Jason Walley is a Cincinnati-based graphic designer, photographer, and artist. If you’ve ever walked into a grocery store, you might have already seen his work; with clients such as Procter & Gamble, Kraft Foods, and PetSmart, his packaging designs appear on grocery shelves around the world. His photography has appeared in Chicago Magazine and on FastCompany.com, and his motor-sport inspired graphic art has been featured on international blogs and magazines.
I enjoy talking about anything, eating freshly baked cookies, and escaping into the hills on my bicycle. I believe in the power of design thinking to drive businesses forward with strategic and meaningful innovations—both big and small. Seeing the measurable impact my work has on small businesses and start-ups motivates and inspires me while confronting the strategic challenges big companies pose excites me and stokes my passion for the design process.
