Jeffrey Isham

As a Creative Technologist, I enjoy the challenge of working with technology in the context of advertising. My job description has a lot of bullet points on it, but let’s just say I get shit done. Currently I live in Minneapolis and lead the Front-end, Acquia Drupal, and QA teams at Horizontal Digital.

I’d best describe myself as a platform agnostic, front-end specialist who isn’t too shabby on the back end. I am an experienced problem solver, focused on strategy and user experience. I’m an expert with CSS and JavaScript, specializing in standards-based, accessible, client-side interactions. I’ve led teams and executed numerous digital assignments for a wide variety of brands, including Target, General Mills, Bauer, wet n wild, Kidrobot, United Health Group, the Belize Tourism Board, Pantone, New York Life, and Blue Cross Blue Shield.

My name is Jeffrey and I enjoy biking, cats, and long walks on the beach.

After a year with Horizontal, the powers that be have seen fit to promote me! I am now “Practice Lead, Open and Emerging Technologies.” Kind of a mouthful. Looking forward to building a new line of business and a team to support it.


I got my first job as a web designer in 2005. Since then I’ve been a web developer, a front-end developer, a senior developer, a tech lead, a dev manager, a creative technologist, and these days, a practice lead. I’ve been fortunate to have worked on some really great brands with some really fantastic people over the course of my career in digital marketing. Here’s a few of my favorite projects and professional highlights from the past dozen or so years.
