I have worked with Jonathan as both a colleague and a client over the years and have enjoyed every second of our interaction. Not only is he highly creative, giving original thought to everything he does, but he’s also bloody lovely and approaches briefs with a balanced and genuine interest. I wouldn’t hesitate to suggest that you engage him on whatever project you’re working on, right now. You won’t be disappointed.
Helen Davies – Head of Client Services, Zest the Agency
Jonathan is never short of ideas, words or scribbles. He’s versatile and happy creating for any media, client or brand. We’ve worked together for years and I’ve still not managed to break him. Thoroughly nice chap – highly recommended.
Jason Hunt – Designer, See Think Do
I have worked alongside Jonathan on a number of occasions and have always been impressed by his disciplined thinking and creative integrity. As both a writer and art director his approach to any problem is refreshingly innovative yet always professional and pragmatic.
John Bayley – Creative Director, Rodgers & Rodgers
Animal Aid has worked with Jonathan many times over the last decade and credits him with being part of the team that put together one of our most successful films (The Dark Side of Horse Racing). Simple, yet thoroughly effective, the film stands as one of our most useful campaign tools.
Fiona Pereira – Campaign Manager, Animal Aid
To be honest you blew the whole team away. Idea after idea and every one bang on brief. It’s rare that I come across someone who’s as strong conceptually as they are good with writing. Looking forward to our next project together.
Sarah Champneys – Freelance Account Director
Jonathan was brilliant to work with and got his head round our complex brief in lightning speed. Anthony Nolan is not a simple charity take in, but Jonathan took on all the information and asked all the right questions to get to the heart of what we needed. He made life much simpler, which isn’t always a guarantee when briefing someone new! His ideas were fresh and varied, and he has brought our project to life.
Anya Muir Wood – Senior Copywriter, Anthony Nolan
Jonathan is a pleasure to work with. He gets his head around the trickiest of briefs really quickly and his thinking is sharp and fresh. We’ve used him for creative concepts and his copywriting skills, and have never been disappointed.
Kate Page – Creative Director, Page & Page
Jonathan is that rare thing – a highly creative person who knows how to focus his imagination and get under the skin of the problem at hand. It also helps that he genuinely does combine an art director’s eye with a copywriter’s fluency. That’s why he gets results. If I were a client I’d want him on my side.
Peter White – Creative Director previously at Dorland, JWT, Leo Burnett, Butler Dennis Garland and Slaymaker Cowley White
Jonathan is a talented creative writer and all round lovely chap. He takes time to understand the brief, isn’t afraid to ask questions and contributes great ideas. He pulls out all the stops and always delivers to an excellent standard. Top qualities? Great results, personable and high integrity.
Rob Ryan – Experience Director & Founder, Rabbit & Hare
We needed a strapline that summed up the essence of the brand, a tone of voice defined and complete website copy overhaul. You understood exactly what was needed and I have a very very happy client. Really couldn’t have asked for more – looking forward to working together again soon.
Steve Glew – Creative Director, Black Bug Creative
I’ve worked with Jonathan for 10 years or more as both client and creative collaborator. If you’re looking for campaign concepts, copywriting, art direction or creative direction, he always brings a bit of magic to the table. And he’s a great guy as well, with no ego getting in the way…!
Paul Davidson – Director, Vertical Productions
Jonathan is one of those rare animals who is good at most things he does. A great asset when you’re up against it – flexible, creative and calm. He’s always a great guy to have on your side.
Peter Dobie – Creative Director, ex-Manifesto and Toybox, currently Designhouse
We have worked with Jonathan for some time now on a number of projects and from the big idea to creating and managing whole campaigns he can always be relied on to deliver.
Dominic Rodgers – Director, Rodgers and Rodgers
Church Urban Fund has worked closely with Jonathan on a range of integrated fundraising campaigns and a major rebrand. We have always been impressed by his creative input and innovative solutions. He is a great guy to work with and really “gets” things to provide effective results.
Jeremy Aspinall – Director of Fundraising & Communications, Church Urban Fund
I worked with Jonathan for several years during my time with Dubai Tourism and Commerce Marketing. Jonathan produced monthly commerce and weekly tourism newsletters and was in charge of the creative, editing and other aspects related to the readership. He had a critical eye for detail and constantly recommended subject matters and images that would increase popularity and visits to our website. He was totally dedicated to delivering a professional service and we liked him so much that we invited him for a visit to Dubai. We also enjoyed his monthly visits to our office for brain storming sessions. Jonathan and I are now pursuing different paths with our careers but I surely miss working with him a great deal.
Fayha Sulta – UAE Business Consultant, formerly Commerce Marketing Manager, Government of Dubai, Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing
I have worked with Jonathan across a variety of projects including whitepapers, flyers, exhibition stands, infographics and animations. He has always done a fantastic job in terms of interpreting the brief, communicating at each stage, managing timelines and delivering an end product that we can be really proud of. A pleasure to work with!
Michelle Kelly – Marketing Director, EPG Health Media
Jonathan really ‘gets’ what we’re trying to do and say as a charity – at times better than I do myself! This, combined with his creative direction, skilled copy writing and sensitive understanding of the best way to communicate with our supporter base, has established a vibrant and appealing campaign.
