Jonathan has been representing Pearlfisher on the global stage for 19 years. Prior to Pearlfisher, he was Creative Director of Sterling Design New York and Michael Peters New York, and began his design career at Michael Peters & Partners in London. Never one to simply accept the status quo, Jonathan continually provokes and questions the world, inspiring Pearlfisher to create design that makes the future better. Jonathan has seen Pearlfisher grow from fledgling start up to international design leader and he remains very hands-on, tackling the day-to-day decisions that the design business generates. Jonathan has been put forward for the Executive Committee by Dick Powell of Seymour Powell and Writer and Brand Consultant, Lisa Desforges.
Of this opportunity, Jonathan says, “the smart people know design now sits central to most brand identity, product, experience and communications, because great design has by default, an enduring quality, it is consistent and yet fresh and creative in all its manifestations. D&AD has long recognised this, and continues to do so.”
“As a designer who has worked through 3 decades of design transformation internationally, I feel now is a great time to be part of fulfilling D&AD’s potential in these changed times, furthering the power of design and the positive impact it makes on our lives and society.”
