Jac Currie


Jac Currie is a multidisciplinary designer based in New Orleans. He’s been the brand director of Defend New Orleans (DNO) since 2003. DNO has provided the opportunity to develop apparel,  retail interiors, video projects, events and social media campaigns.

Jac has traveled often and started several smaller projects that now seem like past lives – regular DJ work, music promotion, and various apparel and design ventures. He owned and operated The Saint bar, from 2008 to 2011, before leaving to complete a graduate degree in architecture from UCLA.

All of his projects are unified by a strong sense of personal commitment. Each has benefited from a natural passion for branding, design and team building. The goal is always to align inner and outer purpose as much as possible — to cultivate greater understanding and depth in life and work.
