About me
Hello! I'm Bob, an integrated Creative and Art Director. I’m passionate about ideas and so far I’ve won around 50 awards including Cannes Lions, D&AD, Campaign and DMA. As a freelance creative I have had the pleasure of working at some great agencies including M&C Saatchi, Lida, Ogilvy, Maverick, Pernod Ricard, Hogarth and Our Design Agency on everything from pitches to creating campaigns to working directly with clients on accounts such as O2, BNY Mellon, Costa, Alcoholic Drinks Brands, Post Office, Boots and Mind Charity. Before freelance, I worked at some of the UK’s most respected agencies including Saatchi & Saatchi, Ogilvy Wunderman and JWT, working on accounts such as BT, EE, Shell, Amex, Ladbrokes, Peugeot, Toyota, St. Mungo’s, Smile Train and BlackRock. I’m creative 24/7, so I spend a chunk of my free time working on art and writing projects. I also work with an excellent award winning copywriter.

    O2 Welcome ECRMThere's plenty for a new O2 customer to discover, which means that there's a plethora of communications heading their way during the opening months. So, we gave them a clean, dynamic, unifying visual identity that communicates the energy and excitement that customers experience while exploring the world of O2 – all set against a variety of iconic British landscapes. Thanks to Ben Golik at Lida for his masterly guidance and input.
