  • McDonald's Social
    McDonald's SocialWinning the pitch for and then working across the global brand's UK social channels for 2 years, the task was to continue creating posts that would get a audience talking, liking and sharing.
  • Respect the Water
    Respect the Water It’s a terrible statistic but men aged 16-39 make up 80 per cent of the total fatalities in British waters, so a focussed approach was needed to hit this target audiences and reduce the loss of life at sea. Working on behalf of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), Drum knew that The LAD Bible, which reaches over half of all UK men aged 18-24, would be the perfect partner to create a campaign that was serious but culturally relatable to this audience. The 'Respect The Water’ campaign featured an eclectic mix of emotional and personally relevant stories across its social and digital channels. The short videos told three real stories that reinforced the Respect The Water message, mixing hard-hitting and authentic stories of peril on the sea, with genuine images and videos of those lads involved, along with other water-themed editorial to provide more engagement.
  • McDonald's Channel Us
    McDonald's Channel UsMcDonald's needed to reach 16-24 year olds who had fallen out of love with the brand. Enter: Channel Us - a youth platform, launched on YouTube that featured a weekly show running over 15 weeks where popular influencer Olly White helped aspiring teens deliver something extraordinary in just 72 hours.

    Co-FounderThe Photography Movement
    London, United KingdomPart Time
    Founded after losing two friends to suicide, the charity uses photography to express people’s emotions and share stories. In 2017 I co- curated and hosted a photography exhibition at Getty Gallery, London exploring modern day masculinity. Over 80 amateur and professional image makers, including feted photographers Martin Parr & Rankin took part. Sponsored by Unilever and Getty images, the exhibition helped raise over £20,000 for Suicide prevention charity CALM. We have also created workshops /exhibitions across the UK & Europe and I continue to support.
