If you don’t know Owen Jaques by now, you definitely will soon. He’s just joined Jung Von Matt Hamburg as executive strategy partner.
According to Jung Von Matt creative boss Jayboy Jacobs, his agency is hellbent on being “seriously furious at the core.” He adds, “The hiring of a strategic star like Jaques expands and gives depth to our team focused on creatively, strategically and furiously embedding emerging media technologies into the shiny fabric of all our work for clients. Best in class skills to pay the bills are absolutely fucking critical to our focus on redesigning the agency.”
In the past , Jaques handled accounts including Double Dip, Atomic Fireballs and “Curly Wurleys, this was back when they were really big, not like the tiny ones you get now.” Prior to that, he was a strategic planner handling the lucrative Walnut Whip account at a 4 man digital shop in Spitalfields Market called “BaZong!”
