Jacob Barden

Jacob, commonly known as Jake to the fringe team, joined in Summer 2022, working with us to gain knowledge in the creative industries & production. He is currently studying Creative Media Production & Technology (Art and Creative Media) at Folkestone College, in his final year with an architecture and interior design focus.

Jake has lived in Folkestone since birth but plans to move away while at university before returning to his home town to pursue a career in design and planning.

As an early teen Jake started as a cadet at Kent (Marine) Cadet Force believing a career in the military was what he wanted to do. During the Coronavirus outbreak Jake was in his final year at school which was cut short due to the first Lockdown, unaware of what he wanted to do after school he took inspiration from a friend's parents who own an Architecture firm and decided to pursue this by joining an art and design course.

K(M)CF also organise an annual military show which Jake is involved in, eventually just involved within the show due to work commitments. This is where his passion for organising and producing events started.
