JEAN is a full service creative and branding agency that writes, directs, and produces commercials, promos, network branding, integrated marketing, print and viral content. It’s made up of these 3 people:
Eric is a seasoned Director who got his start over the course of a long and successful career at MTV. During his time there, he wrote and directed tons of award winning spots and campaigns for the channel. He did it long enough to work with the young, hot Britney Spears as well as the older, shaved head, not as hot Britney Spears. In addition to directing spots, Eric also served as Editorial Director where he played an integral role in several channel re-designs and brand initiatives. Eric left MTV to start up JEAN with a few friends who knew they could take their promo and branding skills they had at MTV and do something actually useful with them. Shockingly, it seems to be working out. Also, he likes pretzels.
Natalie, aka Nat can write just about anything as long as that anything is something funny. The reason Nat is so good at writing is because she hates a lot of stuff and when you hate a lot of stuff you only let the best stuff live. Nat’s writing is distinct, sharp and smells like hands. She got her start in advertising at McCann, eventually moved to MTV where she wrote all sorts of memorable on-air promo campaigns and then moved on to form JEAN, a boutique creative agency that churns out all sorts of content for a variety of broadcast networks including FX, TBS, TNT, Disney, IFC and many others. On top of running one of the best creative agencies in cable promos, Nat also has a successful greeting card company called Uncooked. Need a slightly inappropriate card for a birthday or anniversary? Uncooked is your card company and Nat is the voice behind it.
Armand is a tall man with a strong jaw and a strong background in Art Direction and Illustration. He began his career working as an Art Director at McCann Erickson in New York on accounts such as Verizon, Black & Decker, Avis, Wendys and Coca Cola. On the very day he was promoted to VP, he quit and asked MTV to hire him as a writer/ director in the on air promos department. And so they did. After 4 years of creating some of the most memorable and award winning work for the channel (at least he thinks it is) he left to start JEAN Productions with a couple of weirdos who may or may not also have bios on this page. Armand now enjoys the good life living in Brooklyn with his beautiful wife and daughter. In addition to being an owner at JEAN Productions, Armand runs, co-owns and is the head illustrator at Uncooked Inc, a greeting card and animation company he started with his wife Natalie in 2004.
