We spoke to Jordan to find out a little more about him!
WHEN DID YOU JOIN CLICKTHROUGH?
I joined ClickThrough on 19/7/202.
WHAT DOES YOUR ROLE AT CLICKTHROUGH INVOLVE?
To deliver creative, optimised copy for blogs, websites, email and social media.
WHAT'S YOUR BACKGROUND?
I’ve been writing across several mediums for a little over a decade, having written comic books for several publishers, screenplays for various production companies, and non-fiction content for websites. I’ve also worked in film and TV production, occupying almost every role on set at some point. (Including acting. Which I am terrible at). I’ve worked in both the UK and the US on marketing videos for a range of clients. I hold both a Bachelor's and Master's in Creative Writing, the thesis for which focused on innovation in transmedia storytelling. I played in several bands in my 20s. But we don’t talk about that.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR ROLE AT CLICKTHROUGH?
I love the creative freedom offered by my role. It’s hugely rewarding to simultaneously flex so many creative muscles, and there’s a genuine rush to blowing the embers of an idea into a fire.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT CLICKTHROUGH AND ITS CULTURE?
It’s somewhat on cliché boulevard, but even at such an early stage it’s evident that ClickThrough functions as a family. Many companies say this, but few prove it. At ClickThrough, teams lift each other up, everyone is valued, and no-one is expected to carry a burden alone. Also, they sent fruit to my house.
IF YOU HADN’T GONE INTO MARKETING, WHAT WOULD YOUR OTHER CAREER OPTION BE?
Aside from my role at ClickThrough, I continue to work as a writer, writing comics, screenplays, and story-shaped things. I am the enemy of free time! I’ve also taught creative writing to young people, so if not at ClickThrough, I’d continue with that as I believe it’s vitally important that we prize creativity.
IF YOU COULD TRADE PLACES WITH ANY OTHER PERSON FOR A WEEK, WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
If I could trade places with anyone for a week, it’d be comic book writer Brian K Vaughan, as he is the finest writer in the land. I’d do nothing all day but bask in my own brilliance. Maybe peak at some of his (my) new scripts. A close second for body swap-age would have been David Bowie. Because he was a bona fide genius.
WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?
I’m a pop culture junkie, voraciously consuming comics, videogames, movies, novels, TV shows, and anything else story-shaped. I’m a lifelong fan of punk and alternative music. A passionate vegetarian. I have an on-off relationship with Arsenal Football Club. I am mildly addicted to rehydrated Ramen noodles. I play guitar to unwind – dreamier 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’s fitting.
