HearSay with Jason

When it comes to a “can do” attitude, no one epitomizes that more than HenkinSchultz’s Jason Jellis. As a partner at HS, he not only helps guide the ship, he builds it, delivers it and reinvents it.

As HS celebrates 31 years in business, we sat down with Jason to hear his thoughts on the past three decades and grand visions looking ahead.

What are some of your most memorable projects?

I have been fortunate enough to work on so many great projects at HS. Using my experience in wide format printing, I get the opportunity to tackle some really grand projects.

Whether it’s building corporate event stage backdrops, art installations in Las Vegas, or a 30-foot-tall birthday cake on the front of our building, every project is an adventure and I always look forward to the next one.

Tell us about the importance of problem solving.

We are all problem solvers at HS. Every person has a unique set of skills that provides solutions to our clients. That’s just what we do. We find new ways to creatively approach each challenge and project. My mantra is, “If you don’t try to do something, you will never do anything.”

What brings you joy in your day to day responsibilities?

The biggest joy that keeps me going is the entire design, printing and installation process. I love tackling the big picture and meeting with a client about whatever project or problem they have-  and then digging into a solution.

Working back and forth with a client until something is done just right, then stepping back to look at a finished product is very rewarding. To look back and say, “We did that!” is a great feeling.

Reflecting back upon 20 years at HS and 31 as a company

While Jason is always one of the busiest people inside and outside of the office, his workload never hinders him from being positive.

“One thing that has stayed the same is the great people we get to work with everyday,” says Jellis. “It’s just good to work with good people.”

HearSay with Doug – Exploration and Energy

Creative Director Doug Murano knows a thing or two about storytelling. At HenkinSchultz, and as an accomplished writer and publisher, he explores new chapters every day and brings that experience to HS and our clients. What originally attracted you to the business of advertising and your role as Creative Director? I’m a big fan of the phrase, “Go where the energy is.” It prepares you to take chances   and end up in unexpected places. That’s another way of saying I just kind of fell into the world of marketing. Back in grad school, I failed to secure a teaching…

HearSay with Anne Allen

Like most people, Anne Allen wasn’t sure what she wanted to be when she grew up. Today, as Director of Client Services for HenkinSchultz, you could say she is the adult in the room when juggling her clients' expectations and the work required of the HS team. But that doesn’t stop her from bringing her signature fun, playful attitude to the office. What path did you take to enter the business of advertising and marketing?  I wasn't completely sure what I wanted to do for a career, but I knew I liked to write and I liked working with people.…
