Kyle Jones has come aboard Kansas City-based agency Barkley as group creative director in charge of the Applebee’s account.

Jones joins Barkley from Venables Bell & Partners in San Francisco, where he worked on Audi and Reebok. He’s perhaps best known as the group creative director at Dallas agency TracyLocke who helped create the Simpsons Kwik-e-Marts for 7-Eleven, when 7-Elevens became Kwik-e-Marts to promote The Simpsons Movie.
“Kyle has a lot of experience convincing big, seemingly traditional clients to do innovative, creative work,” said Jason Elm, executive creative director at Barkley. “Coming up with a great idea is the easy part these days. The real challenge is selling it in and flawlessly producing it. Kyle has a track record of doing just that.”
Prior to his time at Venables Bell, Jones worked on the Microsoft, Dominos, and Kraft accounts at CP+B. He has won multiple Cannes Lions and One Show Pencils.
