Bio

Janson-Bio-Photo-250px

I am a creative problem solver. As a visual-led creative director, I strive to create work that evokes feelings first and foremost, rather than simply old-school ad messaging. I’ve worked across the spectrum of marketing brand experiences and events, to film and video, to shopper marketing and retail strategy before simply settling on the term “Brand Architect” for what I tell my family I do during the week (not really, that would probably cause even more confused looks). Clients I’ve worked with have been as varied as my experience, including: MillerCoors, OtterBox, LifeProof, Leinenkugel’s, Peroni Nastro Azzurro, Walmart, Comcast SportsNet, Johnson Controls, Kalahari Resorts, and Sargento Cheese. I’m most excited by projects that involve creative solutions that are surprising, original, beautiful, and honest.
