J\V.S is hybrid studio / brand / platform for myself, Jon Way. I'm an independent, multi-disciplinary Design Director focused on progressive output across several mediums, and verticals. I've got managerial experience, but still retain an executional focus. This mentality, and subsequently the contents of this site, are the by-product of a ceaseless pursuit of creative discomfort, and a grave fear of stagnation.
Professionally, I've had ±15 years experience of creative collaborations with a wide-range of companies, agencies and individuals. This list includes brands like Apple
, and Beats
. Agencies like 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 prioritizing those long-term brand partnerships, with some availability for more focused projects such as product marketing, product design, e-comm, editorial work, and more.
After intensely focusing and investing in my own brand and platform, I have some availability to work on external projects. Please feel free to reach out
if you have something that might be a good fit for us to work on together. I'm available for partnerships, consultation, product collaborations, and am open to coming in-house to build something together if the fit is right.
Regardless, I'm always keen to connect even if the timing isn't quite right yet to keep in touch.
