13 May Meet Our Newest Team Member Andy Jansma
Welcome New Team Member
Meet Andrew Jansma, our lead visual designer! He’s our newest Xoil team member, and a great addition at that.
Andy is joining us as a Kendall College graduate, where he earned his BFA in graphic design.
Andy is talented, funny, a natural design stud, enjoys fitness activities, camping, watching movies and paddle boarding in his spare time, and like most of us creative heads he requires a fresh cup of coffee in the morning to get him going. He’s a man of mystery and power, whose power is exceeded only by his mystery.
