J. Jason Smith
Creative, Art & Design Director
jj (at) graphicology (dot) com
An odd mix of art director and technologist, Jason has worked at agencies both large and small and on many accounts across the country, striving to give strategic and creative insights the aesthetics and technology they need to thrive. He brings a unique mix of experience to his clients. For instance, he has owned his own creative boutique in Pittsburgh but has also worked in Dubai, United Arab Emirates as Creative Director on large multinational accounts. He enjoys the logical left-side brain stuff like technology, code, and analytics while also relishing in the uncertainty of the creative process. Some of Jason's favorite accounts that he has collaborated on include: Google, Arizona Office of Tourism, Michelin, Verizon, US Airways, Nintendo, GE, Mozilla Firefox, Burger King, Einstein Bros. Bagels, Denny's, and the San Francisco 49ers.
Some of Jason's short-term goals are to finish the typeface he started designing last year, to take the week-long Letterpress Workshop offered by the San Francisco Center for the Book, to pinstripe someone's hot rod, to find a potty-trained italian greyhound puppy, and to see the Mets win the World Series again.
Miami Ad School (Final Portfolio Prep, Everything is Media, Creative concepts), Art Institute of Phoenix (creative development and portfolio prep), Anderson University (graphic design and web design), and Furman University (advertising design, graphic design and typography.)
Graduated with a Masters Degree from the VCU AdCenter and had the privilege of learning the ropes from Jelly Helm, Coz Cotzias, Jerry torchia, and Mark Fenske.
