President, Creative Director
Innovative. Collaborative. Slightly irreverent. These words describe David Jensen, the creative force behind JDA. Dave has spent the last 25 years taking JDA to the forefront of digital marketing and retail-ready design. His ability to articulate marketing goals and insights into ground-breaking creative make JDA the first choice with a growing roster of clients, from startups to Fortune 500 brands.
In his personal life and his professional life, Dave has a longstanding passion for consumer electronics. Early on, Dave championed digital design and the Apple platform to go beyond what was possible with traditional design tools, evolving the agency naturally from a focus on print media to today’s omnichannel media.
That nimble thinking keeps JDA pushing forward and ensures that great ideas translate into great execution. In fact, it inspires some of his best work: “There’s always more than one way to solve a problem—I get to re-invent the wheel every day.”
