Hayley Partridge - Partner, Lead Designer
After moving from England in 1998, her love affair with graphic design began in a Photoshop class in a New Jersey high school. Hooked, she graduated from college with a BA in Visual Communications and a focus on graphic design, with experience ranging throughout all aspects of Graphic Design, web design, marketing and branding, digital signage and animation.
She relocated to the West Coast, in her words ‘One of the most inspiring, funky, crazy, artsy cities in the States – San Francisco,’ where she began in the wine industry at Crushpad. Four years and more than 2,000 labels later it was time to spread her wings and with 4parts design expand to the rest of North American wine industry.
What makes her tick? As Hayley puts it, ‘There is nothing I love more then finding inspiration on every block. I'm lucky enough to be in a city where I'm surrounded by artistic experiences, whether it’s a restaurant menu or bar bathroom graffiti.'
Geoff Meyer - Designer
A playboy of the arts, Geoff has always had a love affair with graphic and web design but when his affair turned into a love triangle with painting Geoff sought help at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. 4 years later and no where near cured, he emerged as a match maker to the brands connecting, creating and designing. Having set up many sporting, beverage and entertainment brands on blind dates with super sweet and interesting designs, Geoff is now committed to 4 Parts Design living a happy and fulfilled life. Before you know it, little logos will be on the way.
Jen Hayes - Partner, Project Manager
Jen was finishing her BA in Linguistics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison when the urge to flee the fly-overs hit hard. Armed with her degree, a week’s hotel reservation and all her worldly possessions following behind in a U-Haul, Jen quickly settled in to the Bay Area and fell in love with the wine industry upon finding a job with Crushpad. She spent the next several years here and at other small companies gaining experience in business and accounting, as well as performing with and helping manage Bell Appeal, a San Francisco handbell ensemble.
At 4parts design Jen serves the vital roles of Project Manager and Bookkeeper, and the less vital role of office know-it-all.
