About Jason

Jason is a graphic designer, maker, idea fountain, Etsy artisan, Seahawk fan, husband and father in Bellingham, Washington. He has a lifelong love of Lego, science fiction, comic books and thrift stores (especially when you can find the first three in the fourth...). He likes to develop skills on an as-needed-per-project basis, so he’s familiar with a lot of techniques but a master of just a few. Ask him about tools, about silicone mold making, about selling on Etsy, about alt-country bands of the mid-90s, about Seahawks players of the last 25 years, even ask him about the public access puppet show he made. But what he loves more than anything is to be invited to help others solve their design problems.

I've used Apple computers continuously since 1984. I've edited movies, I've created MS Office documents of every kind. What I love to do is graphic design using my Mac and the suite of Adobe products.

I am a self-taught graphic designer and have been employed as such for 8 years. I've designed all kinds of things, including logos, business cards, catalogs, brochures, flyers, posters, web graphics and even a treasure map. I love to teach these skills to others, because all the different tools and settings in the programs can be daunting, but very rewarding as soon as you know the theories behind them and their applications.

Since September of 2014 I have been teaching Inkscape (similar to Adobe Illustrator) and a 3D modeling software called Tinkercad at my business, in downtown Bellingham. I enjoy teaching these subjects and my experience there has really boosted my teaching skills and knowledge base. Contact me and we'll talk design!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
