James has created strategy and highly-effective marketing campaigns for clients such as Budweiser, Microsoft, Virgin, GM, HP, Whiskas, Mars Inc. and many others. He’s worked at major ad agencies in LA, NYC, Boston, St. Louis and San Francisco. He’s also been engaged by numerous SF Bay Area startups to develop complete marketing programs.
James founded Indelible Branding in 2006. The agency has worked with dozens of clients developing highly innovative digital, social and traditional marketing campaigns.
Over the years James has created on and offline advertising that’s won awards from Clio, One Show, Best of Show National Addy’s, International Film & TV Festival, Belding, Effie, Mobius, New York Festivals, London Intl. Advertising Awards, Mercury Radio Awards, Hollywood Radio & Television plus ADWEEK’s “10 Best TV Spots of the Decade.” Other than writing, two of his favorite pursuits are hiking up mountains and playing guitar, which he doesn’t ordinarily do at the same time.
Interactive & Web Designer
Rocky began his design career during the early stages of the Internet explosion while working for various Silicon Valley start-ups. After the bubble burst, he decided to launch his own design firm. His initial clients included Google, Symantec, Symax, and Polycom, as well as a number of non-profits such as Second Harvest Food Bank, Seattle Aquarium, and Stanford Hospital & Clinics.
Rocky utilizes his experience in interactive and print design to create synergies between the physical and the digital design worlds. He believes that understanding the nature of good design in all mediums is essential to creating work that will stand out on the web.
When Rocky isn’t working on design (but still obsessively thinking about it), he enjoys cooking for family and friends, photography, reading, and spending time with his wife and three children. That is, when they can get him away from the computer screen.
Art Direction & Digital Design
Jeff’s long journey in exemplary design has included stints at NW/Ayer, DMB&B, RPA, and most recently nearly a decade at TBWA/Chiat Day in LA as Art Director and Group CD.
He’s been involved in brand development for clients such as Charter Communications, Energizer, Pioneer, Visa, Whiskas, XM Radio, Earthlink, E-Trade, DirecTV, and nearly a dozen startups. His automotive experience includes Nissan, Infiniti, Toyota, Honda and GM. There’s a good chance you’ve seen some of his work over the past decade, mostly because it stands out from the ordinary. That’s also why he’s won essentially every major award in advertising.
Jeff holds a B.A. in Advertising Design from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. He currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife, three children and far too many vehicles.
John enjoys solving digital design puzzles in the new world – the one where we’re all connected. He believes that’s a larger task now, both in terms of capturing attention, and coming up with ideas that will work across multiple platforms. John’s art direction has appeared in Newsweek, and has also been featured on CNN and PBS.
John has created everything from Super Bowl commercials to a microsite for a local, bay area restaurant. He was also the Group Creative Director behind the brand launch for Salesforce.com. Recently John has been involved with social media and digital design for IZZE, Jamba Juice, Yogi Teas, Peets Coffee and Disney.
His awards include Clio, Cannes, NY Art Directors Show, Addys and the SF Show. When he’s not glued to the screen, John likes to draw cartoons. One series was used in a campaign for United Way.
Paul began on the publishing side of print and digital media, including stints with Miller Freeman, CMP, and Fawcette Technical Publications. His most recent publishing role was as VP of the FTP Network, developing custom media projects across print, online and events for brands including IBM, Sun, Intel, Hewlett Packard, and BEA.
In 2005 Paul joined Just Media, where he developed media planning relationships with VMWare, Motorola, Juniper Networks, and Hitachi Data Systems, among others. He also helped numerous clients optimize their media buys in the emerging world of social and content marketing and across emerging new platforms including mobile.
A native of Chicago, Paul arrived in California in 1989, but still retains his mid-western sensibilities. When he’s not helping Indelible clients with leading edge ideas for reaching their prospects, Paul can frequently be spotted singing baroque and jazz choral music with various groups around the Bay Area.
