Award Winning Quirk Creative, a woman-owned business, has brought on Jenna Josepher as executive creative director. A native New Yorker, and lauded director, Jenna is poised to take on this new role and provide the creative vision for the agency. 

Prior to Quirk, she worked as the creative director at Function of Beauty, associate creative director at The New York Times, and has spent (almost entirely all) her spare time building a robust freelance directing career. She has spearheaded creative for music videos, commercials, campaigns, brands, and editorial projects.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to have Jenna on board and for her to be bringing her constructive, considered and clever approach to advertising to our growing roster of clients” said Gaelan Draper, chief creative officer and co-founder Quirk Creative. “She’s an expert in cross-channel video storytelling and brings deep direct-to-consumer brand building experience. She has all the right know how for this moment in time, the growth of our agency, and for the ever-changing media landscape – especially social.”

“My role at Quirk is to steer the creative, to push the team to create work that really stops people in their tracks. I love clever click bait - the quality of the concept and execution should jolt someone out of their semi-conscious scrolling,” said Jenna. 

“Growing up, I really enjoyed TV commercials, they affected me a lot.  At the same time, I felt alienated by them, I often didn’t see myself represented. So, I like to bring a thoughtful approach to the work, being mindful of who we might be speaking to, and who we might not be” continued Jenna.  

This approach ties in with the newly launched Quirk-Key Program, a paid internship committed to creating experiences and facilitating exposure to the commercial production and advertising industry for up-and-coming diverse professionals in the New York metropolitan/ tri-state area. 

Quirk’s exceptional growth over the past two years (93% revenue growth YoY, doubling of team size) has brought on several executive changes and roles, including the recent hire of Kim Svarney as managing director and the expansion of the agency into Europe.
