Jay began working as a junior Art Director at Leo Burnett in the UK in 1993-94. Gaining valuable experience in working on international campaigns abroad, the desire to start his own company led him back to Vancouver.
After returning to Canada in 1994, Jay worked as a consulting Art Director for a number of companies in various industries from film, fashion, high-tech,start-up’s and government. It was during this period he met with his current partners, Ada and Nick, and formed Atomic Eye Design in 1996.
As an Art Director and an owner of a successful smaller boutique design firm, we possess the ability to define purposes and goals for our clients better than a larger agency or design firm. The message, “You are important to us,” resonates strongly with our clients.
