PPD Company History

  • After graduating from San Diego State University in 1991 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Graphic design Jeff worked for an Advertising Agency in Stockton California. It was a very exciting time for designers, the dawn of the digital designer was on the horizon and he was working on national campaigns and projects.
  • After 3 years with that firm, Jeff started his own agency “JB Designs.” In addition to graphic design they expanded into production with in-house screen printing, vehicle graphics and started designing for that new media the “internet.” Jeff was very inspired to be involved from the very beginning and to see how it has changed our lives. Yet another evolution in graphic design.
  • In 1996 Jeff met his wife Jill, moved to Santa Cruz CA, and changed the name of the agency to Pleasure Point Design (A local surf break).
  • They then incorporated the business, received their contractors license and the named changed yet again to PPD Multimedia, inc.
