About Us

The start of a beautiful friendship…

The Pitch

Here’s what we’d tell you in an elevator: We capture attention with unique, “un-boring” content to help you increase revenue with exceptional branding, powerful advertising, and effective marketing.  We’ll help you build the platform and execute next steps to engage with your audience.

Our Four Essentials:

Attractive
Understood
Wanted
Legendary

All that we do is filtered through (what we call) our Four Essentials.  The last thing we want is to provide a solution that doesn’t help a business position themselves well to get results through their marketing efforts.

Our Story

We get a lot of questions about our name.  We get it.  Here’s the story…

Once

Upon a Time…

It was the summer of 2012 when the founders of Paper Jacket, John and Jeremy Hicks, were enjoying some espresso, discussing how they should one day begin a company that combined their strengths of marketing, experience, and passion.

Many ideas were tossed around, until finally they realized that this journey was nothing new. They had always been thinking outside the box and doing creative stuff since they were kids. One memory, in particular, was when on a rainy day John and Jeremy decided to do something…a little unorthodox…

Out of the blue, John and Jeremy picked up a bunch of old newspaper and furiously began folding, taping and cutting (making a huge mess that “Mother” did not appreciate). Little did they know that what he was constructing was an omen of what was to come for the two brothers! After some time, Jeremy was dressed in his very own, custom-tailored suit. Only it was a suit–pants, tie, and jacket–that was made completely out of paper.

Behold: the original “Paper Jacket.”
It was a sign that the Hicks brothers would one day be working together to push the boundaries of creativity, strategy, and fun that is now known as Paper Jacket Marketing.
