Graphic Design Team

Jeff Maqui Associate Director of Graphic Designer for OneReasonRecordings Jeff Maqui is a freshman attending The University of Texas at Austin. He is currently majoring in Finance and plans to double major in Mathematics. He has two passions in life: sports and music. He could talk for hours on end about either subject, but when he's not bitter about LeBron leaving the Heat or listening to the newest Logic album, you can likely find him at his computer looking at different forms of typography or musing about humanity's (and his own) place in the universe.
