We make it hype and you want to step with this.

Jacqueline worked at Gresham, Smith, and Partners for 8 years in the Healthcare, Corporate, and Aviation sectors. Left Gresham in 2014 and immediately launched JDID.

We are focused on happy employees who feel motivated and inspired to create beautiful things. JDID provides abundance so our employees feel inspired to come with their best.

JDID lives for the storytelling. Design can be a vain profession. We feel purpose helping people elevate their dreams into something they couldn’t have ever imagined on their own. We tell the story of their lives and business goals through their built environment. We work 100% by referral, so our #1 goal is to make sure your experience is top-notch.

We believe there is a very high correlation between the way your employees feel about the company and the way our customers do. Our happiness shows!

JDID is different than other design firms in the sense that everyone on the team has strengths and experience and we all work together utilizing our best skillsets on every project.

We’re on a mission to elevate Tampa Bay’s design community — and we’re just getting started.
