Who is This Jake Anyway?

Aside from our jaunty name, we are known for our innovative, integrated approach to digital marketing. We are a group of strategists, artists and engineers working together to deliver creative solutions that build business.

Visit Our Studio

Our studio is located at 3214 O Street, NW, just blocks from Georgetown University. Like our design aesthetic, we prefer modern interiors -– clean, bright and functional. Large whiteboards for brainstorming, a dedicated conference area for client meetings and a private backyard garden ensure that our team has enough creative space to come up with inspired ideas.
