Jye Smith circa 2019

 

INDEPENDANT, CONSULTANT & creative/strategist specialising in brand, communications & ideation.

I’ve been lucky enough to spend nearly 15 years working with consultancies and creative agencies through-out Asia Pacific which has allowed me to meet and work with exceptionally diverse teams and individuals.

With a sincere interest in human behavior and business culture, I know how difficult it can be to bring ideas to life. From creative to communications, to large scale corporate innovation to launching start-ups – all have their challenges with teams and partners.

I currently consult to select agencies including Redengine SCC, Disruptor’s Inc, and WE Buchan.
