I always appreciate putting a face with a name, so maybe you'll enjoy doing the same. I'm Jeff Baham, a freelance graphic designer based in Northern California. I'm the Art Director for a group of publications in the Silicon Valley, and I received my degree in design from San José State University after narrowly avoiding a degree in music. I've worked professionally in various art departments for well over 20 years.
I work heavily in the print industry, and some of my strengths are typography, identity design, and photo retouching. I've also created numerous web sites, including the award-winning DoomBuggies.com. Some of my past graphic design clients include Apple Computer, Intel Corporation, and Billy Graham Ministries... but enough with the resumé.
Sound and fury.
I'm also a musician, and I've been in a rock band, recorded under a Grammy-nominated producer, and produced numerous professional Haunted House soundtracks (including one created for and broadcast on Radio Disney for various Halloween promotions). I regularly do volunteer work for my church as a pianist. Additionally, I currently perform in a band that plays exclusively in prison to share a little positive and optimistic spiritual energy with men in a dreary and often bleak place. I've found volunteer work to be the most rewarding outlet for my artistic ventures.
I live in the Silicon Valley, and try to get down to Disneyland at least three times a year for creative renewal. Being surrounded with the product of so much collective imagination is like finding an oasis in the desert of mediocrity that pop culture often becomes. I simply find that in terms of my artistic nature, Disneyland is a refreshing place to be.
I served as a member of the 2003 Disneyland Creative Advisory Council. During this time, our small group gathered regularly at the Team Disney Anaheim offices to meet with the resort's management to discuss the public's experience with the park, and to review various marketing projects, and new or proposed merchandise. And In 2005, I was included in Daily Variety's special issue dedicated to Disneyland's 50th Anniversary. Two of my websites (DoomBuggies.com and TellNoTales.com) have been tapped to collaborate with Walt Disney Pictures in grassroots promotions for major motion picutres.
