Our Story

A multi-award winning international production company with offices in LA and London. Storytelling at its best.

Ulf Johansson, the sole director at Smith & Jones, is a master storyteller, creating beautifully crafted tales that deliver genuine emotional connections with the audience.

Oscar Nominated Philippa Smith is our founder and exec producer who works with Ulf as a team, delivering campaigns that stand out from the crowd with a visual language, that both agency and client can call their own.

Well known for our unique style and an obsession to detail, we pride ourselves on working collaboratively with agency, client and crew, from Oscar and BAFTA winners to the masters of post production.

We have been fortunate to work with some of the most talented creatives and world’s most interesting clients including Absolut Vodka, Budweiser, Coca Cola, Diesel, Dr Pepper, KFC, Levi’s, Mountain Dew, Nike, Old Spice, Skittles, Snickers and Volvo to name but a few.

We firmly believe that one is only as good as one’s last project, and that the portfolio of work should speak for itself.

We strive to collaborate with talented partners whilst enjoying the journey.

Now that’s a lot of narrative for a company that likes to let the work do all the talking. As someone wise once said ‘a picture speaks a thousand words’, so we invite you to take a peek at our work and hope to hear from you.
