Journeys partners with Karl Jacobs as new Creative Ambassador.

On March 31, 2022, Journeys announced a partnership with the wildly popular content creator and gamer, Karl Jacobs. As the new Journeys Creative Ambassador, Karl will collaborate with the team to plan and create content relevant to the gaming world. He may be the new kid on the Journeys block, but Karl is well versed in the gaming, social, and even fashion landscapes. He gained his following after being introduced as a part of MrBeast’s talent team and grew quickly into the beloved creator, streamer, and podcaster he is today. With more than 28 million followers across platforms, Karl plans to use his relatable humor, understanding of the audience, and gaming skills to help grow awareness about the Journeys brand.

“He (Karl Jacobs) will play an integral role in our strategic approach to introducing ourselves and engaging with the gaming community in an authentic and meaningful way,” said Kari Irons, SVP of marketing at Journeys, in a statement. “Gaming is fueling youth culture right now and we know we need to earn our place and build trust with the community first. We are ecstatic for the value and expertise Karl brings in guiding us through this and also for our partnership with gaming firm Loaded in connecting us to creators and content partners like Karl, who share our core values and want to build long-lasting partnerships and connections.”

“As the newly appointed Creative Ambassador for Journeys, I’m excited to combine my love for gaming, creativity, and fashion to introduce a new generation of gamers and people in general to the brand,” said Karl Jacobs.
