Christian San Jose

Over a decade of creative work has allowed him to assume many roles, from designer, illustrator, coder, creative director, general manager, to serial entrepreneur. He started his career by designing the official websites and branding for the biggest athletes and celebrities in the world, like Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, Usain Bolt, Usher, and Big Sean, to name a few. Some of his award-winning illustrations were commissioned by Adobe, Nike, Adidas, & Canva.

He has also built three of the fastest rising digital marketing agencies and technology startups in the country. Starting with Create.ph in 2011, which grew from a two-person web development boutique, into what is now a full-service creative agency composed of eighty-five professionals, after the company's acquisition by Jump Digital in April 2015. After moving on to lead the digital department of MullenLowe Group Philippines, he's gone back to his roots. Currently, he's the co-founder and Managing Director of Make, a creative technology subsidiary of Ace Saatchi & Saatchi.
