James Lewis, Jr. – Designer / Owner

After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Computer Graphic Design from the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, I jumped in to website design and maintenance at Rackspace Managed Hosting. I started working with a small, but highly talented team troubleshooting, designing, and promoting Rackspace — which is today one of the largest web hosting companies in the world.

For more than 16 years, I have been called upon by some cool clients to create websites — the San Antonio Spurs, Rackspace, Rosario’s Mexican Restaurant, Silo Elevated Cuisine — just to name a few.

What separates me from the rest of the pack is my experience working with some of the brightest minds at Rackspace. Working with people like Todd Morey and Johathan Byrce have helped me understand how to “build” a good website. Aside from being grounded in the web hosting environment, I have also had the pleasure of working with some great designers like Michael Karshis. Working side-by-side with creative gurus helps me think not only out side the box, but it helps me think about why the box exists. It’s not good enough to just make something cool. Anyone can make something cool. Good design is when you make the complicated seem simple!

Michelle Vogel Account Executive / Designer

I was born in Aberdeen, Scotland to a military family. I’ve traveled the world experiencing many cultures and meeting great people along the way!

After graduating from St. Mary’s University with a Bachelor of Arts in English Communications and a focus in Business, I jumped into a position that allowed me to pursue my passion in people. I took on a role as an Account Executive and excelled in sales/staffing.

I’m a former professional sports dancer and danced for the San Antonio Spurs, Rampage and Stars. I have an in-depth knowledge in various areas of the entertainment industry and media and wanted to combine my love of people with my creative spirit.

I joined the J 12 Designs family and brought my client relations experience, organizational skills and strategic focus to the team. I design and manage projects as well as guide clients through the creative process.

 

Deanna Dilworth – Graphic Designer

 

I’m currently completing my Associate of Applied Science Degree in Communication Design, at San Antonio College. I wanted to get my feet wet out in the real world and was determined to get an internship. That led me to J 12 Designs.

After working in child care for four years, I finally decided to pursue something that I’m very passionate about, without becoming a starving artist. I’m fortunate to have met such knowledgeable, and experienced professors while attending San Antonio College. I’m excited to have joined J 12 Designs and look forward to the real-world experiences, challenges, and knowledge.

Jeannette Serrano-Mendoza – Graphic Designer

 

I studied Pre-Communication Design and minored in Japanese at Texas Sate University in San Marcos. Due to personal matters, I had to take a break from school. However, I couldn’t ignore the feeling of leaving my education and my passion for graphic design incomplete. I decided to enroll at San Antonio College and graduated with an Associates of Applied Science in Communication Design. Thanks to the guidance of my professors and mentors at SAC, I was offered an amazing internship opportunity with J 12 Designs. I am eager to work alongside such a talented group of people and cannot wait the challenges ahead.
