Gabe Ripley (aka Kung-Fu Panda)

Director of Creative Services

Shortly after earning a degree in Graphic Design from Oregon State University, Gabe began his career with women’s apparel retailer Coldwater Creek. During his near 14 year history with the company, Gabe served as Production Designer for both web and catalog teams, then as Web Graphic Designer, and finally Web UX Designer.

In the spring of 2014 Gabe joined JEBCommerce and thoroughly enjoys working with the rest of the team to service its roster of outstanding brands.
