Introducing our MD...

Hola! My name's Jason Vickers and I am the founder of Flying Saucer and also a part time bandido!

From a young age I always enjoyed being artistic, coming up with Heath Robinson-esque creations and wowing people with my smile-inducing (or grimace-inducing) puns. Throughout my early years I was inspired by advertising and my career began in regional press as a Sales Representative for Archant. Following this, I worked in television advertising at ITV before taking up the challenge of business development for a couple of regional marketing agencies.

It was always my aim to have my own agency and thirteen years ago Flying Saucer was born. It's the best thing I've ever done. Taking that leap of faith into the unknown armed with only ambition, some money in my pocket and a couple of trusty tools was extremely daunting, but I've never looked back. It hasn't all been plain sailing and creative utopia though; it's been a hard slog. But I wouldn't have changed a thing along the way. Apart from our logo, I've changed that quite a few times now, much to the frustration of our Creative Director. But I'm happy with our current brand…for now!

The thing I'm most proud of, however, is our dedicated and loyal team. All of whom bring great spirit, enthusiasm, laughter and an excellent work ethic to the business. I never take any of that for granted.

When I'm not coming up with terrible puns and ground-breaking ideas for our clients, I can be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen at home. I love experimenting with culinary concoctions to try out on the family, before walking off the gluttony with our two furry and mischievous friends; Annie and Jasper.

2015 looks set to be another exciting year for Flying Saucer and, as always, I can't wait to enjoy the journey.
