When Jordan Lacenski enters a room, you’ll know it. Her personality is magnetic, her energy palpable. Quick wit and a ready flash of smile will draw you into conversation, and before you know it, you’ll feel like you’re already “in the fold.”
Jordan is the “Boss” behind BrandBoss Creative, a brilliant strategist and motivator, and consummate entrepreneur. Her passion for building businesses through innovative branding and marketing is rooted in the desire to support her fellow entrepreneurs and find ways to change the world.
WHAT SHE DOES
Jordan’s community-minded approach to branding and marketing was recognized by the Florida Public Relations Association of Northwest Florida in 2016, when they named her Communicator of the Year Not-For-Profit. She gives back. In 2017, Jordan organized a #GivingTuesday event in which she led a startup marketing collaborative in donating 24 hours of marketing strategy work to a Montana nonprofit.
As the Director of Marketing and Communications for the Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation from 2014-’16, she positioned the Foundation and its charity partners as regional influencers, maximizing PR reach within the community they serve. Jordan previously worked as Brand Manager for Beam Global in North Carolina, and Craft Brand Specialist with Caffey Distributing, Co. She helped launch new craft beer brands in the Triad of North Carolina, and forged relationships with regionally established brands like New Belgium Brewing Co., SweetWater Brewing Co, and Great Lakes Brewing Co. Jordan hold a Masters of Business Administration degree with a concentration in Marketing.
WHY SHE DOES IT
Jordan’s motivations come from her desire to dive headfirst into challenging projects. She loves the constant process of discovery and rediscovery – the common thread in every evolving brand. Fueled by morning coffee and a kickass playlist, Jordan’s energy and vision is contagious. She describes her relationship to digital marketing in terms of feeling and connection. “I love branding because of the potential it has to reach people. If done right, your brand can connect with the human heart, tell a story, humanize your business.”
WORKING WITH JORDAN
A collaboration with Jordan Lacenski’s strategic marketing firm, BrandBoss Creative, gives business owners, entrepreneurs, and nonprofit organizers a secret weapon in their approach to connecting with clients. This is never a sit-back-and-enjoy-the-ride kind of partnership – Jordan expects her clients to take an active role in the process. She guides people through the steps of branding as it relates to their business journey – but there’s no fluffy, nebulous marketing jargon here. Her clients end up with a brand guideline kit in hand – elevator pitch, design guide, and marketing language all wrapped into one easy-to-understand document.
Meet Frank + Greg (pictured left to right). They are the Ying to Jordan's Yang. They are creative and technical, providing over 13 years of print and web experience providing graphic design services. There is no project that leaves them stumped. They take on billboards to apparel, to 3D promotional materials, to web, social, and animated artwork. They bring functional, emotive design to your story.
WHAT they do
Greg and Frank visually inspire people through meaningful design and create content that is memorable, thought provoking and motivating. Their purpose is to make clients look their absolute best and present others in a light that represents their business, their goals and future vision. They can take any project from inception to completion, while gathering the correct information they need to get the best results and meet the project deadline and budget.
Their past roles have been as lead designers and art directors with a touch of marketing and social media mixed in between. Having each been involved in the design sector for over 15 years, having a finger on the pulse of design and creativity has allowed them to make a difference locally and internationally.
WHY they do IT
"My philosophy in any project is to inspire people into a reaction. Whether it be through the use of color or imagery, I want an emotional response to happen. I’ve always been a technophile and I’ve always loved art. Being able to marry technology and art is a passion of mine.
I started teaching myself graphic design before I even knew the field existed. I created my first website when I was in the fifth grade! I’ve also developed a keen eye for design and layout. Hobbies include video games, computer building, drawing and digital painting." - Greg
"My take on design is more “design follows function”. I like to think of myself as more ‘designer’ than ‘artist’ because even though my brain cranks out some ‘artsy’ visuals, at the end of the project, it will always have its roots planted deep in functional reasons as to ‘why’ it turned out as such.
Originally from Hudson, Michigan (GO BLUE!), I’m a proud Air Force veteran and family man with a wonderful wife and 3 amazing kids! I love drawing, design, drums and cars! I am a Christ follower -Him accepting me with my faults- baffles me daily." - Frank
WORKING WITH Frank + Greg
Walking in the door with coffee and tunes is always first order of business. After that it’s smiles and gametime. Their goal is to demystify the creative process and get to know the client in a casual environment, setting them at ease and bringing the meeting down to a level where you walk away feeling like you’ve just sat down with some friends you’ve not seen in a while, but in the end, knowing your ROI is about to go up.
