Jesse Brihn is an award-winning multidisciplinary producer who’s built a career on traditional advertising told in nontraditional ways. His career started in San Francisco, working on short films. Intrigued by the challenges advertising posed, he joined Goodby, Silverstein and Partners before moving to TBWAChiatDay and later Cutwater, where he produced some of the earliest award-winning viral films for Ray-Ban, in addition to working on clients including Adidas, Motorola and Jeep.
In 2007, Jesse moved to New York City to work in Content and Development at BBDO, where he produced multiple large-scale transmedia productions including Starbucks/Product (RED) “Love Project,” which received a Guinness Book of World Records title and Save The Children “Every Beat Matters” campaign, which inspired Grammy-winning artists OneRepublic and their hit single “Feel Again”. Other notable clients he worked with at BBDO include The American Red Cross, FedEx and HBO, among others.
In 2013, Jesse was recruited to run production on the Nike Jordan brand account at Wieden+Kennedy. While at W+K he produced the “Re2pect” campaign, which won a Titanium Grand Prix. He also produced Instagram’s first product-sponsored web series for Gap, as well as the initial episodes of Delta Air Lines’ “Innovation Class” content series.
At Droga5, Jesse has been leading campaigns for clients including Hennessy, Google, Johnsonville and Air Wick. Most recently, he produced the Hennessy V.S.O.P film “Harmony. Mastered from Chaos”.
