Creating harmony.

Welcome to Jack Yan & Associates. We’re an independent firm that has often innovated since we started in 1987. Many ideas were promoted or realized early at JY&A, including virtual companies (1987), digital fonts (1987), digital magazines (1990), online magazines (1994), socially responsible global brands (2000), taking an online magazine into print (2004), then to do so in more than one country (2005), and publishing an international sustainable style editorial (2005).
