Jason Perelson

Creative Director at ZOO group
Canberra, Australia


First and foremost, a ginger. But as a strategic Creative, Jason works with a wide variety of clients to concept and implement strategic, measurable, brand campaigns. Integrated marketing is key in delving into the strategic insights for a brand, and campaigns, and his role revolves around developing the link between the digital space as well as the off-site creative experience, whether across web, social, mobile, out-of-home or above the line "traditional media". Even while being ginger.

This encompasses a great deal of Digitally focused insight and strategic thinking to encompass innovative and creative solutions to marketing and communication problems through creative use of ginger magics, digital communications, and traditional media.

A trained actor, mentored by the late Broadway and West End actress, Diane Todd, Jason is a creative scriptwriter, actor and director. These tools, coupled with his Bachelor of Arts Degree specializing in all forms of media, including Radio, Television and Film, allows him to truly grasp the full spectrum of broadcasting, media and advertising but he still can't work out how to get a tan.
