As Caroline's joint creative director and art director I'm passionate about producing the absolute very best on every job that leaves the agency.
With over 40 awards for creativity in my locker (including a Grand Prix and ‘Agency of the Year’) I've got plenty of silverware which I'm very proud of. But the biggest kick I get is when clients report back that the work has achieved everything it was supposed to.
Whatever the media channel, in my book there are only two rules:
1. It's all about the idea.
2. It's all about the idea.
Strategic partner (One Inch Punch)
I've worked for some of the best agencies in London, such as BBH, Lowe, Iris and GGT and in Bristol I was CEO of Bray Leino for 5 years.
I've worked in pretty much every discipline; from digital and direct marketing to brand advertising. So whether it’s granular thinking using data intelligence, or expansive brand thinking, I know the right tool to get the job done. One Inch Punch believes in distilling senior experience to create simple and robust strategic thinking for clients that brings about a fast acting solution to their problems.
I've worked as a copywriter and creative director in London, Manchester and Paris for FCB, McCann, VCCP and Publicis.
In other parts of the world I've worked for Saatchi's and Ogilvy.
In Bristol I set up and ran Elm Road Studios, which made over 200 ads for lots of top agencies, and one year beat Sir Ridley Scott’s company in Campaign magazine’s annual awards table.
All these years later I still absolutely love doing this, I'm as fervent and committed about what I do to this day as I was on my very first.

Client Services Director
With over eighteen years of experience in client services, I’m proud to still have relationships with some of the clients from my very first steps into the creative world, and I’ve attended a few of their weddings along the way too.

In my book there are also two rules:
1. Never reveal everything you know...
