(MINNEAPOLIS, MN) Splice Here, the creative-driven, full-service post house specializing in advertising, broadcast, film and multimedia projects, has added veteran designer Jeff Stevens as their Creative Director. Prior to joining Splice Here, Stevens spent six years at the design/post house Charlex, New York, as senior art director/designer.
"A designer of Jeff's caliber is a rare find and we are looking for him to put his own creative stamp on the Splice Here design team and take our creative to a whole new level," Clayton Condit, the company's founder and editor, said. "One look at his reel and you see what a diverse aesthetic he brings with him."
A native of Virginia and graduate of the highly-respected Savannah College of Art & Design, Savannah, GA, Stevens joined Charlex in 2001. There he worked on a variety of challenging creative projects and managed the company's design team. Some of his noteworthy credits include the M&M spot "Kaleidoscope," which was inducted into New York's Museum of Modern Art's permanent motion graphics exhibit.
In addition, Stevens worked on national campaigns for Budweiser, Coca-Cola, Toyota, Cingular Wireless, Motorola, Acuvue, Pantene and AIG, among many others. Stevens also created and designed the Charlex corporate website. Before joining Charlex, Stevens worked as a freelance designer in Paris and New York.
For Stevens, joining Splice Here represents an opportunity to build on the company's already strong creative reputation, while adding his own well-honed creative sensibility to the mix. It also represents an opportunity for Stevens to escape the New York City pace.
"I grew up in Northern Virginia, which shares the same beautiful qualities as Minneapolis, and I'm ready to get back to that way of life," said Stevens. "Splice Here is an amazing company comprised of many talented professionals with great hearts and spirit," said Stevens. "They have the foundation, drive and talent to maintain a footprint in the Midwest editing and post-production industry for a long time. My goal is to make Splice Here as well-known for their design work as they are for their editorial and finishing."
