This episode of Canadian Creatives features Jay Wall, the Creative Director of STUDIO JAYWALL.
Jay Wall spans the networks of design, contemporary art, social entrepreneurship, street art, social justice, civic engagement, youth leadership and cycling. He is the founder of STUDIO JAYWALL, specializing in creative direction and design for social, cultural, environmental, and political initiatives – from print design to interactive design to public art.
Jay grew up in the rugged woods of northern Ontario, learning to be adventurous and imaginative. At the age of 7, Jay began drawing maps of imaginary countries and conceiving logos for their fictional sports teams. From there, he never turned back. This love for visual creativity led him to pursue Design at York University and Sheridan College, and in 2006 he founded STUDIO JAYWALL. Since then, Jay and his growing team have partnered with clients such as York University, Spacing magazine, Jane’s Walk, Live Green Toronto, Our Horizon, Trinity Square Video, and the Toronto Design Offsite Festival. His work has been featured in Adbusters magazine. Jay also acts in a consulting role as Chief of Design to start-up Wondereur – which has earned a Webby Award and a Canadian Online Publishing Award.
