Hi Creative Lab,
I'm Jarrard Cole. I spend my time combining storytelling and technology.
Since I was old enough to connect a camera to a computer, I've nerded out on new tech and then found ways to have fun with it. For the past decade, I've produced films, virtual reality experiences, interactive videos, graphic explainers, and podcasts for The Wall Street Journal. My work has reached tens of millions of people, garnered Emmy nominations and a Pulitzer, and shown that a 133-year-old media brand can take creative risks.
It's been a blast, and I'm ready to create beyond the bounds of journalism.
Here's what I like to do:
Make complicated subjects understandable
Use new tech to make something cool
Inject surprise into projects
Lead collaborative teams
I'd love to be a Fiver — to keep growing my skills and expanding at the Creative Lab.
