Blend: The Blend is Near

2017

Working with Oddfellows, I art directed this title sequence for the 2017 Blend Fest conference.

Ultimately serving as a teaser to get people excited about the show, the goal was to weave the panelist and guest names into an engaging storyline.

With 13+ years as a commercial artist, Jay's style is at once whimsical and mischievous. Crafting a visual language from simplified form and light, he melds graphic sensibility with dynamic personality.

In 2016, he helped to establish the Portland arm of Oddfellows. Most recently, he's worked as a background artist on Hulu’s Solar Opposites and Netflix’s Captain Fall.
