Work history

Creative Strategist

Freelance

Jan 2016
  • I am a creative strategist and insight specialist with broad experience working across multiple communication channels on behalf of world-leading communications agencies, brands, creative industry and cultural organisations. Integrated by approach, I believe that the most potent brand ideas are inspiring yet simple ones founded on deep cultural understanding and through the seamless application of joined-up strategy and creative – whatever the channel. I also believe that at its best, digitalism lives in the real world, providing essential routes for smart, useful and efficient delivery of strategy aligned to well-defined goals. My reputation is for re-imagining and energising qualitative research for concept development and for the co-creation of fresh internal methods for fast, effective and profitable project delivery. I’m renowned for formulating category disruptive ideas, reframing media plans, devising outstanding, culturally-attuned brand strategies, and for mentoring an entrepreneurial team culture of innovation. Partly, I achieve this by developing new, playful methodologies and gamified tools that breakdown operational silos, unlock insights and deliver fresh multi-channel thinking. A well-travelled and curious explorer with a deep interest in people, culture and commerce, I routinely devise research, conduct field-work and analyse findings to identify actionable insights, to publish thought leadership, and to issue compelling creative briefs and deliver inspired brand platforms.
