L.A.-based production studio Flavor announced that it has hired Jason Cook as creative director.
Cook 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, and We Are Royale. Prior to that, he spent three years as a creative director for the L.A. 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 first intern. Cook earned his degree in graphic design from Art Center College of Design in 2001, and subsequently taught there as well.
“Jason always looks to solve the issues that are most appropriate for a project without being constrained by specific techniques,” said executive producer Darren Jaffe. “He brings so much to the group in terms of leading teams, building client relationships and building brands.”
“My love for strong design, great storytelling, and innovative, artistic thinking fits right in with the team here,” said Cook. “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.”
