Steven Otis

“The best part of working at ESSE is everything I have learned about 20th-century American women. Their struggles, triumphs, perseverance and strength was phenomenal. The style evolution through the decades is pretty incredible as well.”

After graduating from the Art Institute of Seattle in 1998 with an associate degree in visual communications with a focus on illustration, Steven Otis missed the South and came home. He worked in advertising and for various magazines before going to work for himself as a freelancer. He's worked with Anita Davis for almost a decade on a variety of projects, which he enjoys for the “creativity and opportunity to be a part of her vision for the South Main Street revitalization.”
