Welcome to the creative studio for award winning director, designer, motion graphics and visual effects artist Jan Tompkins-Jackson.
Content studios and agencies utilize Jan’s technical and strategic creative expertise for A-List clients and brands such as Samsung, Google and Nike. She’s managed brand packaging, animation and post production for broadcast, film, web, out of home, social, museum, UX/UI and AR/VR. She’s comfortable leading teams from concept to completion. Experience working with both small and large companies gives her an arsenal of skills to direct screen content – from previs, new business and prototyping to polishing and finishing on-air campaigns and international experience ready launches. Her motion design roots trace back to years spent working in television and film for clients such as NBC and DIRECTV. She has also worked extensively in emerging and new technologies, often for multi-screen and immersive spaces.
A military brat who looks forward to exploring new places and ideas, Jan has a passion for cultural intersections, giving her a unique ability to relate to many types of experiences. Her work spills over into event production and strategy, thanks to her work as a dj and co-founding a women’s creative collective with a focus on empowerment. Jan co-founded the non-profit United Divas, with a mission to empower women to be artistic leaders, innovators and role models. The non-profit operated for a decade. Major achievements include awarding income & merit based arts college scholarships, spotlighting over 44 women artists and hosting multimedia events, exhibitions and workshops in LA, Miami Beach and the New York City area.
Jan’s past two artistic exhibits have been in major museums. In 2018, Jan art directed the live-action and post production for two 4K videos for the Bob Greenberg 10 Principles Exhibit at the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Museum in New York City. Her artwork has also been exhibited in Los Angeles, Chicago, Burbank, Seattle, Jersey City, Frankfurt, London, Montreal, Seoul, Tokyo & Osaka & the Pori Art Museum in Finland. In 2014, hip hop photographer Chi Modu included one of their Tupac collaborations in his solo “Uncategorized” exhibit in Finland.
