After a dozen years in printing, Jason Barthlow decided to see what it was like working on the advertising agency side of the business, joining Factory as our in-house guru of all things print production. Which meant a switch from fixing ad agency mistakes to preventing them. He grew up in Michigan, studying Broadcast And Cinema Arts (with a minor in Art) at Central Michigan University and has built up a prolific freelance design practice focused on musicians and music venues . . . creating posters, logos, albums and more. Outside the office, Jason is: Husband of Sarah (a freelance photographer), father of Max (a two-year old), passionate cyclist, vinyl collector and bass player in the Detroit band, The Blue Squares.
