ABOUT JUSTIN DESTEFANO
You’re one of the founding members of Mad Men Marketing – how did it all begin?
At the end of my time with FSU, I interned in Jacksonville to finish off my degree. It wasn’t long after that JD came to me with the idea of starting a company. With his experience and knowledge in the Marketing/Advertising world and everything I learned in college, it was an easy decision. It’s been an honor to have been a part of Mad Men Marketing from the beginning. To be able to see the growth of the company along with working with some of the brightest, most creative minds in Jacksonville and beyond has made this career into something more. We have helped everyone from local businesses to Fortune 500 Companies, showing the flexibility of our company and our ability to adapt to any situation.
What’s your favorite aspect of the work you do here?
Creating something from scratch with Graphic Design that will help our clients get their name out there and advance in their industry is still a beautiful thing to me. 10 years in and going!
What fuels your creativity?
My creativity is fueled by everything I see in the world. Video Games/TV Shows/Movies, Music, fellow Designers and Artists, different patterns or designs, it’s all in how you view things. Social media has also brought about a great community for Designers to showcase work and keep a close eye on trends in Design and Marketing.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
When I’m not working I’m usually hanging out with my family. Possibly playing soccer, guitar or video games. Or I could be watching a game or something sci-fi\fantasy or comedy. But mostly, my free time is spent patiently sitting at home, waiting for live music and sporting events to come back!
