Specializing in helping create and reinvent brands that thrive in an ever-changing world, Jason has a passion for crafting large-scale, memorable brand experiences. Such a passion that he co-founded a brand strategy and design agency called Storeage. In the last eight years, Storeage has made a name for itself by changing the way brands interact with customers, and in turn making cash registers ring for clients like Sonos, Dockers, HP, ING, Levi’s, and Under Armour. They’ve done it by assembling the best minds and eyes in the branding game and now have offices in Amsterdam, Seattle, Beijing and Singapore.
Jason, who is American/Chinese, is a global nomad, having lived in the US, Europe, Asia and he uses those experiences that come along with having a heavily-stamped passport to cultivate a true, 3D approach to establishing meaningful brand/consumer dialogue. His blueprint begins with a strategic plan and ends with a brand experience that not only sells, but creates a long-lasting relationship with the consumer at the same time.
When he’s not “at one” with his travel pillow or collaborating with clients, Jason speaks frequently about the new media brands can use to enhance the retail experience. For more information, you should visit store-age.nl and you’ll see why he’s an ambassador for change in this space.
