Portrait of Jason Clark

Role

Since founding Yellowfields, Jason continues to develop the cartographic, graphic and illustrative offer of the practice and takes the lead in design work. He services clients in a wide range of sectors, including architecture, planning, transport, heritage, conservation, tourism, publishing and wayfinding.

Originally, Jason started his career in cartography by gaining a HND in Land Use (Geographical Techniques) at Luton College of Higher Education, one of only a handful of institutes in the UK offering an education in cartography at the time. He added to this with an MA in Design Studies from Central St Martins College of Art and Design. Jason keeps up-to-date through self-directed study, research and his art practice.

Background

Jason is a designer with extensive experience across numerous fields, though primarily servicing the needs of those in transport planning, town planning, urban regeneration and the natural environment. Before founding Yellowfields, Jason worked in both the public and private sectors as a cartographer and graphic designer.

Whilst serving in local government, Jason created the UK’s first Local Plan Proposals Map that was based upon digital vector data and a custom-designed digital workflow — over 25 years ago. Throughout his career, projects have ranged from tiling murals for a public car park through to the design and production of large technical documents used as guidance for brand/identity application or public consultation — and everything else in-between.
