JA Adds Talent to Creative Team

CHICAGO, July 1, 2014 — Jacobs Agency is proud to announce the addition of two team members to its creative team: Valerie Sherpa, Traffic/Production Manager, and Joanna Mirowska, Art Director

With nearly a decade of experience, Valerie comes to Jacobs Agency from shops across the country, such as Hollywood’s Tuesday Creative and Crispin Porter & Bogusky in Boulder, CO. She has managed schedules, timelines, budgets and production teams for clients like Pepsi, Heineken USA, Microsoft, Jimmy Dean and The Grammy’s. With her thorough understanding of specs and production, and her superior organization and prioritization skills, Valerie will be managing workflow and resources for all clients and projects in the Agency.

“We are thrilled to welcome Valerie to the team. I’m so impressed with her quick thinking and her grasp of the balance between account and creative,” said Flora Caputo, VP and Executive Creative Director. “I’m excited for Valerie to shape and contribute to the Agency’s process. She is sure to be an asset for us and our clients as we continue to grow and evolve.”

Joanna comes to Jacobs Agency from Central Coast Agency and The Brand Salon, where she applied her design skills to clients like NTT, Poaster, Peapod and Hampton Inn. With a passion solving clients’ business problems through storytelling, Joanna brings a new level of strategic design to the Agency’s creative team. In her new role, she’ll apply her design skills to clients like Ace Hardware, Maplehurst Bakeries and HIMSS.

“I so admire the level of thinking and strategy Joanna brings to her work,” added Caputo. “From high-level concepts through to execution, she keeps her eye on the bigger picture and always strives to find the smartest, most efficient creative solution to meet the client’s objectives. We are pleased she’s here.”
