Jeff Boardman has a diverse background working with brands, the arts, cultural organisations and data specialists. His journey began within the creative industries at the forefront of guerrilla media. As Creative Director and customer insight specialist for brands he has seen all aspects of the media, insight, marketing, advertising and PR business, allowing him to tell stories with clear strategic approach.
Mixing shrewd customer insight with engagement ideas has seen him run projects with Tate, Science Museum, FACT, Liverpool Biennial, National Museums Liverpool, Liverpool Vision and the International Festival of Business.
His love of the arts led Jeff to stage Banksy’s first show in London, commission to create an installation at Tate Tanks and bring to life the much-celebrated ‘Mai68’ show at the Hayward Gallery’s project space.
Not averse to a challenge and being an admirer of well-known brands allowed him to lead a range of engagement projects for Tango, Red Bull, Diesel, Ben Sherman and Topman and win an industry awards for Converse by spearheading their music, festival, arts and blogger programmes.
Prior to founding BUREAU, Jeff was the Creative Director for arts data specialist Purple Seven and consultant to Edwina Dunn and Clive Humby.
