Flavor Los Angeles Adds Jason Cook as Staff Creative Director
From the release:
The leaders from creative production studio Flavor are very proud to announce the addition of Jason Cook to their Los Angeles staff in the position of creative director. According to executive producer Darren Jaffe, the appointment is effective immediately.
An LA native, Cook is an award-winning creative director and graphic designer who has spent more than 10 years working for some of the top design companies in the advertising industry. For the past two years, he has been freelancing as a creative director/director for Arsenal FX, Rabbit Content, Stardust, Troika, We Are Royale and others.
Prior to that, he spent three years as a creative director for the LA office of Superfad, contributing to campaigns for the likes of Coca-Cola, Pella Windows and Visa Olympics while directing spots for Fiat, THQ and League of Legends on the Mac, which he also wrote.
Cook was also partner/creative director for NYLON for three years, and that followed more than seven years working as a busy freelancer after a stint as Brand New School’s very first intern. Cook earned his degree in graphic design from Art Center College of Design in 2001, and subsequently taught there as well.
According to Jaffe, Cook’s extensive background in traditional and motion graphic design also includes work in narrative in the 3D realm, as well as live-action direction. “Jason always looks to solve the issues that are most appropriate for a project without being constrained by specific techniques,” he began. “He brings so much to the group in terms of leading teams, building client relationships and building brands. With his thirst for new things and his infectious spirit, Jason is a perfect fit for helping us take Flavor to the next level.”
“My love for strong design, great storytelling, and innovative, artistic thinking fits right in with the team here,” Cook added. “Flavor is on the rise, and it’s really a pleasure to be part of something that is in the early stages of growth and potential. I am excited to lead the LA office into the future of better and stronger creative.”
