Projects

    Canada's Drag RaceWe welcomed Canada’s best drag queens to the UK at the height of lockdown! From 48 sheets across the country, to social, digital and TV assets, this campaign reached 95% of 18 to 34 year olds and was a huge hit for BBC Three.
  • Sandows
    SandowsBrief: Use Instagram to communicate the brand ethos of Sandows. Insight: Sandows namesake pays homage to Victorian strongman, Eugene Sandow. I made a short animation to give life to the man behind the Sandows name, also demonstrating the precise craftsmanship required in producing delicious cold brew coffee. Idea: 'There's Graft in the Craft.'
  • The Knacker's Yard
    The Knacker's YardClient: D&AD Brief: Create an integrated campaign to reinvigorate the London Birmingham night-time economy. Insight: The Birmingham music scene is a key part of Midlands culture and should be celebrated. However, pubs and grassroots venues are closing down at an alarming rate and the Midlands is sadly, no exception. Generation X’ers are going to LESS live music events than both millennials and baby boomers. They have one foot in both the analog and digital era, as pioneers of the tech movement
