JJ Smith

Being somewhat of a nomad, Jason has worked in Richmond, VA; Chicago, IL; Washington DC; New York City; Pittsburgh, PA; Phoenix, AZ; San Francisco, CA; South Carolina and now in the United Emirate City of Dubai. Jason strives to bring an intellectual and inspired approach to his projects. He believes in uncovering an idea that will work for his clients and then designing the appropriate 'clothes' for that idea. He also enjoys referring to himself in the third person. Some of his client experience includes projects for Nintendo, US Airways, Pioneer Electronics, California Pizza Kitchen, Einstein Bros. Bagels, The Arizona Office of Tourism, Google, Denny's, Verizon, The Wall Street Journal, Fortunoff Jewelry, The Virginia Lottery and his first client, Loafers Bread Company. Loafers was Jason's first client when he was a partner in a small design firm / ad agency in Pittsburgh, and he is very proud to say that they are still a client. 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.
