Jackson uses consumer insights combined with an understanding of the category and business to inform the development of communications platforms that provide inspiration and guidance for a number of PHD’s US clients. Jackson also seeks to ensure that these communications platforms and the resultant ideas will form a synergy with the work undertaken by other partner agencies.
