About Jason Byer:  Jason Byer is the Head of Marketing and Partnerships for Crowdspring, a Chicago-based branding firm that helps businesses, agencies, and nonprofits of all sizes start, run, and grow their business through design and a denomination of quality. Crowdspring dramatically simplifies the design process by handling the complexity so that you can focus on getting great results. Crowdspring started to address a fundamental problem with the design process, most clients had little choice, and most designers had few opportunities to find clients.

He’s equally comfortable reading The Game of Thrones and Dostoyevsky while training for triathlons and endurance races and brewing beer. He authored Get The Job: How to use personal branding to jump-start a career and dominate the competition.About Crowdspring: Crowdspring is the world’s leading marketplace for buyers and sellers of crowdsourced creative services, including logo design, web design, graphic design, product design and even naming companies and products.
