Jett Butler, Assoc. AIA

Few designers can claim the unique relationship with architects that FÖDA’s founder Jett Butler can. FÖDA has completed over 145 assignments as a branding agent for architects, developers, and builders. In addition to that work, FÖDA has developed over 40 hospitality projects in high detail, serving those entrepreneurs in various degrees of collaboration with an architect. 

Over his 20-year career Jett has photographed work for architects, lectured in schools of architecture, used a degree in architecture to teach in schools of art and design. 

Yet, he set aside a 6-year award-winning streak in architectural delineation to focus on typography. He gave up building theaters to learn logos, and parked his degree in architecture for an unknown future in brand development. 

This afforded Jett a rare privilege: observing not the architects’ work, but the window into how they manage and market their work—not just studying architecture, but seeing how it is taught. By hearing more than how architects talk about clients; he discovered how their clients talk about them.
