Jill Spaeth is partner and business lead at Spaeth Hill, a firm she and Nathan Hill established in 2018. After collaborating for several years, the two joined forces to establish a forward-thinking design-build practice specializing in brand experiences, signage programs and curated moments.
Jill began her career in the architectural side of commercial real estate in the early 2000’s. By 2010 she formed her own firm, Citizen Creative, bringing comprehensive signage, wayfinding programs and large-scale interior graphic design services to the D.C. area.
In 2014, Jill was the only woman of five nominees selected to sit on the national board of the largest professional association for design, AIGA. She oversaw programs and initiatives for the organization’s 30,000 members with a specific focus on fundraising and scholarship development through the Design Continuum Fund, which has become a national program allowing AIGA’s 70+ chapters to develop their own scholarship programs locally.
Spaeth received an executive education in business at Yale University’s School of Management and has a B.F.A in graphic design from Rochester Institute of Technology. She frequently lectures at the University of Maryland and has taught graphic design history at George Mason University.
