Jon has carved a career in the design sector for almost 30 years. Primarily in the areas of food and drink with a spell in the USA at General Mills, Minneapolis. His brand design experience began with Oakwood Design in Bristol where he ran the Mattel UK account and, while in the west country, joined Blue Marlin where he ran a client-service team responsible for brands such as Warburtons, Golden Wonder and Reckitt Benkiser.
A move to London saw Jon head up Ocean Branding’s relationship with General Mills, USA. Developing cross-brand promotional campaigns and domestic cereal re-design projects.
In 2009, with an incurable desire to establish his own agency, Jon set up Threesixty. The agency mission: To deliver best-in-class food-brand packaging design with design-effectiveness built into the DNA of every project. Jon’s desire to approach projects in the right way lead him to quickly expand the senior team through the appointments of industry heavyweights Jonathan Burr (Commercial) and Chris Isted (Design).
Jon is deeply proud of Threesixty’s ten year heritage and its success in attracting clients across the corporate spectrum - from Multinationals to SME’s to Start-Ups.
Chris was that kid in class who was better at drawing than everyone else. An inquisitive mind led him into a design education and career spent in some of London’s finest design agencies.
For the best part of 30 years, Chris has been an integral part of teams who design some of the world’s most famous brands; from Nestlé, Cadbury and Mars to Grand Marnier, Henessy, Kronenbourg and more.
His professional design career began at Cleassens International, developing labels and bottle structures for the world’s best-loved beer and spirit brands. A move to Wagstaffs introduced Chris to the food category where he began to hone his design philosophy for delivering packaging with outstanding stand out.
While at Stocks Austin Sice (SAS), Chris was instrumental in helping establish independent agency Ocean Design - made up of SAS’s packaging design team. Ocean carved a niche in the cereal sector working on UK domestic and global cereal brands owned by Cereal Partners Worldwide (CPW), CPUK and General Mills, USA.
Chris has a very clear set of design principals that he uses to guide projects and Threesixty's design team. To drive sales both online and at a physical retail fixture, packaging must: Be Seen, Be Loved and Be Understood. These principals are manifest in Threesixty’s portfolio and best demonstrated by our start-up projects where his vision delivers design icons that truly disrupt the category. In 2011 Chris joined Jon at Threesixty as a board member and Creative Director.
