My advertising adventure began at Chiat Day, the US agencies UK shop. After a two year spell as a junior art director I moved to Saatchi & Saatchi, arriving there in the middle of, some would say, a golden period. Great ads were everywhere, even in the bins (pre-recycling)
Saatchi's was always an inspiring environment for me, with plenty of iconic brands to work on, including the Army, Carlsberg, Hewlett Packard, Visa, Toyota, Manfrotto, Sony, Mr Kipling, Amplifon, Commission for Racial Equality, Salvation Army and P&G, enough to keep me there twenty years!
In that time I picked up a fair share of awards, winning at Cannes, Campaign Press, Creative circle, British arrows, One show and numerous D&AD book entries including a silver pencil nomination.
And I’ve been lucky enough to have worked with some of industries biggest names, some of whom have kindly endorsed me below.
Moving through the ranks from junior Art Director to Creative Director, I found myself looking after some pretty big accounts, General Mills and Asda.
Apart from the TV and print work you see here, I’ve also produced and overseen 360 thinking for many campaigns, through digital, social, experiential, whatever the task requires.
I see myself as a problem solver – I like painfully simple big ideas, and I still have that art directors’ passion for finely crafted executions. In this constantly changing media landscape, these are skills I believe to be as relevant as ever.
I’m always up for a challenge – if you have one, contact me.
