JEFFREY PADIA
Design Consultant

Jeffrey has a deep respect for architecture, based on his early training as an architect and later as an environmental graphic designer. In his 20 years in creating signage for the built environment, Jeffrey has worked on medical, civic, retail, residential and corporate projects, and also collaborated with many signage fabricators. He has an understanding for the possibilities and limitations of signage and maintaining the project aesthetic without overrunning the budget. He is passionate about contributing to and creating better places and spaces through creative, well-thought-out graphic applications. Jeffrey holds a Bachelor degree in Architecture and Graphic Design from California College of the Arts.

“I really love designing a tight set of construction documents, including all the important details so the fabricator can bring it to life.”

  • Favorite book(s): A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson and Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris
  • Favorite TV show: 30 Rock – some of the best writing on TV, ever.
  • Favorite movie: The Bird Cage – if you ever need a laugh it has some waiting for you.
