About me

Laurence could have easily embarked on a career as an account man or marketing director after studying Advertising and Marketing at the London College of Communication but instead but he chose to stick with the unpredictable road of becoming a creative. This took him to Buckinghamshire University where he graduated with a first in his degree in Creative advertising. 7 weeks after leaving university he and his partner landed a job at Leo Burnett and a couple of years later he helped them become the number one TV agency in the world at Cannes. He was then head hunted by AMVBBDO, where he created memorable work for Pepsi, The Economist, Sainsbury’s and a TV Campaign for BT which featured a singing chameleon phone thatbecame the best-selling novelty item that Christmas. His next move was to JWT as Creative Director, where he created the world’s first talking Press ad. He was then poached by Saatchi & Saatchi where he helped them win a big part of the global HSBC account, which he previously worked on at JWT. He then went solo to work at Adam&EveDDB, where he worked on many of their famous brands including John Lewis, Volkswagen and The Telegraph. The highlight was an ad for Harvey Nichols which featured the first 100 year-old fashion model in Vogue magazine. After helping so many big agency’s Laurence decided he wanted to experience an independent agency and began working at Quiet Storm. He is currently Creative Director at BBC Studios. Laurence’s work has been recognised at every major awards show including gold, silver and bronzes at Cannes, Silver, graphite and wood pencils at D&AD, Gold and silvers at Clios, Golds, silver and bronze at Creative Circle. He also has a better sense of humour than this description suggests.
