Some creatives you want on your team because of their craft. Some creatives you want on your team because of their concepts. Some because of digital prowess, or work ethic, or dependability.  And some you simply want on your team because of their good character. As a CCO it’s often difficult to balance the right alchemy of assets. But once in a while we’re gifted with the type of creative who embodies all of the above. Jared Hamaguchi is that creative. In all the years I’ve known him, he’s never deviated from those qualities. And I’m happy to say with certainty that he never will.

Jared prides himself on gaining a complete understanding of the strategy and subject matter well before starting to formulate creative ideas. This methodical process allows for an end product that is far superior to the original idea. Jared is very easy to work with and brings a great deal of original thought to every project he manages.

I've known Jared for a number of years, and have always appreciated his design sense, attention to detail, and willingness to consider a fresh perspective, along with offering up his own, usually just when the team needs it.
