Jason LaRiviere is a designer and photographer living in Vancouver.


As the Vice President of Creative at Lendesk, I led design for the product and marketing teams that shipped groundbreaking, first-of-its-kind software for the Canadian mortgage industry. We had a heck of a good time doing it, too.

A few years ago, I got together with some other guy named Jason to start making iPhone apps. In March April, 2015, we released Hereby, the best way to chat anonymously with the people that surround you every day. We thought we might do some other stuff together too, but we didn't. In 2017 we shut the whole thing down, grateful for what we learned.

Before all that, I was the Creative Director at Clio, where I launched the design program for both the product and marketing teams. We shipped a celebrated overhaul of a SaaS platform with tens of thousands of monthly active users, and in 2014 our in-house team were Graphex Awards finalists for our work on Clio’s iPhone app.

In 2008 I was at a small, now defunct digital agency in Victoria. In addition to client work for brands like Sotheby's International Realty Canada, Victoria's The Butchart Gardens, and Hollywood's Pamela Anderson, I helped produce a number of in-house products, including a full-blown commercial CRM platform, a luxury real estate portal, and an online pharmacy for the American market.

In 2006 I was living and working in Winnipeg. That was, like, more than twelve years ago. Nobody cares anything about that.

I take a lot of photos. You can see some of them on my portfolio site. My next photo project is a book what tells the story of all the breakfast oatmeal I ate in 2017. Get on my newsletter and I'll be sure to let you know when it's available.

In early 2016, I began to explore life without most forms of social media. This means that I'm inactive on Facebook, Twitter, Dribbble, LinkedIn, Instagram, and all the rest. It turns out that I'm quite happy with this, and there’s just no end in sight for that little experiment.

I'm easy to reach, and I have all the time in the world. Email me, and stay in touch.
