Jason LaRiviere is a designer and photographer living in Vancouver.

Right now I’m the Vice President of Creative at Lendesk, where we're building better tools for mortgage industry professionals. Most of the people I work with there dress way cooler than me, and speak more languages than I do.

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. It got a little traction, but ultimately went nowhere. We thought we might do some more 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 led design for both the product and marketing teams. 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 digital agency in Victoria, which is notable for having been sued by our most famous client, Ms Pamela Anderson.

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

I take a lot of photos. There was a time when I dealt with them publicly—daily photo posts on a Tumblr blog, a self-published quarterly zine, online print sales, and more stuff like that. I deal with my photos a little more privately these days. My next 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. It turns out that I quite like it, 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.
