An idea-first design studio.
Mister Jones is an idea-first design studio that shapes brands to solve problems, gain clarity and value, and make a meaningful, lasting difference. We partner with aspiring organizations across industries, drawing creativity from strategy to design engaging brand experiences.
Break it down? Brand identity, digital, print, packaging, campaigns, messaging, environments — basically every way a brand connects with people — all with simplicity, clarity and, when we're really humming, beauty.
Branding is our native tongue and a language your customers speak. Every client and every project is unique, but a process that begins in research and ends in meticulous execution ensures a commonality: distinctive, compelling brands that make a meaningful, lasting difference.

Independent and interdependent, Mister Jones is the studio of Jay Jones (no surprise) and clients work directly with Jay. Running point, leading creative, overseeing all projects through completion, Mister Jones also cultivates a network of collaborative partnerships (producers, developers, photographers, filmmakers, agencies, marketers and artists) to scale up and around to custom fit a project. Without clients, of course, none of that matters. So engaged, honest client relationships are first and last (and middle) in every collaboration.
An always-on thinker, Jay consistently shoots the gap between rational and creative. A trained designer and untrained writer, he has over a decade of experience in branding and design, art direction and copywriting, bringing experience and insight from all business sectors and a broad range of industries. He holds multiple design degrees (not literally; they're in a box somewhere). Jay has an amazing wife and really cool son.
"Jay Jones has provided support to our team at the highest level. From art direction, brand development, copywriting and navigating the blurriness that exists at the intersection of all three, Jay has constantly been a consummate professional every time. Exceptional work, an excellent communicator and a critical thinker & problem solver."
– Gordie Cochran, Colours & Shapes, Creative Director
"Jay Jones is not only a rare creative, possessed by extraordinary imagination and compassion; he is also a consummate professional. Working with Jay was effortless, and the results were beyond anything we could have hoped for. Our rebrand didn't just help launch a beautiful and meaningful visual identity for our organization. Jay's careful process also ensured that our whole team and many of our stakeholders felt ownership in the process. It was a gift to the culture and strength of our organization. I have worked with other organizations through similar processes and Jay provided many multiples in value compared to other experiences."
– Greg Khalil, Telos, President
