hello

I’m Paul Jason, an ambitious and accomplished award winning creative director with over 20 years experience across design and digital, I hold a track record of idea generation, art direction and team leadership. I like to listen, love to solve problems and believe that design should simplify connectivity between brands, consumers and people. 

As a seasoned creative director I am confident and proven in establishing, mentoring and directing teams. I have delivered industry and audience recognised campaigns, products and platforms. I thrive on collaboration; believing it to be the fundamental building block of success. I savour opportunities to work with people who hold contradictory ideas, differing abilities and varied experiences; having partnered with strategic thought leaders, copywriters, art directors, tech heads and UX boffins to deliver richer, deeper solutions.

I hold a wealth of experience, gleaned from managing DUKE Interactive, a highly successful digital design agency and having consulted at some of the world’s leading advertising and digital agencies. I see digital, backed with design, as the catalyst to serving exceptional experiences, yet I know that they are worthless without a solid creative concept at their heart. I take everyday as a challenge to learn, try something new and roll up my sleeves.

Clients include:- Nissan, McDonald’s, Google EMEA, Levis EMEA, Universal Music, Island Records, The Economist Intelligence Unit, Disney Interactive, Away Resorts, Knowsley Zoo, Total Energies, The Body Shop, Vodafone and Hutchison 3.

I love all things digital and I also have an ‘outside of work’ life that includes a passion for paragliding, cycling, climbing, shark fishing, tiger wrestling, snail racing, worm breeding, movies, stop motion filmingillustration and collecting sp-orks; the 80's NYC craze that recognised the spiritual union of half spoons and half forks. Okay, I made a few of them up ;)

It was inspiring to work with someone who was as passionate about our business as the creative work. This deep knowledge of Nissan’s business ensured that concepts met the brief through to the final polished delivery.

Nissan were in a period of transition in digital during the time I worked with Paul and he was never afraid to bring ideas that were brave and had stand out which fitted with Nissan’s brand position. Working on the Island Records partnership for Nissan was the first campaign where digital fully sat at the real heart of an integrated campaign which was lead by Paul and his team.

Paul’s strengths are also clear in managing and developing the team that works with him. The quality that was driven from him through his team was excellent ensuring that the work always met his high standards.

His enthusiasm and energy are inspiring!

He knows the digital world and juggles various concepts naturally, it’s also a real fun to have him around the office.

Paul is one of the most driven and focused Creative Directors I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He has the ability to excite and get the most out of his team no matter the brief.

Paul’s the kind of creative director you want to work with because that’s exactly how it is - you WITH him, not FOR him. He’s always in your corner, and the autonomy he champions makes you feel a part of something exciting.
— Trak Ellis-Hill, Creative Director, MOFILM

Paul is one the best Creative Directors there is. He gets the job done and understands how to inspire people around him. Paul’s a nice chap, your mate, he will have your back, but he expects the best from everyone. What I like about Paul is that he’s not some creative wanker trying to be cool, for him everyone is about the work and the people around him.
