About this Playmaker

New Haircut opened for business in 2010 as a product development studio.

After years of launching solutions that nobody wanted or needed, in 2015 we rebuilt our approach around design thinking. We spent the next several years embedding design thinking in the way we operated, grew our team, collaborated, and conceptualized new products & services.

After transforming our own methods & mindsets, we now consult and train other teams who are excited to achieve real, measurable innovation.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jay on a number of different projects across two companies. I always rely on him when I need strong design facilitation, or to help upskill my team in their ability to facilitate design thinking on their own. He is outstanding in both aspects, providing great tips, tricks and reusable toolsets. I look forward to the next opportunity I have to bring him in to help solve a problem.
