"'If they wanted us all to drive at sixty, why do they put one hundred and eighty on the clock' (Lemmy). This is the best way I can describe Jeremy Hancock. He has what it takes to make an impossible vision. Possible. Gloves off."
Ben Facey, Marketing Director XYZ Networks Australia.
Let’s kick off our shoes, wipe ‘em on the floor and say one thing straight up. Jeremy Hancock, skater / surfer turned entrepreneur and award-winning creative, has a skill set you don’t often strike. For one thing, it revolves 360 degrees: it’s online, it’s TV and it’s print. He’s behind the camera, he’s writing scripts, he’s in the editing suite and he’s in the boardroom. It’s big brand and it’s commercial. Think an iconic client list over 15 yrs like Sony Entertainment, MTV, SBS, The ABC, Triple J & Channel V. But, at its deepest core, Jeremy’s work is the manipulation and celebration of pop culture. By a passionate, visionary, world-class Creative with a network of industry talent that makes anything possible.
Think influential campaigns for Channel [V], MTV, Insight, General Pants and Fuel TV. He has been the founding partner and creative director of 3 successful agencies and Creative Director of XYZ networks Australia over seeing 4 Music Television channels. Jeremy makes you believe. Like he makes his staff believe. Like he makes his audience believe.

"Every now and then you meet a charming but very brash human who you don't quiet understand. You listen and you try to rationalise. But basically you make a decision that this guy is a lunatic. Right up until some other clever person decides to take the risk on this dashing man and you end up with egg all over your face and all you can do is try ... try to catch up. I feel sorry for the brand that doesn't listen to this lunatic, he knows what makes good noise"
