Jonathan Kneebone

Co-Founder, Director
The Glue Society

Jonathan Kneebone is a founder of The Glue Society - an independent creative collective working globally, now in its 26th year.

Jonathan's work deliberately blurs the line between art and commerce. Their practice encompasses everything from the direction of experiential projects, entertainment and commercials, to the creation of public installations, exhibitions and sculpture.

Creativity Magazine has defined The Glue Society as ‘the experts at things which haven’t been done before’ - and their reputation for breaking new ground includes Mars ‘Hope Reef’, Nike ‘Playground for All’, ANZ ‘GAYtms’ and HBO ‘Grave of Thrones’.

The Glue Society counts over 15 D&AD Yellow/Graphite Pencils for both concept and craft disciplines - as well as 8 Cannes Grands Prix/Titanium Awards - with over 20 projects achieving Gold Lion status.

Their work was showcased at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris, and the team are also the directors of the groundbreaking environmental artwork "Earth's Black Box" currently being installed in Tasmania (

The Glue Society - under Jonathan's leadership - has been instrumental in creating positive change within the industry, originating and supporting the D&AD initiatives - Rare, Shift Sydney and Brief to Broadcast - promoting diversity, inclusion and education.
