David 'Jacko' Jackson is one of our best kept secrets. But if he keeps on producing such groundbreaking work, then the whole world will know.
Chief Creative Officer @ DDB Sydney
David aka Jacko is a passionate creative with a great eye for a good idea. He has exceptionally strong aesthetic sense and capability - which gels particularly well with his broad understanding of how to bring ideas to life across multiple digital platforms. In the past couple of years I've seen David really grow - from that techy design guy to a much better, more hungry, big picture, thinking, selling creative.
Chief Creative Officer @ GBT
David is what I would call a perfect storm of creativity, technological expertise, puritanical work ethic, passion and perseverance. Any one of these qualities would be great. But, this guy has them all. As such, he has been a valuable and welcome addition to my team over the years. While recommending him wholeheartedly, I look forward to our continued collaboration in the future, particularly on those projects that require a real pro.

Jacko is a Superstar. One of those rare talents that is the Jack of all trades. Not only a brilliant Digital Art Director, but an awesome bloke. He always managed his team and projects with a smile on his face and whatever problem was thrown at him, he didn't lose that smile. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to do great work.
Founder MADE WITH +
David's enthusiasm and genuine love of finding great creative solutions for the client is matched by his excellent all-round digital skills and a 'make it happen' attitude. 'Jacko' (he says there are too many David's in the world) sense of humour make him a pleasure to work with at any level. I have no hesitation in recommending him to you.
Regional Director Havas
David brings a rare entrepreneurial mindset and passion to his creative work. I worked with David over two years and every day in that time I saw his drive, ambition and leadership inspire the team around him and lead to work the whole company was proud of. Above all David is a great person who naturally builds a strong creative culture. I hope to work with David again in the future at which point I don’t recommend him to anyone.

If you look up the word ‘proactive’ in the dictionary, you’ll see a picture of Jacko. He's that guy. That guy who comes up with the awesome left field idea that’s spot-on for the brand. That guy who cracks the different way in that leads to pitch wins. That guy who thinks way beyond traditional media and is in his element with tech ideas, new product ideas, PR, sponsorship and so on. That guy who wins award after award after award. That guy who’s last to leave the agency at night and still the first one there in the morning. That guy who gets shit done, makes things happen and fights for great work. He’s a proper modern art director and awesome bloke to work with.
This industry is littered with people who simply pretend. Then there are those who fight and keep fighting even when you think there is nothing left. David is one of those people. His relentless pushing has resulted in success for the agency as well as for himself. His work and craft is beautiful and he is all round nice guy to top off it off.

David, AKA Jacko, is one of the most talented creatives I have had the pleasure of working with. What sets David apart is his innate drive to think beyond the brief. I have worked with David on a number of clients and brands where he has proactively come up with new, innovative and incremental ideas that we were able to successfully pitch and sell into our clients. He literally never stops thinking about new and different ways to reach consumers. It truly is a pleasure to work with David and clients love him too. He just can't help express his passion and enthusiasm for his ideas and clients simply love to work with him. The proof is in the results. David's work is amongst some of the most awarded work in the agency group.
