“We’re very excited to announce that Jason Chappelle has joined Aspect as our new Executive Creative Director,” Feldman and Braunstein said. “He has years of experience working with some of the top creative agencies in Hollywood, and has contributed to such recent, high profile film campaigns as those for Bohemian Rhapsody, Deadpool 2, and Game Night. Most importantly, he adds another strong creative voice to Aspect, and will also help us expand our services to a broader client base. We’re super stoked about him joining our team – and we’re delighted he is no longer one of our toughest competitors!”
Adds Chappelle, ““I’ve long been a fan of Aspect’s work, so when Nati and Lisa offered me the chance to join them and help build their future, it was something I couldn’t pass up. I’ve always retained a tremendous respect for Aspect’s creativity. As I now transition from ‘competitor’ to ‘collaborator,’ I couldn’t be more excited to start this new chapter of my career, working in-house with Nati, Lisa, and the entire Aspect team.”
