Jake Van Buskirk
Jake is the CCO and Co-Founder of Parachute Coffee (an e-commerce DTC brand) and is a creative gun for hire.
As a creative director and entrepreneur himself, he brings his signature blend of conceptual thought, fresh strategy and professional design to align brands with their business objectives. He is more of an eccentric-Pixar-creative-leader than an intimidating-stoic-designer-boss.
Jake is a strategist, designer, art director and filmmaker.
After recieving his BFA in film production, Jake launched his coffee start-up and simultaneously began his advertising career as an Art Director at Leo Burnett Toronto. There he developed his formula for inspiring design, research-driven problem solving, and award-winning big-brand experience.
Whether directing a large team, or one man army he's your Jake-of-all-trades.
