Jonathan Ford

Founding Partner & Group Creative Director


Over the course of more than three decades, my vision for Pearlfisher was as clear then as it is now: to continually further creative standards through provocative thinking and by boldly challenging the status quo.

Always pushing myself and others to stretch further, I’m proud to say we’ve built some of world’s best-known and loved brands including Cadbury Dairy Milk, Green & Black’s, Waitrose, Target, Wolfgang Puck, Jamie Oliver, Help Remedies, and Jim Beam – while gaining us countless Design Effectiveness Awards and a much coveted Gold Cannes Lion along the way.

Beyond our success stories, I invest in brands, businesses, and charitable initiatives driving positive change, all while mentoring creative entrepreneurs and nurturing the potential of the next generation.
