Global Creative Lead: Campaigns & Partnerships at BurberryLondon, United Kingdom
About me
I am the Creative Lead of Campaigns & Partnerships within Burberry's Global Creative Media Department. My team roll out our seasonal campaigns across digital, print and outdoor spaces, as well as briefing and developing immersive digital experiences and partnership content. Previous roles in London and Los Angeles were for Accept & Proceed, Wolff Olins and Siegel+Gale, where I worked with clients at Nike, The Barbican and Rapha. After graduating from Glasgow School of Art, I also spent time in the art departments of Esquire and Wallpaper* magazines. I am passionate about new modes of digital expression and am always looking for opportunities to explore them within the arts, fashion and publishing industries. I believe in creative community and regularly take part in panels and podcasts for The Dots, Lecture in Progress and D&AD. For any enquiries please contact me at: ruby@rubywight.com
