What led me here?
A product designer by training and having set up Design Bridge Structure, I launched JDO in 2003 with fellow creative industry high flier, Paul Drake.
Back then, our aim was simple - deliver world class creative solutions for A brands we chose to work on and to enjoy the process along the way! Beauty, haircare, beer and spirits brands from world ranking brand houses such as Unilever, Carlsberg and Diageo are amongst our elite clientele and we boast designs for billion dollar brands such as LUX, Dove, Ponds and Carlsberg as well as more boutique brands such as Bols vodka and Peroni Nastro Azzurro.
I fundamentally believe that consummate quality matters, from our creative designs to staff recruitment to client servicing.
What makes us different? Our complete focus on the commercial results of our projects. Whilst we are immensely proud of our creative solutions for each and every project launched, we are fully aware that we are designing for a purpose and not a beauty parade.
Nearly 12 years on, our raison d'être remains the same. We are still really enjoying the journey, as are our clients, but it is our creative and commercial results that continue to enjoy huge success in the marketplace.
Why JDO? Because some agencies are genuinely different!
