After receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Jonathan pursued a career path that would lead to over 25 years as a graphic designer and art director, garnering experience in both corporate and independent design environments. He has developed creative design solutions for a diverse range of projects, with a strong emphasis on brand identity, package design, and marketing materials for clients in the Napa Valley wine industry. Since 2003, he has helmed Jonathan Meeks Design + Photography, his independent design firm based in Portland, Oregon.
Jonathan is a graphic designer, photographer, art and music lover—and, when the creative spark ignites him—an occasional painter. When not designing the next Lillie Sabine project, you might find him wandering the beaches of Southern California, practicing yoga, dreaming of Paris, or exploring the live music scene (once COVID is a thing of the past). Jonathan lives in Vista with his wife Terri and trusty sidekick Hugo.
