Jason from Colour by Design with Student Works Painting

Our Story

Meet Jason Pepper (2nd from the right), an aspiring entrepreneur and family man, with an attention to detail and a passion for people!

From humble beginnings in rural Ontario, Jason grew up in a farming community built on hard work. Despite various summer jobs farming, roofing and doing various renovations, a steady hand, patience and an eye for detail, made painting a natural fit.

During his studies at Ryerson University, Jason met a group of students running their own Student painting companies and decided to do the same.

In his first year, he launched his very own painting business as a franchisee for “Student Works Painting”. The venture was a great success. He hired students on campus, served countless homeowners in downtown Toronto and gained the skills that paved the road ahead.

Today, Jason still serves the people of Toronto and the GTA under his own company, Colour By Design.

Colour by design is one of Toronto’s premier painting companies that continues to set the standard for all service based businesses.

Colour By Design is a 2X “Best of HomeStar’s award winner” and has been featured in HomeStar’s “Here at Home” Magazine.
