A Little Bit About Jay
Having caught the travel bug in his early 20's, Jay travelled around the world to some very exotic locations, taking on glamorous temporary jobs along the way such as Cashew nut packing and Banana tree surgery.
When Jay came back to the UK, he got his big break in the production department of a design agency, Pres Co. After quite a few incarnations and mergers, Pres Co became LBi, now one of the world's leading digital marketing agencies. Jay has been working in the digital industry ever since then, both agency and client side. He first met the founders of Ayima when working in-house at PartyGaming PLC, where Jay headed up the design team. Jay later left the online gaming company to join the design team at IG Group, a spread betting company. Tired of "working for the man", Jay founded DesignBuzz in 2008 with the help of Ayima. DesignBuzz developed its own portfolio of top Blue Chip clients, later being acquired by the Ayima Group in 2012.
As well as having an active role in DesignBuzz still, Jay has joined the Ayima Labs team - building cutting edge user interfaces for Ayima's web apps. Over the past few years, Jay has progressed towards a UX role and was a key member of the team that produced Ayima's new collaboration tool, Appotate.
