Who we are

Univers is a team with expertise in strategy, design and code, with a talented crew of collaborators. Lead by Andrew Ireland & Dean Jacobson, we work with established brands, start-ups and individuals across varying industries. As a studio, clients have direct access to both directors, with each engagement generally being managed by one director.

Dean Jacobson

  • Creative Director, Designer
I’ve been primarily focused on creating new visual identities and websites for small start-ups to established brands for the better part of a decade. Applying a holistic, reductive design approach I’m highly skilled in generating ambitious ideas and distilling them into clear, purpose-driven creative solutions.

Andrew Ireland

  • Director, Designer, Developer
Though my foundations as a designer are rooted in brand identities and editorial design, my primary focus these days is on how brands appear on screen. I’m interested in combining design and code to create digital experiences with a level of refinement and polish that set our clients apart.


We bring on freelancers on a project-based need. From time to time, job postings are listed on our Instagram.
