About me

 

I'm Darren; A multidisciplinary creative graduate specialising in advertising art direction. I'm a chronic thinker and resourceful, self- driven optimist with a passion for concept, copy and craft. An artist at heart and a strategist in mind, I'm ever inspired by influential and original ideas and always trying out new ways to blend insights with artistry, develop solutions to problems and build meaningful relationships by bringing stories to life. I was born and raised on a hill in South Wales, but have grown up all over the world; studying a university semester at Toronto's OCAD and recently graduating from the IPA's London AdSchool and University of South Wales with a first class honours degree. I have been fortunate enough to work with some of the smartest and savvy; playing, sharing, making, growing, endlessly learning and always seeking exciting new challenges to further my personal and professional development. I'm fascinated by culture and customs and thrive on exploring creative psychology through crafts and self-written philosophical guest lectures 'The Creative Truth' and 'Control: Creative Psychosis'.
