Jerry Hodge - With Beard

The Three Most Important Things

I’m a designer.

I’m an artist.

I love tacos.

A Little More About Me

My name is Jerry Hodge. I’m a designer of many sorts living in Kansas City. I also have a ginormous beard. You might have seen it. Outside of the unrelenting desire for tacos, I find pleasure in creating things. I’m a maker — branding, logos, app designs websites, UX/UI, all the way to painting, photography, and poetry.

Art has always been my passion, but it’s really hard to sell enough poems to pay rent. Thankfully, I was turned on to graphic design when I was in high school. I received my first degree (from an unaccredited school, ugh) back in 2000. Since then, I’ve been having a blast building my design knowledge chasing after mastery.
