About me
I'm Ash, one half of a senior creative duo 'Ash & Andy'. We have 7 years experience in the industry, our last 3 spent at Saatchi & Saatchi & the 3 before that at M&C Saatchi, with a year of placements at Grey, BMB and Engine. Other than art directing, I'm also passionate about Photography (i have a camera but that by no means makes me a professional photographer) and editorial design (although i don't get to do a lot of this). I'm also not like your average art director in that i'm writing a novel. It's a work-in-progress, 4 yrs to be exact so might be a way off publishing just yet. I also brew my own beer.

We completed the whole production in-house, including direction, editing and visual effects. In addition to the 90″ online film we also delivered 60″ & 40″ VOD versions, social media cutdowns
