POOL is a coalition of integrated communicators. We call ourselves Brand Lifeguards. Charged with watching out for the best interests of our clients’ businesses, we are strategic thinkers, designers, writers, digital strategists and media specialists. We keep our structure small but our ideas large. We offer integrated branding, social and digital strategy development and design, content development and execution.
POOL was one of the first branding companies to create a structure that gleans the best possible talent in every relevant discipline from virtually anywhere in the world. At the center of the POOL are the creative principals who guide and direct the vision for your brand.

"I had the great privilege to work with Jayne for many years when we were both at Ogilvy. Her problem solving skills are second to none. She is passionate about every aspect of her work, and is not only a masterfully creative mind, but also a great consensus builder, eager to share and teach others and an excellent representative and advocate for her team and agency. Jayne has self-confidence, intelligence, assertiveness (not aggression) and a wonderful sense of humor.
She works well under pressure and her staff at Pool know they can depend on her and turn to her for help and support as they have the highest regard for her and her sensibilities. Not only do the people at the agency love working with her, but her clients adore her as well. She takes her work very seriously but manages to make it look effortless and fun. I eagerly welcome the day when I will have the good fortune to work with her again."
- David Cohen, Digital Creative Director at ADT Security Systems
"As an independent writer, I have enjoyed and been enriched by my 10 years of working for and with Jayne. As a proprietor/ECD of her own agency, Pool, she is a fearless creative leader with a warm, fun inspiring vibe. She is enthusiastic, genuine, with an innovative mind. She can also synchronize a large team of talents of many disciplines. She is always tapped into what’s happening in the culture and how a demographic is feeling… and brings those fresh insights into her size XXL ideas. Working with Jayne as a freelance partner at agencies, I love that she brings a savvy, positive, attitude to even the most challenging assignment and whips together our kickass ideas in social, content and multi-touchpoint communications with killer design, ease and elegance. She is a smart strategic thinker, a creative force and she’s fun!"
- Dallas Itzen, CD/Copywriter Extraordinaire
