My name is Jesse Cervantes and I am a graphic designer, brand strategist and owner of Recapture Media, a creative agency located in Salt Lake City. Growing up my father’s passion for art and my mother’s love for brands influenced me to turn my love of both into a viable design career. Since then, I have made it a point to help business owners feel authentic and stand out from their competition by turning their ideas into reality with design.

I work with companies to discover who they are as an organization and help tell their story through branding. I mix their story with their ideal target audience to create a connection between the brand and consumer that creates a lifelong bond. I would love to help you with your business goals.
