Welcome!

Hey, I’m Jeff Small! The very same Jeff Small who works as Creative Technologist and Digital Business Manager for The Navy Partnership, a WPP “supergroup” of agencies that service the United States Navy’s advertising and marketing efforts. In this role I’m responsible for overseeing and maintaining all of the United States Navy’s digital advertising platforms. My “domain” includes Navy.com, the Navy’s social media properties, their digital media, and leads management systems. I’m also chiefly responsible for bringing digital innovation to the greatest Navy to ever sail the oceans of the world. Not a bad gig for a former Aviation Ordinanceman who began his career humping bombs and missiles on A-6 Intruders in the VA-165 Boomers. 

I’ve worked in advertising for over 25 years, primarily in digital advertising. I began my career as a programmer and have worked my way through world-class agencies with responsibilities such as Senior Digital Strategist, Lead Technology Director, and Senior Partner/Director of Creative Technology. I’ve spent most of my professional life working hand-in-hand with some of the most creative people in advertising and have loved every minute of it. 

Take a look around, check out some of my favorite work, soak in some of my passions… and enjoy the ride!

In an organization steeped in tradition, few resonate as deeply as the Midshipmen March to the Stadium, the annual tradition of marching United States Naval Academy Midshipmen to take their place inside the stadium for the game. It’s a spectacular sight and nothing galvanizes the worldwide Navy audience faster than the first appearance of the …

A quick note

Words and pictures by me. Photos were all taken at various locations aboard ships, in candy shops and amusement parks, at comic conventions, hovering over desks, etc. trying to capture anything and anyplace that catches my fancy. Everything you see here was shot with an iPhone 6. No special app, just the camera. I do a little Photoshop bullshit for the fun stuff like tilt shifts and color adjustments, but beyond that, it’s just stuff I’ve spontaneously shot with a cell phone. Enjoy!

I mean, c’mon… we both know you can reach me all kinds of ways. There’s no magic here.

This is 2017, I’m not putting a form on my site or trying some convoluted way to get you to hit me up. I live in Atlanta and work at VML, I’m all over Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Facebook (but really, I do keep that facebook shit on privacy lock-down) and even sometimes Snapchat. I’ve even got  an oldschool email address if you wanna go all retro. 

You can also throw up a batsignal… just kidding, I don’t even know how that’d work… but it sounds awesome.
