Projects credited in
  • Scents of Life - The Body ShopIdeated and produced this campaign. Female empowerment in the Middle East was at the heart of this campaign. We shot modern muslim women in situations that women in ME have only recently be given the rights to partake in. I wanted to focus on strong M-generation women and worked with a Cultural Advisor to ensure that this campaign was relevant. My in-house team shot this in the UK. This is a regional campaign and was played in ME & APAC across all channels.
  • She in every Shea - The Body ShopIdeated and produced this campaign. It was always important to show the empowerment that these special women have but it was equally important for me to empower my in-house team to travel to Ghana to shoot with the inspirational women who produce the Shea butter for The Body Shop. This is a global campaign and was played in 69 countries across the following assets: In-Store, Online, Digital, CRM, OOH, Social Media, PR, Editorial.
  • Plastics for Change - The Body ShopIdeated and produced this campaign. Plastic affects the world in many ways, we know about the oceans and the animals, there are better organisations to talk about this with authority other than ours. I wanted to focus in the human element and really highlight the unimaginable story of human plight living in and around plastic. My in-house team shot this in India. This is a global campaign and was played in 69 countries (and still is) across all channels.
