So, what the heck is a
Marsh Haus?
Marsh Haus is 100% Nicole MARSH and 30.769% Jeffery FrankenHAUSer.
We are two people adapting to the big city that our hometown became in the blink of an eye, raising another generation here, and teaching at our alma mater. So, it’s safe to say that our focus is on community! This focus is evident in our client list of small businesses and organizations making a local impact—but like we said, we’re adapting and open to new opportunities!
Nicole Marsh (She/her)
Graphic Designer, Educator, Cool Mom™
A lifelong lover of long hours spent glued to a screen, I began teaching myself Photoshop at age 12. My professional career has since meandered through multimedia disciplines, beginning with a 3-year stint directing live TV news, but I always end up back at digital graphics and design.
The confluence of this experience equipped me for two collaboration-focused careers: teaching and freelance design. True to form, I couldn’t pick one—so when I’m not doing design, I’m teaching it at Portland State University!
Marsh Haus isn’t just me, of course. My spouse, co-instructor, and design partner, Jeffery Frankenhauser hops on board for projects requiring his niche expertise, which I’ll let him tell you all about. Take it away, Jeff:

Jeffery Frankenhauser (He/him)
Designer, Illustrator, Responsible Dad™
Hi! I work hard to simplify and clarify complex information and ideas into thoughtful, approachable pieces. I’m passionate about solving problems with design, and my best work comes from designing within systems and limitations. In addition to my problem-solving skills, I am also an experienced illustrator, which allows me to take projects from conception to completion.
