CC Jacob, Art Director · Food Fight
Born in Frankfurt, Germany, CC Jacob grew up "all over," the child of a military family that relocated every three or four years. She moved to the city that would become her permanent home in 1996 to study art at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and continued on to earn a second degree in graphic design from MATC (now Madison College). When CC joined the Food Fight design team in 2007, she was already a fan of the company's innovative approach to branding. "I loved the look of the marketing materials for all of the restaurants and made it a goal to join the organization I found so inspiring." After holding positions as intern, designer and senior designer, she was promoted to Art Director, and has since expanded the creative and marketing function to include social media and web development to meet the increasing needs of the business. "In the time that I have been with Food Fight it has been gratifying to watch it go from a set of nine restaurants that shared the same office, to a family of restaurants that all are working together and pulling for one another to succeed." Beyond enjoying the creative challenge that comes from leading the growing restaurant group's in-house branding team, CC stays with Food Fight because of its positive culture. "It's amazing to work for a company that values employees as more than just workers. Food Fight cares about us as people. They care about our families, our lives, our successes and our hardships. Also, It says a lot about a workplace when you consider the people you work with your friends."
