order.
