Before going full-time freelance in April 2018, I most recently was Creative Director at ServedIN, a tech-forward foodservice and hospitality startup based out of Chicago, IL. In this role I was tasked with building the brand from scratch, and business development & marketing plan for what we deemed "Craft-at-Scale." ServedIN is currently in a proof-of-concept phase and my work is ongoing.

Just before that I was Creative Designer with Fox Restaurant Concepts, an Arizona based Restaurant incubator with 15 concepts, over 50 locations, in 9 states. Brands include True Food Kitchen, Flower Child, North Italia, and Culinary Dropout. Work included typical print & marketing collateral, menu design, as well as creative direction on large murals and in-store installations. I'm lucky enough to have FRC as a client still and continue working on amazing projections for them. 

I was the Art Director for Winsight, LLC in their Events Division for twelve years. During that time, the company grew from ten employees to nearly 300. Responsibilities included creative direction for seven large events a year, including visual theming & branding, execution of all deliverables, print & design marketing collateral, digital activations & scenic productions, and maintaining brand standards across various platforms. All of that as well as an acting Associate Producer for all live events.Certainly not your typical creative, I enjoy working with a sales team, budgeting, and crafting a Keynote deck.



WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY

In my nearly 30 years of working in marketing, I've never met a more positive, harder working designer than Tony. He brings the "do whatever it takes" phrase to a whole new level, which is a rarity in the design world. His creativity matches his work ethic--top  notch. He loves design and it shows. Share your vision with him on what you need, hand off the ball and he'll carry it over the goal line. The reality is, if I could convince him to move to Illinois, you wouldn't have this opportunity for him to join your team.

We have been working with Tony Jensen for over five years on very complex projects with lots of moving parts and varying production techniques. He always has had a good handle on the due dates and deliverables and understands what it takes to get a project from file to end use. He makes sure we have files that can be printed and communicates well throughout the process. His level of professionalism is refreshing and he works well under tight deadlines and the stress that those deadlines naturally exude.
~ Anthony Narducci, President of O'Neil Printing


Anthony is a one of a kind creative individual that fits my graphic design needs perfectly. Working with me to craft unique and original works that amaze and inspire.
~ Ross Simon, Owner & Operator of Bitter & Twisted Cocktail Parlour


Tony has a strong eye for design, capable of creating and fully executing a brand, an idea, and a project from start to finish…practically alone, doing all the heavy lifting! He exhibits core leadership values in his approach to projects with others and is an overall amazing human being.
