Now that it’s been, say, six months or so since JWT ex-pats Ty Montague and Rosemarie Ryan officially introduced Co: to the world, the agency (or “story-led innovation collective” as they say) has added Jacob Styburski as “chief collaborator.” Styburski arrives from frog design, where he was an account director for three years. Prior to that, the new collaborator spent a few years as a “six sigma design black belt” and a director, user experience design for clients such as Motorola and AT&T Mobility, respectively.
His new role calls for him to lead innovation teams in the design of branded products, services and experiences for Co clients and Styburski owns process and coordination of talent and resources as well. In a statement, Montague says, “Collaboration lies at the core of our model and Jacob’s experience running multi-disciplinary teams at frog design will be invaluable as we continue to grow and develop. Plus, he’s a former marine so he’s really hard to argue with.”
