JaiBenteau-Profile

Jai Benteau  AKA BASS CARAVAN

Graphic Designer, DJ, Producer, Promoter

What can I say, I’ve been doing this for a hell of a long time! I graduated from the Alberta College of Art & Design back in 1998 with a degree in Fine Arts. Like most artists I never thought I’d have to compromise my artistic integrity and sell my creative services to the corporate market but that was just the younger, slightly more naive version of myself. From starting and running an International urban street wear line called Evolve Clothing for 5 years to working as a commercial designer, co-owner and art director for AERA Creative for 8+ years, I’ve learned the full spectrum of the graphic design world. I also have a design degree from the International Academy of Design in Montreal, been a DJ for the past 18 years, co-produced some stunning events through Le Cirque de la Nuit and kept my passion for creativity through it all. I love design, I love music and merging the two together is a powerful combo.

As my business partner and creative mind behind Cirque, I have always trusted Jai to ensure our visual marketing presence is unique and representative of our brand.  I have always been able to look at a sea of flyers and know which ones were Cirque.  His images and designs always stand out from the crowd with a distinct level of caliber and creativity.  He has a unique ability to take a concept from our imaginations, and create it visually to be shared.  He always takes great care in every project for Cirque, or other clients that he is working with, and never ceases to amaze me with his creative ingenuity.  Whether it be our flyers, our posters, our digital graphics or our website, he has created a recognized brand in our company that I have yet to see compared.

I’ve used Jai numerous times in the last few years for art work, album covers, flyers and logos for our production company, Sound Advice. Jai’s always amazed me with his quality of work and creativity. Being able to take the basics that is in ones head and make it a reality. It’s nothing short of art and he does it so well. He is easy to work with and is one of the most professional people I know. There is no one better in my mind and I will always take my design business to Jai.
