About

JASE Group is a creative, communications and technology studio based in Norfolk, VA, founded in 1997. We’re not much into labels because it’s too hard to fit us into one box and it’s kind of boring to explain everything we do. Alas, we know that the world is built on labels, so we gave it our best shot and we feel that creative, communications, and technology accurately encompass our entire service matrix.

Design

Creative for most people is an adjective. According to Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary, creative is defined as, “having or showing an ability to make new things or think of new ideas.” For JASE, creative is a way of life. It is our philosophy. We strive to bring new and fresh ideas to our clients in all facets of the creative space. We want your first impression on the public to be your best impression. Whether it is a direct mailer, business card, television commercial or pay-per-click ad, JASE knows that representing your business’ brand with a unique and carefully constructed strategy will help your business stand out from the competition and help your business generate leads.

Communications

Communication channels in the 21st century business world are borderless. The methods and mediums that facilitate our daily communications are ever changing. Gone is the day of just a note, phone call or memo. Today’s communication is filled with emails, tweets, texts, posts, video chats and more. Figuring out which is the best way to communicate with your audience has become no easy task. Enter JASE. We understand that being the best communicator does not mean doing what is easiest to reach the largest audience. We understand there is no cookie cutter formula to communicate with people. We know that effective communication is a time-crafted response to the technology at hand and the end consumer who interacts with your communication. We know this so that we can help you.

Technology

JASE does technology. JASE does technology well. After all, technology is where we began this journey. In the late 90’s and early 00’s we were designing websites, building content management systems, complex eCommerce applications, financial toolsets and intranets. Life was good. Then, we had an epiphany. We could see the unavoidable collision of the internet and marketing and we knew that if JASE were to have a sustainable business model well into the future, we would have to capitalize on the inevitable. What we didn’t know was that our foray into marketing would make us a better technology company. While we were experiencing the world of advertising and public relations, we were refining what we knew best, technology. That long refinement process allows us, today, to create the best custom solution for your business.

One Strategy

While we look to develop creative advertising and communications campaigns that capture your target audience, we also know that measurability is key. So before we develop your creative concepts, we do the research to correctly identify your target audience–not only who they are, but how we can best reach them. Businesses today cannot afford to waste money with ineffective advertising; so all of our creative is designed with the ability to measure the success of the ad concept. This allows us to adjust, in almost real-time, our advertising strategy so that your business maximizes the return on your investment. The luxury of having an in-house software team affords us with many options to support this strategy. Many skillsets working as one, on your team!

Google Begins To Break Away From Google+
July 28, 2015  /  By JASE Creative in Social Community

It was a thought. And for a while, it seemed like a very real possibility. Google rolled out Google+ and began to change the way we interfaced with the internet. Backed by Google Search, most experts thought that Google+ would challenge Facebook in a way that few had. But alas, it was not meant to be.

After years of attempting to work Google+ into your day-to-day, Google has announced they are breaking away from Google+, which certainly seals the social community’s fate. How long Google+ will continue to exist is anyone’s guess.

What are your thoughts? Leave a comment on our Facebook page or tweet us @jasegroup.

Instagram Poised To Move To 1080p Resolution
July 6, 2015  /  By JASE Creative in Social Community, Technology

Instagram lives in a 640px world, but apparently, not for long. TechCrunch is reporting that since the latest update to Instagram’s website, they have been allowing for 1080px uploads and though they are not displaying them on phones currently, it may only be a matter of time. The suspected reason is due to larger phones like the iPhone 6+ having to stretch Instagram images in order to display them.

Have you noticed a difference on your phone?
