Spikyjumper is me, Jake Peet.
The word came from an early childhood nickname given to me by my father who was something of a hippy. Now it is a unique and memorable brand identity.
I studied General Art & Design at Reigate School of Art followed by Editorial & Advertising Photography at the Kent Institute of Art & Design — now UCA.
Design & Artwork
I have nearly 20 years experience in the studios of various marketing and advertising agencies including Ogilvy and OLIVER — as well as a range of independents too. My career started in photographic and digital imaging sales consultancy, expanding through product marketing, training and on to creative artworking and design.
As a Senior Creative Artworker I've managed studios — designing, implementing and maintaining processes that include workflow, colour management and quality control. Today I'd describe myself as fully 'integrated', capable of working in most formats on practically all channel types — switching seamlessly between print, digital and motion.
I'm an advanced Adobe CC user and can happily hand draw scamps and storyboards to express ideas. I can also confidently take the lead on creative and technical production ideas, steering colleagues as well as selling ideas to the client based on meaningful rational.
My photographs are an observation of the person, place or thing that caught my eye — some of them commissioned and paid for, some of them just because.
I also photograph weddings professionally, take a look at my wedding photography website if that interests you or if you or someone you know is getting married.
