he helmed some of the agency's most awarded work including the
acclaimed Game of Balls campaign for testicular cancer awareness and the
innovative "NRMA Fire Blanket". Prior to that, he spent three and half
years at Y&R/VML.

The chance to work with Ben (Welsh) again and be part of the talented
team he is leading with Tara (Ford) was an invitation I couldn't say no
"Change is what challenges our creative souls and I am
looking forward to the opportunity to collaborate with new creative
people across DDB Sydney's diverse set of brands."
career, Jackson has worked with a range of brands including NRMA
Insurance, CommBank, Optus, Heineken, Jagermeister, DC Shoes,
Quiksilver, Colgate, Revlon, The Australian, LG and Kelloggs.
his spare time, Jackson is passionate about creating work that betters
the community, from his much-awarded Missing Person Pre-Roll to
Colgate's Mouth-guard sponsorship of the Rabbitohs that continues to
educate kids on the importance of dental care. He's most proud of the
"Signed Finds by Vinnies" campaign, which earned millions for the local
charity. Despite being a self confessed 'digital-first' creative, he
once had a scholarship to NSW College of Fine Arts for painting and
hopes to one day have a portrait hung in the Archibald.
DDB Sydney chief creative officer Ben Welsh said Jackson is a great fit for the agency.
Welsh: "He's famous for fame-generating ideas. His understanding of
social and digital means he gets fluency. And he's passionate about work
that works. Perfect DDB credentials."
