In his 30 year career Jake Chessum has worked for an impressive mix of editorial and advertising companies from all over the world and his clients include Apple TV+, IBM, Pentagram, T-Mobile, Levis, HSBC, Vanity Fair, The New York Times Magazine, Esquire, HBO amongst many others.

He has published two books: The New York Look Book, in conjunction with New York Magazine. The best selling book chronicled stylish New Yorkers captured on the street, and a self-published title: Rubbish, which depicts discarded items on the street.
