Jason was laughably put down many years ago when he first started out in his career he was told you are 'A Jack of all trades & Master of none" Today he laughs at this backward way of thinking, retorting often that "A Jack of all trades & Master of none?..... if you can't do more then one thing your no good to anyone!" His ethos is, get really good at everything you do & don't let others low expectations & work ethic limit your own.

That said, Jason is also a great believer in giving the job to the right expert.

"You can't do everything all of the time, I would never take on a large typesetting job with pages on pages of copy to be formatted & flown into a document. I can do it don't get me wrong, but why would you pay an artworker to do a job a typesetter would do in a third of the time because that's what they do all day long every day. It makes no business sense."

"Equally, you would never give a typesetter the task of creating a brand guideline & expect them to do a decent job on the graphical elements or have any idea of how to read & write a guideline. Would you allow your photographer to retouch your imagery?. They may think they are capable & attempt to talk you into allowing him/her to carry out the retouching, but trust me, from experience I have never come across a single photographer that can retouch to artwork standards & every time I come across a retouched image done by the photographer or his/her assistant I have to redo it from scratch......
Every time!".

"I think you have to know who is capable & who has a track record of creating the best services money can buy plus who share in your passion for creativity & excellence. That's what we do at Two Smoking Barrels, we aim to give you a service second to non.
