Seattle-based design office working to bring soul back to branding and ephemera.

Originally from North-Central Appalachia, growing up in a place so heavily shaped by working-class culture had a profound impact on his aesthetic, perspective, and, most assuredly, his work ethic. Those sensibilities are never too far removed from the center of his mind. Jordan is hell-bent on helping legacy brands re-establish their place in the market, and new ones carve out a home of their own.
Studio Workhorse operates from the belief that a well-crafted strategy paired with bold design can break trends and set brands apart from the noise. Driven by a love for creative storytelling, Jordan will never shy away from even the most complicated design problems.

“Working with Studio Workhorse on the Huckberry rebrand was a dream. In addition to being wildly creative and original, Jordan has no ego, is a great listener and highly strategic, and works his ass off, living up to his agency’s name. It’s why Studio Workhorse has become Huckberry’s go-to creative agency.”
Andy Forch
Co-Founder, Huckberry
“Before Jordan jumped on board to rebrand and help build King State from the ground up, it was hard to ever imagine someone being able to bring to life what was in my head. He took the mix of all my ideas turned it into one cohesive vision. Every detail was thought through without ever feeling over-processed or forced. Fully, there’s no KS without Studio Workhorse.”
Nathan Young
Co-Founder, King State
“He’s a master of digging into the DNA of a company and moving it forward without losing a connection to the past. He’s a brilliant iterator, and he brings a high level of craft and a wide range of influences to his work. He’s been able to help us get to new places and to see things in different ways. In fact he’s one of my favorite go-to people when I need new thinking or explorations on an idea. If you can’t tell already, I’m a huge fan and have counted on Jordan to help move The Co-op forward at some fairly critical moments.”
