Jamey Aiken

Strategy Director

“I always seek to challenge the status quo, using my own experience to broaden the expectations of others — especially client partners. I know that great work requires great teams. And teamwork requires players who embody paradox: self-assurance and humility, independence and cooperation, groundedness and daring.”

Bridging strategy and design, Jamey brings a unique perspective to brand development. He has a passion for connecting brands to their purpose, rooted in what matters to people. Jamey has designed complex brand identity programs, communication platforms, and transformation activities for businesses and organizations of all sizes — from established, bluechip brands to start-ups to nonprofits. He’s as comfortable collaborating with executive leaders as he is with on-the-ground employees. Driven to align organizations and teams with their fullest potential, Jamey employs both rigor and imagination to create human-centered insights and solve complex business problems.

Jamey is equal parts creative strategist, change maker, and organizational coach. Everything he does is vested in the power of storytelling. He believes it’s not simply how brands communicate relevance to customers, it’s how companies create a cohesive culture. No matter what the context, he works to develop core stories, align teams around a shared purpose, envision new futures, and create powerful visual expressions.
