Jill’s a passionate believer in the transformative power of well-conceived and smartly designed digital experiences.

Previously she was an Executive Creative Director at R/GA, and a key player behind the design of the Nike+ platform, which was named “Campaign of the Decade” by the One Club and Adweek.
