The Artistic Puppy Joins Divining Point
We are excited to announce that Jon Taylor, the “Artistic Puppy”, has joined Divining Point as Creative Director. Jon brings his creative eye and visual storytelling talents to our full service agency, thereby giving our clients more options for engaging design, photography and videography.
Prior to joining Divining Point, Jon was the CEO of Artistic Puppy, a photography and marketing agency based in the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska. For 11 years, Jon and his team provided world class creative and marketing strategy for businesses across multiple industries. His clients included companies in fashion, outdoor apparel, tourism, hospitality, oil and gas, and public sector agencies. Artistic Puppy has a reputation for great service and dramatic media, and we are thrilled to incorporate his high standards into our firm.
Prior to running Artistic Puppy, Jon held positions as the Director of Marketing and Development for Alaska Christian College, the co-founder of the comedy series “The Doug and Jon Show”, and Director of Creative Development for RHM Inc. He earned his chops in various other creative roles that challenged him to capture stunning photography and video in harsh environments. Over time he broadened his skills to include graphic design, ad copy, and front-end web design.
His philosophy for marketing fits firmly into Divining Point’s core values. The power of brand and a mandate for excellence are the foundations for a successful business that generates loyal clients. He approaches every creative project with the goal to evoke emotion in the heart of the observer. To Jon, it’s not enough to create a “good design”. He seeks to motivate people to respond with passion, which in turn produces results.
Jon currently divides his time between Austin, TX and back home in Kenai, Alaska, which extends the reach of Divining Point’s services. When he’s not behind the camera or editing video, he can be found playing the drums, exploring new travel adventures, and cracking corny jokes.
