The Jax Studio

Founded in 2015 by Linda Carlson, Angus Wall, and Scott Goldman, Jax is a boutique collective of editors and creatives for film and tv marketing.  The agency is located on the Rock Paper Scissors, Elastic, and A52 Santa Monica campus, in Frank Gehry’s historic model shop. Built on the belief that advertising can also be entertainment, Jax’s unique “voice” strives to surprise and excite audiences. Our incredible team works closely with Elastic and A52 to offer unparalleled capabilities for our clients.

You can’t TRY to do things, you must simply DO them.

Quality of life doesn’t start when you go home at the end of the day.

It’s not in the dreaming, it’s in the doing.

Be amazing or be surpassed.

In the end, an ad with many messages has one message. Ignore me.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.

We have nothing to fear but fearful clients.

You’re going to need a bigger boat!

Kerning is caring.

If people don’t either love or hate your work, you haven’t done all that much.

Craft is what we are expected to know; art is the unexpected use of our craft.

All important movies start in black.
