We believe in the power of great ideas.

We are a lean design studio that sees itself as a matchmaker between innovative creators and the audiences eager to discover them.

Jake Cooper

Founder & Creative Director

I decided to build JCD in a way so that id could run sustainably solely by myself. I believe I can offer more attentive services and develop more purposeful long-term relationships with my clients by reducing dependencies and communicating directly.
I specialize in helping creators and businesses use their branding to better resonate with their audience through clear, strategic, and purposeful communication and design. When necessary, I outsource design tasks and enlist additional expertise from my professional network in order to deliver the best results.
I’ve been working in-house and externally in brand-focused graphic design and web development fields since 2012. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Forbes 100 companies like Time Warner Inc. (now Warner Discovery), HBO, and Turner ; non-profit organizations like The Smithsonian; and individual creative entrepreneurs alike.
I graduated from RISD in 2012 with a BFA in Graphic Design. I grew up in Trumbull, CT before working in New York City and eventually moving to my current home in Saratoga Springs, NY.
