Who is jeremy gotwals?
I live for one purpose: to create and share beautiful things that uplift, inspire, and spark wonder in people’s hearts.
Crafting a brand’s appearance is only a tiny piece of the work I’m known for. The most valuable work I do is also in helping brands communicate, understand, and share their message with the world.
In my 11+ years of epic experience…
…I’ve worked with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, MTV Networks, Emmy-Award Winning artists, and more businesses, startups, and non-profits than I can count.
As a print and digital designer, I’ve designed everything from books, websites, maps, and app wireframes, to entire brand identities.
I was an early pioneer of social media marketing, using social media to promote brands before Social Media Marketing was even a phrase. Media is in my blood, having worked in radio, major network television, and print media.
Seven years ago, I started my first company, Holon Publishing, launching hundreds of projects with clients around the world.
As a high-energy people person and brand evangelist - I reinvent sales and brand representation by striking at the heart of what a customer or audience is trying to experience, passionately and honestly communicating the essence of a brand’s message.
As a creative director, I’ve lead creative teams on hundreds of projects for authors, startups, small businesses, and non-profits.
As a branding and marketing professional, I’ve crafted the entire look, feel, and message of brands, down to the smallest details. I’ve initiated go-to-market strategies and launched digital advertising campaigns that helped my clients save thousands of dollars and reach their target audiences.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama
In 2013, I had the honor of overseeing the social media campaign for the visit of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Louisville, KY. I lead my team at Holon Publishing in the endeavor and worked alongside the team at Morrison Marketing and Media in also managing the press and media during the event. Not to mention the fact that I also had the opportunity to give an opening performance before he went on stage!
Besides this major ten-month undertaking, I helped manage the press and major media during multiple visits of His Holiness to the Midwest. In 2007, 2010, as well as 2013, I worked intensely with the Morrison Marketing and Media team to manage press and media both during and leading up to the events.
EMMY-AWARD winning performer, Benise!
In 2018, I had the pleasure of designing the new website for Benise, leading up to his 2018 tour. This was truly a project after my own heart, as Benise is an Emmy-award winning Spanish guitarist and performer. In my 11-year trek of designing websites and also being a professional musician myself, it was a huge milestone and union of worlds for me to design for this brilliant artist.
logo design & branding architecture
I began designing logos for businesses when I was just 17-years-old, turning my high-school hobby into a profession. From there, I began working with startups, businesses, non-profits, and artists on their brands and marketing materials, and went full-time as a freelance designer around 2009. In the decade since, I went from logo designer to full-blown branding architect, giving talks on branding at the University of Cincinnati, and designing the identities for a wide range of industries.
Tech startup Juble it! aims to help creators and causes get paid. I developed and designed their entire visual identity, messaging, marketing materials, initial go-to-market strategy, and initial pitch materials for potential investors. With a tiny budget and a short amount of time, I got them ready for Startup Grind and SXSW 2018. I worked diligently not only as their branding and marketing arm, but also as their leading evangelist at conferences and events. Helping their prospects understand their core mission and vision. To boot, I lead my marketing team at Geronimo in curating a list of thousands of qualified leads of potential influencers and early-adopters. My work for Juble it! goes to show what can be done in a short amount of time and a serious amount of passion and enthusiasm.
My product designs for client marketing purposes are frequently loved by their customers. Here, Pandora Blue, a killer model and amazing instagram influencer with over 1.6M followers, can be seen sporting my shirt design for Occultus Vape juice. Just one of countless awesome product designs that I’ve had the pleasure of crafting in my career.
Seven long and crazy years ago I started Holon Publishing. I had nothing but the trust of my clients, my skills and experience, and less than $300 to spare. With a network of more than 100 independent creative and editorial professionals, we took on publishing services and managed to help authors around the world publish their books and reach audiences without breaking the bank. My body of work at Holon is volumes upon volumes of its own, which will make a nice book one day. Until then, you’ll just have to check out our work and let it speak for itself.
