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.

Kerning is caring.

Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.

Simplify Simplify Simplify.

We’re not looking for a Rock Star. We’re looking for a Rock Band.

The client may be the judge, but the consumer is the jury and executioner.

Successful collaboration does not require a single committee.

Invention requires a long-term willingness to be misunderstood.
