About me

 

Let's get this out of the way up front, yes I was on Jim'll fix it and yes I'm fine thanks for asking. I'm now the creative director of Soho-based creative agency Mr President, and split my days between trying to bring great ideas to life and stopping even better ones being killed. Away from work I'm kept busy with my gorgeous 5 month old son Otto, and dealing with the weekly frustrations that come with supporting the Arsenal.

Inferno Ltd

Jan 2012 - Jun 2012
  • Initially working on NSPCC's 'The $#!t Kids Say' campaign, I have since been kept nice and busy working on the US launch of the swanky new Nokia and a Purina campaign that features bored cats and dogs. Reference from Al Young, Chief Creative Officer 6th July 2012 Reference for Dave Martin and Jon Gledstone To whom it may concern: I had the pleasure of working with the guys at Inferno for the best of a year. It was a pleasure because they are blessed with fine minds- curious, inventive and surprising. A pleasure because they have that all too rare ability to keep their thinking simple and focused, but always fresh. A pleasure because while they are experienced ‘grown ups’, they retain the enthusiastic get up and go of a placement team. And a pleasure because they are genuinely decent guys, a quality that’s often underrated in our industry. I’d have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending them to you and your creative department. If you’d like to discuss Dave and Jon with me, I’m very happy to do it on 07956 227866. Sincerely, Al Young Chief Creative Officer, Inferno

  • I co–founded and ran the small design agency ‘5th of November’ which, despite only being open for 18 months, successfully won the business of the UK’s largest drug and alcohol charity Addaction, and created and produced an integrated campaign to help them raise £10m worth of funding. During this time I also secured the business of the Dutch Embassy in London, with whom we created a campaign encouraging the English fans to support Holland throughout Euro 2008. I also met the Dutch Ambassador who officially made me a ‘Van Gledstone’ for the duration of that summer.
