Freelance Creative Director/Art Director/Designer/WriterUnited Kingdom
About me
I’m an award winning, client facing, fully integrated creative with international experience. I create ideas, art direct, design and write. I enjoy strategy and know what a big idea is. I also understand the complexities of global campaigns across various media. I have lots of pitch experience and can handle the pressure that goes with them. As a Creative Director I have managed the might of Braun globally, workingwith, and guiding a tight harmonious team both within Grey London and alsowith partner agencies. As a Full time and Freelance Creative I've happily and successfully worked in both large and small agencies, winning pitches, retaining large pieces of business and producing highly successful campaigns. I believe in simple but powerful ideas, beautifully executed in the most relevant media. My creative work has been recognised in numerous award schemes across a wide variety of accounts including PlayStation, British Airways, Barnardo’s and Johnnie Walker. I’m also a keen Photographer, who’s work has been commissioned. My work is available at a high end image library, home to some of the world’s finest photographers. They say I am both 'good and nice'. But don't take my word for it, here’s a quick snippet from a reference kindly written by Alex Grieve (CCO at AMV BBDO, then at BBH). “Bill Bernbach once said –‘it’s not enough to be good, you have to be nice as well’. Sadly, Chris fails on both counts. He’s very good and very nice. Hire him. He’ll make you and your agency look really clever. And good. Very good.

    Braun - Series 7, 6 & 5 launch campaign.This new portfolio of shavers is a huge deal for Braun. Each product represents years of design and development resulting in various breakthroughs in shaver design. Thanks to a completely new transmission system the shaver head is now independent from the body. This allows for more flexibility in the Series 7, less pressure in the Series 6, and easier cleaning in the Series 5. We wanted these revolutionary shavers to appeal to a younger more Millennial audience. To do this we demonstrated the b
  • ❤️U - An icon for all times.
    ❤️U - An icon for all times.❤️U A symbol of togetherness inspired by recent global events. Both COVID-19 and the death of George Floyd, at the hands of Police in America, have changed our lives and hopefully our opinions and actions forever. This powerful new symbol was created to act as a simple show of love for each other and of a commitment to always do the right thing by each other. To put love at the heart of all we do. Whatever the reason. © Chris Felstead #covid19 #nhs #georgefloyd #blacklivesmatter #LoveU
