The online portfolio of multi-disciplinary
visual artist Jayel Draco.

I asked Jayel to animate a music video for one of my songs a couple years ago. He took my basic vision and came up with something more amazing and with more depth than I was even hoping for. His artistry, his creativity and his talent are incredible! You can tell he knows his craft. He's also very professional, open minded to input and has great attention to detail. Jayel truly is a one of a kind artist and I look forward to working with him again someday.

Never have I met such a creative visual artist that also possesses the complex technical programming capabilities in order to bring his productions vividly to life.

We consider Jayel Draco an integral part of our marketing team and highly recommend him."

John R Kazanjian

Designation : Managing Member

"When I first approached Jayel about revamping my website, I knew it needed a pretty extensive redesign to bring it into the smartphone era. Although I had the basic idea of the elements I wanted for my business needs, Jayel knocked it out of the park with his design sense and technical know-how. I also really appreciated some of the back-and-forth testing he undertook with me to make sure everything flowed from page to page as I'd hoped. He left me with a website that I'm extremely pleased to have represent my company for years to come."

His work is always top notch, his attitude is positive, and his creativity is unparalleled.  As a Cinematographer who has shot multiple films that he has provided VFX for, I am continually impressed with his visual and technical prowess. As a client that Jayel has built a website for, I am thoroughly pleased with his ability to translate my ideas into an elegant and seamless website to showcase my work. He worked with me to build exactly the site I was looking for! Regardless of the medium, Jayel Draco always performs at the highest level, and delivers flawless results!"

Jon Fordham

Designation : Director of Photography

"Jayel and I have been working together for over 10 years - he is my go-to guy for anything to do with either web design or visual effects. His web design is creative, clean and never confusing. His visual effects work for my films, music videos and commercials has been astounding. I have never presented him with an idea that he said he couldn’t do - and he always pulls it off. The best part of his visual effects work is how seamless and unobtrusive it is. To me, the key to good visual effects is when you don’t notice them, and the viewer gets the feeling of watching a great magic trick. “Wait, how’d they DO that?” That’s the feeling I get every time I watch Jayel’s work. I value Jayel’s hard work and friendship, and he is an asset to any production or project he is on."

"Jayel has designed several promotional pieces for me as well as helped me set up my Wordpress website. Throughout the process, I’ve found him highly professional, responsive, technically knowledgeable, and enormously creatively talented. He provided exactly what I wanted from a design standpoint, and helped set up my Wordpress site to make it affordable and very easy to manage. He is highly recommended."
