Hi, I'm Jason.
I'm a designer, videographer and photographer working in Southeast Michigan. I have a passion for marketing and storytelling, and enjoy combining these for the teams and projects I am a part of. Whether the work I create is still, interactive, or in motion, I bring effective communication and creative, consistent branding to your project.
Some current clients I am working with include Downtown Detroit Partnership who manages the parks in Downtown Detroit as well improves the general perception of the city. I also work with American Heart Association to tell survivor stories and market events. I'm also currently working with or have recently worked with Eastern Market Corporation, Build Institute, Oakland University, Brine Lacrosse, Warrior Sports, Invest Detroit , Michigan Good Food Charter, Michigan State University's Center for Regional Food Systems, Verde Media, Automation Alley, DTE Energy, Ford Motor Company through GTB, WeWork through Identity PR, Detroit IT, Engineers Without Borders-Detroit, Michigan Travels, SANLUIS Rassini, National Arab American Medical Association, and more.
Before deciding to work independently and start JMW Creative, I worked in Oakland University's Communications and Marketing department as their Digital Strategy Manager. I worked with the digital marketing, publications, and social media teams to create general OU branding, as well as more specific web and video projects to promote the university's departments and academic programs. I've also worked on the marketing team for Grid4 Communications, a telecommunications company, where I helped to re-brand the company, and also for The Detroit News' design team.
I graduated from Oakland University in Rochester, MI with my B.A. in Studio Art and minor in Graphic Design. As a student, I worked as the Design Editor for OU's student newspaper where I was awarded "Student Designer of the Year" from the Society for News Design. I'm currently an instructor in Oakland University's Center for Autism where I teach video, photography and design classes to students.
