  • LIFEWTR - Life Unseen
    LIFEWTR - Life Unseen3 out of every 4 American's don't see themselves reflected in the film, music, art or fashion they encounter. This creates a ripple effect - young creatives don't think they can make it and we end up with less art from different perspectives. Lifewtr believes in the power of creativity and wanted to change things. First, we wanted to use film show the emotional side of being unseen simply because of who you love, the ability of your body, your gender or the colour of your skin.
  • Guinness - Compton Cowboys

The Cowboys of Compton are a group of extraordinary men who rescue horses that are often heading to the slaughterhouse. In caring for them they find friendship and responsibility, overcoming their tough upbringings in one of America's toughest cities.  I had the opportunity to take this incredible story and make it famous through new media. We took a s

  • Glowing, Glowing, Gone - a campaign to make coral's last cry impossible to ignore
    Glowing, Glowing, Gone - a campaign to make coral's last cry impossible to ignoreThe biggest threat facing our oceans is hidden away beneath the surface. Half of our coral reefs have already died, and the other half are sending warning signs that they’ll be next. It’s the most beautiful cry for help you could ever see. But if no one is seeing it…How can anyone be talking about it? We created the Glowing Glowing Gone campaign to take this extraordinary warning off the ocean floor, and into culture.
  • a2 Milk
    a2 MilkBrief: Create disruption in the milk-alternatives category Answer: Welcome Back To Milk. A campaign that shows a series of women having a euphoric reunion with milk. In the UK 25% of people have an intolerance to the a1 protein found in regular milk, but have no idea. They have stopped drinking milk altogether and switched to almond, soy and other milk alternatives.

  • Family Action
    Family Action38 million Brits feel their family is under pressure, and 61% don’t know what to do about it.

We came up with the ‘Family Monsters Project’. The campaign launched with a film directed by Great Gun’s Duncan Christie that illustrates how every family has its monsters. Some monsters are so big they take over the entire house. Others hide
