Bio


I’ve been a professional comedy writer, an amateur sports designer, both an art director and a copywriter, am currently a creative director, and just recently added founder to the long list of things I’ve been called. On top of that I’ve got two wild little kids and very little free time. Wanna talk? Sure, I’ll gladly take the 15 minute break from all of this. Find me at jessealkire.com

Philosophy


I’ve parlayed my background in film, television, and comedy writing into an 11-year career as an art director, copywriter, and now creative director. In baseball terms, I’m what you’d call a utility player. In slightly more explicit terms, I’m a maker of cool shit.

My work has been seen online by millions and written about on all corners of the internet. From sports sites like Bleacher Report, Sports Illustrated, and FOX Sports; to industry publications like AdWeek, Fast Company, AgencySpy, and Muse by Clio; to design sites like Brand New, ESPN’s UniWatch, and Monotype.

Along the way I’ve had some great client partners in just about every industry imaginable. The biggest beer brands on the planet including Bud Light, Coors Light, Miller Lite, and Corona; countless brands within the J.M. Smucker and YUM! Brands families; the NBA and MiLB; and even government campaigns for the Colorado Departments of Transportation and Public Health.

Denver Ad School

Brand Identity

Seeing a need in the industry for a more modern, comprehensive portfolio-building program that was actually affordable for all students, I founded the Denver Ad School. Diversity of thought benefits creative teams more than anything, so by helping students get into the industry that weren't able to previously afford a portfolio school we can hopefully help agencies fill their creative teams with unique voices that otherwise would have gone unheard in advertising. And of course I had a blast creating some of our unique collage art pieces, along with the school’s overall brand identity – a dream project for me.
