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 was previously located in the heart of Georgetown, just off the historic C&O Canal. Since being acquired by WHITE64, we have relocated to Tysons Corner, VA. 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 state-of-the-art video production studio ensure that our team has enough creative space to come up with inspired ideas.
