Jolby - About the Studio

OUR STUDIO

Jolby is a creative studio that makes for the better. We do this through design, illustration, and thoughtful creative solutions.

Our Process

Our studio looks for the potential in every idea, every project, and every person. We look at the world with wide eyes; soaking up not justwhat is, but what could be. We sift through the mundane, the average, the lackluster, and we find the gold. We nurture, incubate, and feed our ideas until something magical happens. We see restrictions as challenges and roadblocks as jumping-off points. We say “yes and…” and we always Ride the Weird™.

We nurture, incubate, and feed our ideas until something magical happens.

Jolby acknowledges that their studio occupies the traditional lands of the Multnomah, Chinook, Kathlamet, Clackamas, Tualatin Kalapuya, Molalla, and other Indigenous peoples.

For the Better

We want to create change with our work no matter how big or small.

For the better of our people. To find clients and work that excites the studio and matches our studio’s values.

For the better of our community. To bring folx together under a banner of a hopeful and inclusive future, to donate our time and efforts, and to speak out in times of struggle and change in order to help lift up our community.

For the better of our planet. To work with companies that are making products in a thoughtful and sustainable way for the planet.

At Jolby, there is no expectation of perfection and ego doesn’t get a seat at the table.

“Here’s what working with Jolby is like:
Me: I have a crazy idea but I don’t know it comes to life – can you help?
Jolby: sure – how about this, or this… and also this…
Me: um….holy crap! yes please – all that!”
