Founder / Director
Jason is the founder and director of zinc Roe design. Under Jason’s direction, zinc Roe has developed a reputation as one of the top boutique web design firms in Canada with a client list that includes Teletoon, Family Channel, National Geographic Kids, Playhouse Disney Canada, TVOntario, and the Canada Council for the Arts. This reputation is built on a tight integration between design and code as well as a strong focus on user-contributed content.
Jason has a B.Sc. in Environmental Science from the University of Guelph and made the transition into new media when he began developing online media for the Vancouver Aquarium and Science World. Jason established himself as an expert Flash developer, trainer and author and has presented at international conferences including the Annecy Animation Festival, FlashForward and FlashintheCan.
Jason likes to tell people he selfishly started zinc Roe as an excuse to work with clever and talented people. Jason has lead the production of many of the studio’s showcase projects including the Zimmer Twins and terminus1525.ca.
Jason loves the Tate Modern, avocados, Repo Man, Mill Street Coffee Porter, Haruki Murakami and FIFA07.
