JELLYSQUARE is a San Francisco based creative retouching studio founded in 2002. We offer everything from pre-shoot conceptualizing and technical consultation to creative retouching, photo-illustration, pre-press and fine-art printing. Our focus is on adding creativity and technical expertise to all our projects and delivering outstanding images to our clients.

JELLYSQUARE was founded in 2002 by Erik Pawassar. Erik moved to the US from Germany in 1994 and previously worked as an editorial and advertising photographer. He then merged his extensive knowledge of capture, lighting and black-and-white printing into the art of digital retouching. Over the last 10 years he has worked on countless projects with some of the most renowned advertising agencies and photographers.

We’ve put pimples on faces, whales into clouds, guys into shoeboxes, girls over strips of bacon and, yes, we have even put Zebras on parachutes and we know that sometimes this is what needs to be done to create a smashing image. A visual challenge is a good challenge and we enjoy putting our minds together to figure out a way to make it visually exciting.
