ABOUT

Jason is a graphic designer with interactive tendancies who loves a good branding challenge. Jason has an affinity for sharp design with engaging use of color. Branding is his favorite type of design because creating a brand for a company creates an existence in the world.

Without good branding, a company identity is just a name and a logo. 

He has spent his career fine tuning his skills from design and production to scheduling and workflow management. Jason has an excellent understanding of the design and production process from the birds-eye level where big ideas count, to the ground level where attention to detail is critical. He has successfully taken on many levels of the creative process.

Jason has built a foundation of success based on his experience working in fast-paced environments where time management and consistency are king. His work involves designing everything from logos, illustrations, print advertising and web design to point of sale and packaging for Xerox, Fred Meyer, Papa Murphy’s and other professional services companies. He thrives in an environment that allows for him to showcase his disciplined design approach and time management skills.

Jason is looking for freelance or long term opportunities within a strong, creative environment where he can contribute his eye for detail and disciplined design approach.
