We spoke to Jordan to find out more about him!
WHEN DID YOU JOIN CLICKTHROUGH?
I joined ClickThrough on 7/19/202.
WHAT IS YOUR ROLE AT CLICKTHROUGH?
To provide creative and optimized copy for blogs, websites, emails and social media.
WHAT ARE YOUR ORIGINS?
I’ve been writing in multiple mediums for a little over a decade, writing comics for multiple publishers, screenplays for various production companies, and non-fictional content for websites. I have also worked in film and television production, taking on almost every role on set at some point. (Including acting. Which I suck at). I have worked in the UK and USA on marketing videos for a range of clients. I hold a license and a master’s degree in creative writing, whose thesis focused on innovation in transmedia storytelling. I played in several bands in my twenties. But we’re not talking about that.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT YOUR ROLE AT CLICKTHROUGH?
I like the creative freedom offered by my role. It’s extremely rewarding to flex so many creative muscles simultaneously, and there’s a real rush in blowing the embers of an idea into a fire.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT CLICKTHROUGH AND ITS CULTURE?
It’s kind of on Cliché Boulevard, but even at such an early stage it’s obvious that ClickThrough is operating like family. Many companies say it, but few prove it. At ClickThrough, teams help each other, everyone is valued and no one is expected to carry a burden alone. In addition, they sent fruit to my house.
IF YOU ARE NOT IN MARKETING, WHAT WOULD YOUR OTHER CAREER OPTION BE?
In addition to my role at ClickThrough, I continue to work as a writer, writing comics, screenplays and stuff in story form. I am the enemy of free time! I have also taught creative writing to young people so if not at ClickThrough I would continue with that because I think it is vitally important that we value creativity.
IF YOU CAN EXCHANGE YOUR PLACE WITH ANOTHER PERSON FOR A WEEK, WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
If I could swap places with anyone for a week, it would be comic book writer Brian K Vaughan because he’s the best writer in the country. I wouldn’t be doing anything all day but enjoying my own glow. Maybe a peak at some of his (my) new scripts. David Bowie is said to have closely followed the age of the body swap. Because he was a real genius.
WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR FREE TIME?
I’m a pop culture junkie, I voraciously consume comics, video games, movies, novels, TV shows, and anything that has a story. I have been a lifelong fan of punk and alternative music. A passionate vegetarian. I have an intermittent relationship with Arsenal Football Club. I’m slightly addicted to rehydrated ramen noodles. I play the guitar to relax – the more dreamy the better. I write comics. I fuel my days with an amount of caffeine that is best described as “reckless”. Probably. I live with my wife and two daughters. Friends call us the Adams family. It is appropriate.
