If you happen to see a clever marketing scheme in the city, there is a good chance that Jon Quinn and ICS Creative Agency are behind it. Though Jon likes to slide under the radar on a day to day basis, he is also king of hamming it up. Saint John is lucky to have this unique energy leading us in the community.
Jon is the Director of PR and Social Media for ICS Creative Agency on King Street. ICS has recently gone through a major office renovation, and invites anyone interested to stop by up and say hi. ICS Creative Agency has gained respect as a creative team and was recently awarded the Association of Marketing & Communication Professionals award for 'Best Event Marketing Video' for their Saint John Sea Dogs 'Draw A Line' campaign video.
Let's get to know Jon…
Where were you born/Where are you from?
I was born in Saint John, NB and lived the first 18 years of my life in Quispamsis.
How long have you been a part of the uptown scene?
I joined the Uptown scene in the fall of 2011 when I started working at ICS Creative Agency. The following year my girlfriend (now wife) and I moved Uptown.
Name one or two people who you look to for inspiration?
My mother (Marilyn) and sister (Kelly) are two very strong sources of inspiration for me. They support me and keep me grounded during tough times all while taking on their own challenges in stride with style and grace.
Most guilty pleasure?
Having a real 'me' day at Element5. A haircut comes with a five minute massage, two shampoos and a facial mist (still not sure what that does?) and when it's over they give you a chocolate and it's like, I feel like I should be giving you the chocolate because I feel so on point right now.
What is your Uptown Insider Tip?
Courtside Millrats seats are the best bang for your buck in the city. Does it get any better than chirping players and refs with an Alpine in your hand with the peace of mind of knowing they *probably* won't hit you? No.
