Hello. I am Jim Haven, a former creative agency founder and creative director reincarnated as a strategic and creative brand consultant and founder of Applied Daydreams. Operating as Applied Daydreams enables me to add specialists as required for each project.  

I am a champion of unexpected thinking, but my daydreams are firmly planted in outcomes. More than just a strategic consultant or an award winning creative director, I bring the experience of running a business for 14 years across two offices in two countries.   

I’m experienced at integrating strategy, branding, design and advertising. All are simply versions of telling a story with purpose to solve a problem.  

I’ve worked across diverse industries for significant brands including Starbucks, Porsche, Amazon Prime Photos, BGC3 (Bill Gates), Pacifico Beer, The Wall Street Journal, HBO, Cap Gemini, Apptio, Constellation Brands, Kraft Foods,  Avalara, Microsoft, Google, E*trade, Dickies, Jansport, Pepsi, Truvia and many others along the way. 

The harder, more complex, or never been done challenges are the projects I enjoy solving the most.
