About me

Senior Creative Team at Dark Horses. I've worked in the ad industry for 6+ years alongside Charlotte Hugh as a team. I have a passion for coming up with ideas and entrepreneurial thinking, for client work as well as personal projects. This is seen throughout our portfolio. I’m also part of the Young Creative Council team in London which is a collective of creatives around London that’s aim is to bridge the gap between university and industry. Co-Founded Badass.Gal which is a platform that celebrates and supports young creative female talent. I have been nominated for a number of featured industry lists; DIMA’s 50 Male Advocated of for Equality & Diversity in Marketing & Advertising and most recently Campaign’s 50 Trailblazers of the Future. And I’m also part of the SheSays ‘Who’s You Momma’ mentoring programme which helps pair women who are trying to get into the creative industry with industry mentors. If you’d like to get in touch about Badass.Gal, YCC events, talk, university talk or you’re after a book crit/advice, please drop me a line danny@youngcreativecouncil.com

DIMA's 50 Male Advocates for Equality in Marketing & Advertising


  • I’m honoured to be one of the DIMA 50 male advocates for diversity 2018, alongside some other amazing advocates https://www.dimasummit.com/male-advocates/ DIMA's goal for the initiative is to showcase and celebrate the contribution of men in marketing and advertising who are advocating for change, promoting equality and actively taking action for change. They hope the inaugural list, inspires a desire for aspiring advocates to join the conversation, and more importantly rise to the challenge for active advocacy in a positive light and pave the way for a truly inclusive future for our industry. #DIMASummit


Campaign and AMV 50 Trailblazers of the Future


  • Honoured to be one of Campaign & Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO, 50 Trailblazers of the Future. www.campaignlive.co.uk/article/campaign-amv-unveil-industrys-trailblazers-future/1495452 Campaign and Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO have unveiled the Trailblazers of the Future in a joint initiative to promote change makers across the industry. In December 2017, Campaign published the Top 10 trailblazers for change in the industry, which included Cindy Gallop and Cilla Snowball among the key people going above and beyond to impact change. This year, the top 10 convened to each nominate a further five people in the industry who are championing diversity, to make a full list of 50 Trailblazers of the Future. Dame Cilla Snowball commented: "I was lucky enough to be one of the 2017 trailblazers, and we thought it would be great to get all the top 10 trailblazers together and see what we could do to trailblaze. So we all met at AMV and decided to start this initiative together.


D&AD Best of Year Award


  • The Pitch @abcThePitch This is an event that myself and my creative partner (Charlotte Hugh) bought to life and hosted called The Pitch. The idea was to put on a football tournament between ad professionals and adThe Pitch in hope to get some notice and coverage for our upcoming degree show in London (@abcOrchard). Using twitter as our HQ we saw the whole event come to life from start to finish. News of the event even got heard of in America by Advertising Week (@advertisingweek) in New York and they would like to host The Pitch over there too. We also got some more great coverage from agencies and newspapers: pic.twitter.com/TB9zmOxr http://www.cogsagency.com/2012/03/abcthepitch-dynamo-cogs-out-on-penalties-in-the-plate-quarter-fin http://www.cogsagency.com/tag/abcthepi http://www.graphicdesign.com/article/the-pitch-advertising-students-vs-ad-agency-pros-for-a-good-ca http://www.collectivelondon.com/blog/2012/03/collective-the-pi http://helloyoucreatives.com/post/19678930482/pitching-at-wem http://www.bran http://www.dandad.org/awards/student/2012/categories/5/make-your-mark/10267/charlotte-hugh
