A self-confessed creator, there is barely a moment when Brooklyn artist Jason Naylor isn’t creating something. If he isn’t designing or art directing, he’s illustrating or doodling on everything “from chairs and notebook covers to clothes and walls.” Jason’s work has been dedicated primarily to the Fashion and Beauty industries, and he has had work appear in V Magazine, Pop, Wonderland, Paper, and Vogue Paris. He has had videos on Interview.com, MatteVideo.com home pages, and has worked with fashion designers from Rodarte to the late Alexander McQueen. In 2008 the International Fashion Group also nominated him as a rising star. Jason has worked with countless beauty brands and has a knack for understanding makeup and the world of beauty. But despite his love for fashion and beauty, Jason is an artist who is able to put trends out of his mind and think on a more subconscious level when he works. This enables him to work with brands ranging from Microsoft to Puma to Xandem Technologies. He believes design is design and his work relies upon his subconscious, which he believes drives all of his work regardless of medium.
One thing that separates the great innovators from everyone else is that they seem to know a lot about a wide variety of topics. They are expert generalists. Their wide knowledge base supports their creativity.
