Merchandise Marketing Graduate Jacob Vargas and FIDM Visual Communciations Alumna Jordan Douglas have launched the creative consulting agency, Jacob X Jordan. The duo, who have a background in styling, fashion PR, marketing, and special event production, is setting out to collaborate with brands and personalities in new and innovative ways. They have already worked on a music video for Tyga, with the L.A.B. in Orange County, and with emerging recording artist Wes Period.
"My favorite part about working with Jordan is that I get to work with my best friend everyday," Jacob says. "In high school we were in fashion ROP together, I produced my first fashion show with her, we got accepted to FIDM together, and she has always been the creative hand in the projects I have produced in the industry. Our individual point-of-views adds up to a better final product."quot; Jordan adds: "It's easier to succeed when you have a business partner pushing for you to do your best."
They want Jacob X Jordan to be a network that connects brands and influencers to unique creatives. "We want to continue to produce projects that allow us to collaborate with creative people and find innovative ways to presenting product to consumers," Jacob says. "One of the ways we would like to do this is by producing JXJ events that curates our favorite music artists, brands and other creative arts."
Jordan adds that, "I see the future of Jacob X Jordan as a successful worldwide business and a well-known collaborative community of the fashion and entertainment worlds that continues to inspire other creatives to connect and create."
