It was only a year and a half ago that Duft Watterson opened its doors, helping brands across the U.S. standout in their ever competitive markets. Today we seem to be filling up our office space more quickly than ever and are excited about what lies ahead. Since our humble beginnings in early 2018, our Boise ad agency has grown from a few movers and shakers to a well rounded team of 17 artists, designers, writers, digital natives and account strategists.
We’re no stranger to the war for talent. Attracting employees can be difficult in today’s competitive job market, so we’re thrilled to have nabbed three rockstar new hires in the past few months. These newcomers are settling in quickly, getting up to speed and already taking on big projects for some of our largest accounts. We’d like to take a minute to recognize the new additions to the DW team.

What gets you out of bed in the morning?

Jeff – Designer
How did you get started with design?
I’ve been into drawing since I was very young and had an initial desire to become a cartoonist. After taking an art design class for high school in 2012, I began experimenting making tutorials and studying Photoshop and found a love for design. I quickly began working on personal projects and projects outside of class for friends and family.
Anything surprising people wouldn’t guess about you?
One thing people wouldn’t guess about me is that I was born in Dallas, Texas but have lived in New Zealand for thirteen years of my life.
Best part of working at DW?
The best part of working at DW is that I am surrounded by a really supportive team of experienced and talented designers who I can learn from and get constant feedback to help me further develop my own design skills.
We can’t wait to see these new team members kill it this year. Welcome Casaundra, Shauna and Jeff!
