Creative Producer - Pleo Job App

Daiki Shinomiya

Human-centric producer who loves solving creative problems and directing ambitious projects.


The story

Film director, designer, strategist and behavioural science researcher. All in one ambitious package. My in-depth understanding of the creative process, its delivery, and the people behind it makes me an effective creative producer.


As a Japanese creative growing up in Thailand and now living in the UK, my international and multicultural background enables me to seamlessly integrate with and understand people, regardless of who and where they are. By attending a non-arts university, I do not have a traditional creative background in the industry - instead, while pursuing a BSc degree, I gained experience independently by collaborating with clients and launching my own projects to upskill emerging creatives around the world. 

Design Stack:

Figma, Sketch, DaVinci Resolve, Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Xd


Why I am a good fit

I’m a multidisciplinary creative, behavioural science researcher and strategist with experience working alongside startups across three continents. As a Creative Producer, I would be able to seamlessly integrate my in-depth understanding of the creative process with my experience generating and converting leads from industry leaders – ultimately producing creative campaigns that turn heads and leave a lasting mark.

Fluent Designer

Having grown up using Adobe before Creative Cloud existed and Figma since its public release, design software is second nature to me.


Short film director and videographer

My filmmaking journey has transitioned from filming sports and live events to narrative shorts. Combined with my psychology and music background, I know how to get the right shot when I’m behind the camera, and how to lead creatives to produce their best work when I’m in the director’s chair. 

My work focuses on telling stories, big and small, that leave a lasting impact.

Director | Producer | Editor | Colorist

I am currently directing, producing and editing an independent short film from scratch, exploring the marks we leave on each other’s lives.


We surpassed our £1000 crowdfunding goal in 48 hours and finished at 258%. We are in the post-prodduction process, and the film is set to release in early July.

I secured venues such as UK’s Best Wedding Venue of 2020/2021 for the film (Condé Nast Johansens Winner).

Media Executive / Videographer

I oversaw media production for all sports on campus and created the 2019-2020 year recap video with no budget. 

I blended commercial and cinematic filmmaking to produce this video, generating 20,000 organic impressions with no ad spend. 

Sports videography has trained me to identify the right moments to shoot in a live setting, ideal for documentary-style filmmaking and capturing raw emotions.
