About / Contact

Hi, my name is Ivan Cash.
I’m an interactive artist, filmmaker, and educator who runs a small, San Francisco-based creative studio. We specialize in honest, meaningful content—both art and commercial—designed for a more human world.

I love sharing my perspective and ideas through these projects, and through teaching, public speaking, and collaborating with culture-shaping companies across the globe.

I'm founder of the Snail Mail My Email project and author of the accompanying book. My work has exhibited internationally, been featured in CNN, TIME, The New York Times, and Juxtapoz, and I've been recognized as an Art Directors Club Young Gun.

I believe talking to strangers can change the world but nothing would make me happier than if you closed your eyes for 20 seconds and just listened to your breath.

Available for:
• Projects & Commissions
• Film Production
• Creative Consulting
• Talks & Workshops
• Ping-Pong Lessons
