My name is Jesse Cervantes

My name is Jesse Cervantes and I am a graphic designer, brand strategist and owner of Recapture Media, a branding agency in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Growing up my father’s passion for art and my mother’s enthusiasm for brands influenced me to turn my love of both into a 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.

During my career, I have had the privilege to work with a variety of business owners in multiple industries from skincare and home restoration business to coffee shops and the fishing industry. I would love to help you with your business goals. To see our past branding successes follow this link. www.jessercervantes.com/branding
