New hire: Jonathan Richards, Digital Director
December 17, 2014
DNX is putting its digital offering front and centre with senior hire, Jonathan Richards, as Digital Director. Jonathan’s remit is to put the user at the heart of all DNX’s digital output, and ensure that our clients’ digital strategy has a direct effect on their sales, awareness, and advocacy.
Jonathan started his creative life as a copywriter, before becoming an award-winning Creative Director and running the digital and creative teams for several large agencies. He has worked across diverse sectors producing digital solutions – from websites, to apps and complex CMS platforms – for diverse B2B and B2C brands including Nando’s, the BBC’s relocation to Salford, MI5 and MI6 (even Her Majesty’s Security Services need marketing), Virgin Media, Lastminute.com, Land Rover, Mazda and Boots.
Jonathan’s goal as Digital Director with DNX is to foster a culture that nurtures big digital ideas, that work across all platforms, with seamless delivery. Whether a mobile app, a global CMS or an attention-grabbing digital event, it’s about making technology feel accessible, inspiring and human. The user must be kept at the heart of everything.
Jonathan is a member of the Whisky Society and is partial to a wee dram of single cask whisky. In a few spare moments he is also spectacularly failing to learn how to play golf.
