Design & Direction
Steffen is best known for his emphasis on designing with intention. His creative direction and designs have spanned across multiple industries, including work in healthcare, entertainment, presidential campaigns, finance, luxury travel, non-profit, nanotechnology, education, sports, and architecture.
As a musical artist, Steffen has released two full-length albums and numerous singles. His debut album, Perfect Melody, was released in 2005, and includes collaborations with Matt Wertz, Matt Mangano (John Mayer) and producer Steve Wilson (The Juliana Theory, The Class of 98). CCM Magazine wrote:
"Steffen is nearly a one-man machine, masterminding most of what makes up Perfect Melody. He wrote seven of the album's 12 tracks, co-wrote two others, and plays guitar and piano throughout...Perfect Melody is an indie record that doesn't sound like an indie record.."
In 2015, Steffen produced and co-wrote "Hungry and Foolish" for MK Asante's Buck: Original Book Soundtrack.
