This episode of Overshare is with Jaime Robinson and Lisa Clunie, founders of creative agency Joan—a company inspired by the trailblazing, take no shit Joans throughout history. It’s a fitting moniker for these two. Having spent their careers at companies like Fallon, BBH, Pereira & O'Dell, Wieden+Kennedy, and Refinery29 they set out to create a different kind of creative agency.
Host Justin Gignac (@justingignac) dives into the incredible partnership, deep friendship, and obvious overflowing love Lisa and Jaime have for each other and for the work they do. There's a lot packed into this episode. There are songs sung, honest insights on the challenges of starting a business, and a few references to Howard Hughes bottling his pee.
In this episode, you will learn that happiness and ambition can actually co-exist, and how meeting a stranger that shares your passions can unlock whole new chapters in your career.
