Jon Wiltshire founded Space66 in December 2006, drawing upon three decades’ experience in advertising production to create a business that helps agencies and brands see through the smoke and mirrors of digital production. Our drive to get ever closer to the brief led Space66 to set up shop within a number of significant advertising agencies, creating in house digital production units.
After many years orchestrating digital production on behalf of these organisations, Space66 is taking this model direct to all, redefining the way that brands, agencies and production facilities work together – delivered via our unique Colocated Digital Production model.
The Space66 model is about providing a team that stands shoulder to shoulder with brand or agency, bringing a robust repertoire of digital production skills to bear in the delivery of a wide variety of assets and content. We provide support for campaigns and communications at scale and across multiple channels and markets. Our offering isn’t about production that’s piled high and sold cheap. We believe that production isn’t a commodity, it is an essential element of the marketing mix and one that should be elevated to work alongside the experts within a brand’s marketing department – not hidden away behind closed doors.
Our mission? To be the preferred choice of production partner for the advertising and marketing community.
Jon entered the creative production business back in 1979 as an illustrator for a large independent studio and quickly came to the conclusion that taking the brief direct from the client was the best approach.
After setting up internal production facilities for many ad agencies inc. BBH, Atomic, Jack Morton, M&C Saatchi and TBWA - for whom he and a partner created E-Graphics in 2003 - Jon launched Space66 in December 2006 to help creative agencies navigate the smoke and mirrors that shrouds digital production.

Coming from a long line of ad men, an introduction to Jon Wiltshire led to Chris joining Space66’s Addictive Pixel team colocated within Bartle Bogle Hegarty, London.
Chris soon excelled in the fast-paced world of digital production. Managing the team from within the client’s head office represented the most efficient production process, which was then adopted further afield, seeing Space66 grow into other agencies and brands.
