About me
Hello there! I'm Neill Furmston – a hands-on Strategist, Ideas Generator, Designer, Art Director and Boardroom-level Creative Leader. In essence, a safe pair of hands you can leave a project with, in the knowledge that it'll get done, on brief and on time. I love getting to the bottom of what makes a good brand 'great' and really enjoy the process of helping brands reach the success they deserve. I have a very good eye for detail and enjoy sharing my knowledge and thirst for all things creative with others in my team. I'm award-winning, pitch-winning and client-winning thanks to my expertise and experience of running successful departments and companies in previous agencies. I'm keen to share my experience but equally keen to continue to learn from others too. I love getting my hands dirty on projects in addition to leading others – think of me as a player-manager who's still got a few tricks up his sleeve. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like the work Neill Furmston
