Say Hello to El Jefe

Jeff Rudolf: thought-provoking, poignant, hilarious, a roller coaster of emotions. Finally, a designer the whole family can enjoy! If you hire only one employee this year, make it Jeff Rudolf!”

I hope you enjoyed my résumé. My name is Jeff Rudolf, and I’m excited to be applying my skills as Associate Director of Design and Development at the C-3 Group. I graduated from the School of Advertising Art in 2003, and have been working in the advertising and design field ever since. I’ve created motion graphics, videos, animations, websites, innumerable print pieces, and much more for a vast array of clients, including Procter & Gamble, Mars Pet Care, Iams, Eukanuba, Sara Lee Foods and LexisNexis to name a few.

I love devoting my time to my wife Jessica, daughter Josie, and our two obnoxious dogs, Sophie and Farley. My friends and family are also very important to me. I’ve completed 3 Tough Mudder events, which I guess implies that I like to be electrocuted and near hypothermia. I enjoy exercising, playing with my band, sports (go Colts!), TV shows (Cheers!), movies (Indiana Jones!), music (Bowie!), the outdoors, traveling, and probably a whole lot of other stuff. I enjoy a nice IPA more often than not. I also secretly still want to be a professional wrestler, “Brother”.

I could go on, but why would I put you through that? If you made it this far, thanks for reading!

Now Introducing, Chris Jasko

cjaskoHola, mis amigos. Me llamo Christophini Jaskopini. ¿Dónde está la biblioteca? And thus ends the Spanish portion of my introductory blog because I’m pretty much tapped.

Seriously, though, I am Christopher Michael Jasko the First, the newest member of this happy band known as The C-3 Group. I look forward to bringing the “skills that pay the bills” as the team’s Account Manager and Copywriter.

This is the part of the blog where I’m supposed to give you a brief overview of my life, schooling, and experiences. Honestly, that’d probably be a bore so I’ll save you some time with a fistful of rapid-fire fun facts:

  • I’ve been happily married for nearly 10 years. I’m contractually obligated to say that my wife is the coolest person ever.
  • My house was built in 1920. It is approximately 700 square feet. Now put five kids, two adults, and a dog into that space. Privacy and quiet are only concepts I’ve heard about from my single friends.
  • I raise backyard chickens. Please don’t tell the man. The eggs are tasty.
  • Dayton is my favorite city/place in the entire world. Costa Rica is a close second.
  • I am color blind (deutan color vision, specifically). No, that doesn’t mean I cannot see any color at all.
  • I once mashed seven pieces of birthday cake into my mouth at the same time. This was not my best look.
  • The common mallard is my power animal. Quack.
  • I received my BA in Journalism from Wright State University. It’d be groovy if I could go back for my Master’s degree.
  • If I were an album, I’d probably be “Out of the Blue” by Electric Light Orchestra. Sophisticated, beautiful, and grandiose, yet great for dancin’.
  • I’m a fan of the Oxford comma. Sorry.

There you have it: a nibble of information about one Christopher Michael Jasko. I’m glad you’ve had a chance to learn a little about me, and I’d happily share more if you’d like to swing by the office for a cup of coffee or two.

Anywho, I’m truly thrilled to be at The C-3 Group. We’ve got a pretty special group of folks here. I can’t wait to be a part of all the great things we’ll accomplish. I’ve got a sneaking suspicion that it’s going to be a fun ride.

Is that enough? Sure seems like it. I just hope I hit the word count. Wait, is this thing still on? Oops.

C-3 Cares 2016: And the Recipient Is…

Way back in 2013, we began an initiative to support the charitable organizations in the Dayton region that give back so much to our community and make the Miami Valley a better place to live, work, and play. Since then, we’ve had the opportunity to work with some truly fantastic people and nonprofits that are making a real difference, and we’re excited to continue this great tradition in 2016.

It’s our pleasure to announce St. Vincent de Paul, Dayton District Council as our selection for the C-3 Cares initiative.





St. Vincent de Paul delivers vital services to homeless and impoverished individuals and families in the Greater Dayton area. The organization annually serves over 100,000 people in the region by providing emergency shelter, transitional and permanent housing, food, clothing and household items, and assistance.

The entire C-3 team is amazed by the good work St. Vincent de Paul does for the community. We look forward to supporting the organization and their mission to end poverty and homelessness.



Applications for C-3 Cares will be accepted during the fourth quarter of each year and the selected organization will be chosen and notified in January of the following year. Find out more about C-3 Cares.


Meet Graphic Designer Jon Wiley


The name’s Jon Wiley and I’m the newest member here at The C-3 Group. I am ecstatic to begin my journey as the Graphic & Web Designer.

I am a 2009 graduate of the School of Advertising Art (SAA), with 7 years of graphic design experience. I have created various print pieces for multiple Minor League Baseball Teams such as the Dayton Dragons, Frisco RoughRiders, Scranton Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, Oklahoma City Dodgers and Winston-Salem Dash. I have also created Motion Graphics for clients such as Pepsi, Kroger, The Berry Company, Ford, Chevrolet, McDonalds and many other national brands.

Outside of work, the general public labels me nerd, dork and geek. I say, “They’re absolutely correct!” From video games & table top games, to graphic novels (comic books) and movies, I love it all. Don’t believe me? Then join me at Epic Loot in Centerville on Tuesday nights at 6pm for weekly game night!

Other than that, I adore spending time with my wonderful fiancé Abigail and our Miniature Poodle, Mozzy.



It’s that time of year again!

c3cares-blog-graphicThere are thousands of nonprofit organizations and charities in the Miami Valley alone. As our way of giving back to the community, each year our team selects one of these nonprofits or charities and assists them through web design/development, branding/logo design, PR, social media and more.

In 2015 we partnered with Rebuilding Together Dayton (RTD) for graphic design, videography and marketing strategy. Rebuilding Together works to preserve affordable homeownership, revitalize communities and makes homes in the Dayton area safe. We were thrilled to support RTD this year and can’t wait to start working with the next nonprofit!

Applications are now open on our website through the end of December. If you are a nonprofit organization or charity with marketing needs, or know of one, we encourage you to apply. The chosen organization will be notified in January of 2016, so start spreading the word!
