    Lee Steffen is the former Art Director of CCM Magazine. During his tenure, the magazine received a Gold Folio award for his redesign, one of the highest achievable editorial awards. Steffen has worked nearly every prominent Christian artist and band, including: Jars of Clay, Third Day, Newsboys, TobyMac, Family Force 5, Michael W. Smith, Amy Grant, Steven Curtis Chapman, Jaci Velasquez, Jeremy Camp, Rebecca St. James, Casting Crowns and many others.

    Lee has nearly a decade of experience creating award-winning ideas and products for clients such as MTV Networks and Hatchette Book Group and some of his products can be seen in stores like Home Depot and Whole Foods. Steffen holds a degree in Industrial Design and an MBA in Advertising and Brand Management from the University of Illinois.

    Steffen is currently a freelance Creative Director and Photographer and is Founder of Penguin Creative, a design studio specializing in editorial design and brand development.

    In 2005, Steffen felt the God calling him to leave his career, sell nearly all of his belongings and travel the world to raise awareness of critical issues around the world and inspire others to be catalysts for change. For the next year and a half, Steffen and a friend embarked on a round-the-world adventure, taking them to some of the most desolate places in the world.

    The expedition allowed them to participate in projects such as building a clean water well in Guatemala, working with ministries in Bolivia and Peru, helping to restore a water buffalo farm for a ministry in India, providing computers for a classroom in Kenya. Some of the adventure highlights for Steffen included spending 2 nights on Mt. Everest Base Camp, scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef, mountain biking down the "world's most dangerous road" in Bolivia and base jumping off the tallest observation tower in the southern hemisphere in Auckland, New Zealand.

    Before the trip was over, Steffen knew it was time to return home early and surprise the woman of his dreams with a marriage proposal. They were married within 5 weeks and returned to Nashville to continue to work in the creative industry. Both Lee and his wife Traci continue to be huge advocates for social justice & equality and inspiring others to utilize their talents and giftings to maximize the kingdom.
