About J-2 ▼

J-2 Creative is the design side of J-2 Consulting, Inc. We specialize in retail design, including displays, vendor shops, and environments. Other focuses include product design, graphic design, tradeshow exhibits, and illustration.

At J-2 we provide you with presentation ready material at every step of the design process.  We can provide high quality sketches to explore all the options at the beginning stages of the process. We can also take your ideas and refine them into finished colored drawings or computer renderings. We can take a project all the way from sketch to production or step in at any stage of the design process.
