The Team, Near and Far
Also affectionately referred to as “The Face of the Place,” Paul is the driving creative force at Jacober Creative. A California boy at heart, he spent his formative years studying Journalism at Pepperdine University in Malibu. Later, he would go on to hone his design skills in New York’s early 90’s publishing scene, including Vibe, New York Magazine and a now defunct postcard design company (long live print!). After realizing he was a little more SoBe than L.E.S., Paul moved to Miami where he started building up a strong roster of clients in the arts and later real estate… the foundation of the current iteration of Jacober Creative.
When Paul isn’t weighing the benefits of circles vs. triangles, he’s discovering new destinations, preferably those with a distinct music scene and a strong architectural presence. Should he get lost, you’ll find him bopping to French Disco in a signature blue shirt, asking what’s for dessert.
A man of many hats (both figuratively and literally) Daniel is a partner at Jacober Creative, our resident Industrial Design expert, and Head of Business Development. Born in El Salvador where he started his career at Ogilvy & Mather after graduating from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, he soon realized he wanted to hone his knowledge of marketing and budget management and jumped at the opportunity to get his MBA from EAE Business School in Barcelona.
Our brand strategist brings over 11 years of working in Marketing and Advertising to Jacober Creative. After studying marketing at Florida State, she landed in New York working at Condé Nast for several years, first at Bon Appétit, then with SELF, Vanity Fair, and Vogue. She then made the jump to the wild world of startups, spending three years at Gilt Groupe.
Originally from Colombia, Luisa was raised in Disneylandia, but has lived in New York, Miami, and Los Angeles. Our resident fashion critic and a skillful cook, an invite to one of her dinner parties is one of Miami’s most coveted “get.”
Adriana is our Miami-based Art Director and calligrapher extraordinaire. Originally hailing from Guatemala, but a 305’er most of her life – she attended Miami International University of Art and Design where she received her BFA in Graphic Design. Adriana brings over 10 years of design experience (and discriminating taste) to Jacober Creative and was the lead Photographer and Art Director on the Simply Surfside campaign that received Gold AND “Best in Show” awards at the Visit Florida Flagler awards in 2016.
A fan of juxtaposing high and low, Adriana is currently applying her design skills to home renovation in the Little River District, where she plans on throwing a “High Tea” party in honor of Florida’s newly relaxed botanical laws.
Nicolette is not only our West Coast Art Director but also our Baking Expert. When she’s not taking on ambitious new baking projects (amethyst cake? look it up) she’s leading the way with our most avant-garde illustration and conceptual projects. We can always count on a sci-fi easter egg in most of Nicolette’s ideas, and we love her for it.
A graduate from Flagler College in St. Augustine — she’s happiest when backpacking with her identical twin sister (also an art director) through New Zealand, infantilizing her dog, Scottie Pippen, or exploring the concept of spaghettification in a black hole.
Hailing from Cheltenham (aka The Garden Town of England) — Kerry was on her way to Australia when she made a pitstop in Miami for 15 years. With a background in Accounting and a specialization in computer systems design & installation, Kerry began programming (for fun!) by picking up a couple of books out of sheer curiosity. Today, she leads an expert team of Jacober Creative developers in their preferred platform of Django/Python — which we love for its elegance, power and simplicity — much like Kerry herself. In addition to her encyclopedic programming knowledge, Kerry is also a veritable Michelin Guide on St. Petersburg, Florida’s best happy hours.
Victor: so much more than just a graphic designer. A graduate from the Cleveland Institute of Art with a BFA in Graphic Design, Victor also has strong industrial design, illustration and photography skills that match his multi-faceted personality. Always ready to quip the perfect Mean Girls quote for any situation, Victor is our resident pop-culture buff.
Bowie tumbled into our lives when he was brought to our office on Halloween 2016, in need of a home. He’s been working in our client relations department ever since. He regularly sits in on creative meetings and proactively lends a hand (paw), mostly around lunchtime.
Charley is our Chief Canine Officer. Although lacking in size, he makes up for it by scaling the tallest object. Probably the most judicious member of our team, he enjoys long naps and going commando whenever possible.
