I’m a freelance designer / consultant specializing in creative services with an emphasis on design management. I was born and raised in Southern California and graduated from CSULB in 1996 with a Bachelor in Fine Arts.
After graduation I began working at design firms and advertising agencies as a designer and then as an art director before I pivoted into the action sports industry, spending time with Ezekiel, Billabong and Innes clothing brands.
In 2010 I founded Jay Mitchell Works based on my belief that creative solutions need to balance artistic innovation and market relevance.
I currently live in Capistrano Beach, CA. When I’m not locked in my design studio, you can find me teeing it up at my favorite links, surfing my local beach breaks or sampling some of the latest snowfall at Mammoth Mountain.
Throughout my 20 year career I have honed skills that combine design management, merchandising, product management, production and marketing experience thus allowing me to bring success and diversity to all clients.
I have established a multitude of creative skills that are applicable to any project. But no matter what the assignment entails, I have made it my passion to focus on two things; Complete and unsurpassed client satisfaction and to design with creative innovation that leaves a lasting impression.
I enjoy working with brands that are driven to make a strong impact on the marketplace. I coordinate, supervise and effectively handle any situation by negotiating, developing, and implementing creative solutions. I have a positive attitude, reliable attendance and a detail-oriented approach to managing work with the ability to perform in a fast paced, deadline-oriented environment.
