Because he saw the production world changing, but didn’t see many solutions for clients and agencies, Jay Howard founded Atelier in 2003. He started his career in the Chiat/Day culture of innovation and has produced work for top brands such as Apple, Intel, Hewlett-Packard, BMW, Nike, Nintendo, and Starbucks. As a producer and entrepreneur, Jay has produced simple, iconic work for Apple and its founder now in the permanent collection at MoMA. He was a Fulbright Scholar in Visual Culture, received a BA from the University of Pennsylvania, an MA from the Annenberg School for Communications at the University of Southern California and is a graduate of the Stanford Executive Program (SEP) at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
