    Interview with Jeff Finley of Go MediaPreview
    Jeff Finley is a talented illustrator/designer based in Cleveland, Ohio. He is a co-owner of Go Media, a highly respected creative agency. Jeff has worked extensively with a wide variety of clients in the music industry, apparel, as well as others, and he's working hard to branch out into doing design work for the film industry.

He feels every tool should be used as it best fits a project. He's a pro at working with Illustrator, Photoshop, and other programs. He works in a range of funky styles, while still having a strong grasp of each client's goals and brand. Learn all about Jeff and his work at the jump!Read More…
