Jay Kavanagh

Jay Kavanagh, Creative Director of Kavells, brings a blend of creativity and hands-on industry experience to the Weymouth-based digital design agency. His journey began at London’s Vibrant Studios, but it was his 17 years of managing an ecommerce business for a major UK retailer that really fine-tuned his skills. All the while, Jay has been striking a balance between artistic vision and practical know-how, providing clients with innovative design solutions.

Away from the digital drawing board, there’s nothing Jay enjoys more than a good game of badminton or rooting for his local football team, Weymouth FC. But it’s his two daughters who really keep him on his toes outside of work. With a life filled with creativity, sports, and family, Jay Kavanagh celebrates a well-rounded approach to life, which is reflected in his multifaceted role at Kavells.
