Senior Copywriter, Wieden + Kennedy Amsterdam
Jake Barnes is a writer, who also happens to be dyslexic. From New Zealand, he now lives and works at Wieden + Kennedy Amsterdam. In between asking himself “why on earth did I become a writer?” and proofreading everything a billion times, he’s made work for brands the likes of Nike, Montblanc, Instagram, Ray-Ban and more. Some of which have been recognised by D&AD, Cannes, LIAs, Webby’s and others. He also used to go to a bar back in Auckland where Jacinda Ardern would DJ. True story.
