JAM Graphics

What's in a name?

In 2006, JAM Graphics was just an idea, a joint venture by John Tedesco and his sister Mary to do graphic design and art work on a freelance basis. John and Mary grew up tinkering with Photoshop and Illustrator on the family Mac, and both had serious design experience.

In 2008, JAM Graphics (short for John And Mary) became an official company. Working from his home office, John began to develop what is now an inbound marketing company delivering not just graphic design but also web development, marketing, video production, and more.
