Will Jara is Ceisler Media’s multimedia designer, creating newsletters and social media content for clients.
For example, Will recently produced a grant application video for a social service agency. He interviewed clients of the agency on video, edited the interviews and crafted an attractive, persuasive proposal.
He creates newsletters for clients – shooting photographs, laying out pages and fashioning attractive graphics.
Will films events for Ceisler Media clients, posting the best, most compelling moments on their social media pages. He generated an absorbing Facebook post for one client by combining short testimonials from patients who had been helped by their treatment centers.
Will came to Ceisler Media in December 2017 from Jet Blue Airways, where he was a branding specialist and, before that, a customer service crewmember at the Philadelphia International and JFK Airports.
Prior to that, he worked for the corporate office of Dylan’s Candy Bar, the boutique candy chain founded by Dylan Lauren, daughter of designer Ralph Lauren. He started as an intern in New York City and worked his way up to the corporate office, where his responsibilities included graphic design, signage, packaging design, and graphics for the company’s website.
Will grew up in Jackson Heights, Queens, New York. He studied architecture at the High School of Art and Design in Manhattan. He graduated in 2009 from the New York City College of Technology, with a degree in advertising and graphic design.
Will currently lives in Maple Shade, NJ with his rescue dog, Annie and his 23-year-old tortoise, Bobby.
Will is deeply involved with charities aimed at helping animals. For example, he has volunteered for the American Airlines “Puppies in Flight Program.” In that program, he picks up puppies being groomed as service dogs, and flies with them to their new homes. He has also volunteered at the Animal Care and Control Center of NYC as an Animal Care Technician.
He and co-workers at Jet Blue organized a drive to aid a Dominican Republic orphanage, the Casa de Luz, which helps children with disabilities who are abandoned by their families. The group collected clothes, diapers, toys and food in the United States and personally delivered them to the children in Santo Domingo.
Will is an avid traveler, with his favorite destinations being Rio de Janeiro, Croatia, Cartagena and Barcelona. And he enjoys trying new, unusual foods, including frog legs and octopus.
