J\V.S is a hybrid studio / brand / platform for myself, Jon Way. I'm an independent, multi-disciplinary Creative Director + Designer focused on progressive output across several mediums, and verticals. In my time as a full-time and freelance resource, I've managed several creative teams, and have retained an executional interest in creating work that is both highly-crafted, and practical in addressing business needs at scale.
Professionally, I have over 15 years experience with a wide-range of companies, agencies and individuals. This list includes brands like Apple
, and Beats
. Agencies like Resn, CTHDRL
, Jam3, and Rare Volume
. Individuals like Aristide Benoist
and Ash Thorp
. And more recently, I've been exploring various brand partnership models with Tavarua
At the moment I'm available for freelance opportunities, but am prioritizing full-time opportunities where I can help build something meaningful. Freelance is fun, but I feel the time has come to settle into something where I can use my experience managing teams and executing across creative fields to create with more continuity and momentum.
Regardless, I'm always keen to connect even if the timing isn't quite right, and keep in touch.
