SPIKYJUMPER© is me, Jake Peet.
The word Spikyjumper came from an early childhood nickname given to me by my father and I re-adopted it over twenty years ago when trying to think of a name for my photography business. Today it is a unique and memorable brand identity that has a meaningful story behind it and it playfully describes my sometimes prickly but inquisitive nature.
I'm a designer, artworker and creative with over 16 years experience in the studios of various marketing and advertising agencies. My career started in technical and creative artworking and I've lead the production and delivery of print and digital assets for a wide range of brands.
These days I am comfortable switching between artworking and production duties for print, digital and interactive using InDesign, retouching and image editing in PhotoShop, vector creation in Illustrator and designing and producing motion graphics compositions in After Effects. I've always been a bit of a 'Jake of all Trades' and I'm competently and confidently capable of liaising with clients directly – from managing projects to presenting creative.
Having started out at art collage with special interests in drawing, illustration and photography, my career path has lead me full circle to the creative place I want to be – a fully integrated designer with my sights firmly locked on art direction.
