Jay Moldave and Lauren Cook lead an award-winning team of strategists, marketers, designers, artists, writers, technology experts and printers who work together to create solutions for your business.
MoldaveDesigns was founded by Jay Moldave in 1980. After stints at PSE&G (as their first art director) and a variety of agencies, Jay went out on his own, and hasn’t looked back. He’s worked with numerous companies, large and small, local and global since then, and some clients have been with Jay for decades!
In 2015, the company name was changed to MC2: Moldave & Cook Strategic Communications, to better reflect a wider range of services.
Graphic design is in his blood, and DNA, apparently, since both of his children are also designers. When Jay has a day off (or even an hour) he can be found playing blues guitar, working in the garden or cooking gourmet meals (not necessarily at the same time.)
Jay has taught Graphic Design at Union County College and William Paterson University. He has also served as VP of Communications for the NJ Chapter of the American Marketing Association, and VP of Membership, Volunteers and Web & Technology for the NJ Chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators .
Lauren Cook is responsible for account services, strategic marketing, and new business development as well generating spontaneous creative ideas. She’s not afraid to say “Let’s try it!” nor is she afraid to say “No.” She’s great at making you understand the process, time frame and cost of achieving your marketing goals. Music is her passion and she sings in a rock and roll band.
