Jon Kallus is just a New Yorker in London who loves writing about himself in third person. He’s also totally a Creative Director at Wieden+Kennedy.
Jon and his partner Ash
used to run the global Bose account at Grey London. Before that, they ran the worldwide Bacardi account out of London at BETC.
Jon moved to BBH from Goodby Silverstein & Partners in San Francisco. At Goodby, he wrote a fully integrated campaign to launch the Chevy Cruze, and helped introduce the biggest Doritos ever with a sixty foot vending machine at SXSW.
Prior to that, Jon was part of the team that turned Grey New York around. He wrote the agency’s first big campaign for DirecTV,
starring a very fake billionaire and his very real mini giraffe. Jon also worked across the entire Diageo portfolio at Grey, creating the first new campaign for Crown Royal whisky in over a decade.
Jon is a regular instructor, speaker, and judge at D&AD in London and, in 2016, sat on the New Blood Black Pencil jury. He has spoken about advertising and creativity at Loyola Marymount University Film School in Los Angeles, Middlesex University Business School in London, and taught at Miami Ad School in San Francisco. He is obsessed with truth, neatly bearded, and decreasingly earnest.
Totally look at pictures of him on Insta. #f4f
