Jeff Hopfer: Creative Group Head/Art Director

After spending two years at an art school (the kind where you get a scholarship if you can draw the pirate), Jeff realized all he’d learned was how to draw really good pirates. He decided to continue his education at a more serious ad school and wound up graduating at the top of his class from Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles in 1988. Jeff immediately went to work at TRG and has spent the past 20-some years working on everything from beer brands to churches.

His work has won numerous Pencils from The One Show and Cubes from the Art Directors Club, plus recognition from Communication Arts, Print, D&AD, and the Clios.

Jeff and his wife, Nicole, have one child, Josef – the brightest and most handsome child known to man. Ever. Seriously. When he isn’t sweating the details on ads, you’ll find Jeff scuba diving, riding his dirt bike, escaping to the mountains of Colorado and, on occasion, drawing pirates.
