Our History

A creative start.

'Jacob Cane' was originally used as a pseudonym for artwork created by our founder more than 25 years ago. Seeing some success as an artist, the name continued to be used and was first registered as a business name in 1995 as Jacob Cane Design.

Starting off as a freelance graphic artist and web developer, the challenges of self-employment were quickly learned through the course of business. As many other self-employed persons often realize, to be successful it was necessary to create a business structure and strategy that was more than billable hours spent on a project.

To be successful the freelance model had to give way to the consulting and service model needed to build lasting relationships with our clients and truly service them as a whole, thus the firm was developed and named Jacob Cane & Co.

Using this model, the client is put at the center and we look at the business as a whole and how we can make it successful or run more efficient, not just work on the piece we were freelanced to complete.

Our passion, obsession even, is to make business owners realize their dreams. It's part of the American dream, set out to create and build something from nothing!

The vision to make dreams work.
