IdeaWork Studios

Jay Schwartz is founder and president of Ideawork, a Santa Barbara and Las Vegas-based interactive agency with clients ranging from museums to Las Vegas casinos, nightclubs and world-renowned entertainers. A graduate in fine arts from the University of California, Santa Barbara as well as Pasadena's Art Center College of Design, Jay began his career as a fine artist in 1992 and operated his own freelance design studio from 1993 to 1999. As the list of well-known clients seeking out Jay's results-drive campaigns continued to grow, Jay founded IdeaWork in 1999, and later expanded to Las Vegas in 2002.

Known for his knack for mending art and strategic functionality in truly unique ways, Jay continues to set new standards in creative visual and interactive campaigns for his clients. In addition to crafting his art in the digital and print domains, Jay also is widely known as a street painter, mixing his own chalks and practicing his street painting craft in all over the world including Italy, Japan, Mexico and the United States. www.ideawork.com, www.jayschwartz.com
