Nice to meet you!
My name is Jill Knobeloch (said: k-NO-buh-lock), and I’m the face behind GrapeSeed Designs.
Having grown up in Colorado at the foot of Pike’s Peak, I have a deep-rooted love for all things nature and the outdoors. Very young in life, I found a passion for trying to capture and replicate that beauty in a tangible way, beginning with photography and growing to print and editorial design.
After high school, I chased art and ice hockey across the country to Rochester Institute of Technology. There I studied graphic design, foreign languages (German and Russian minors), and laid the groundwork for a referee career that grew all the way to the international stage.
Following a few years in southern CA, I have settled into Chicago and couldn’t be more inspired by the entrepreneurial community here! I enjoy working with a variety of businesses in a range of industries.
Through it all, I have always found my heart-home at the barn working with horses — whether developing my own skills, volunteering at therapy centers, or collaborating with businesses to help them reach their potential.
It is a dream come true to blend a wide range of passions and get a front-row seat helping businesses grow.
