Creative Director / CEO
Jake Lee-High is an artist, creative technologist, and CEO of Future Colossal, an award winning innovation lab for experiential technologies in art and advertising. Prior to receiving his Master’s in Art and Technology from Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Jake ran an architectural consulting firm that designed retail and residential buildings throughout the western US. During this time, he actively showed installation and sound art works at galleries and museums throughout the country. His art has been featured in publications such as the Los Angeles Times, the Boston Globe, Artillery Magazine, and Art in America. Jake’s work creating massively multi-channel sound works lead him to learn electronics and programming to overcome the limitations of traditional sound systems. In 2009, Jake closed his architectural consulting firm and moved to NYC to focus solely on commercializing his passion for creative technology and to develop new avenues for distributing his artwork outside of the traditional gallery/museum scene.
In 2012, after spending several years as the award winning Creative & Technical Director of out-of-home advertising agency Inwindow Outdoor, Jake founded Future Colossal. His vision continues to shape Future Colossal’s trajectory through the innovation of new technologies and experiences for commercial and artistic works. His work for clients such as BMW, Showtime, Jay Z, Disney, and Citi Bank have been featured in major publications including the Washington Post, Fast Company, Creativity, PSFK, and MediaPost. Future Colossal’s projects have received prestigious awards from Cannes Lions, Clio, Andy, Adweek Project Isaac, the One Show, the Art Directors Club and more.
