JASON HARDY

Jason combines traditional design expertise with a mastery of digital. He is as comfortable concepting and designing expressive, emotive brand and print pieces as he is solving complex digital problems. He has worked with some of the world’s most innovative companies — Tesla, Google, SpaceX and Apple to name a few — and has designed materials for some of the most iconic films ever made through his long-standing relationship with The Criterion Collection. A craft-oriented, hands-on designer, Jason is just as at home leading large teams and managing long-term, sophisticated digital initiatives. He is a clear communicator, presenter and an experienced collaborator.

Jason creates work that has emotional resonance, where people connect, are inspired and informed. He is passionate about using technological innovations to enrich people's lives and is currently looking for opportunities to contribute to the cultural landscape, celebrate and protect the natural world and to make technology more human.
