About me
An art director, photographer and publisher with over 9 years experience in advertising. Creating campaigns across digital, social, experiential and integrated at some of the world’s top agencies. Making advertising that’s not advertising. Putting brands in culture. My camera keeps my eye keen. My inspiration comes from anything, anywhere. My ideas start flowing when the coffee is brewing. I have a strong aesthetic and can communicate ideas quickly. Telling visual stories in smart ways. Leading teams through projects.
  • Meta - Flex, Naija
    Meta - Flex, NaijaMeta wanted to bring the metaverse to Lagos. I worked along side creative agency Metallic to get Nigerian creators to “flex” in the metaverse for the first time together. In Nigerian culture, the term ‘flex’ can mean many things, but ultimately it’s about expression and collective enjoyment. I wanted to celebrate this and show Nigerians how to take their flex to another level.
  • WaterWipes - as pure as the moment
    WaterWipes - as pure as the momentWaterWipes wanted a brand refresh. This meant defining their brand principles, art direction and tone of voice across all channels. As the worlds purest baby wipe, I wanted to show parenting in a pure and honest way, bringing a fresh approach to the baby care category.

  • Burton Menswear - Just The Ticket
    Burton Menswear - Just The TicketBurton Menswear were needing a bit of a revamp, you know spruce it up a bit. Back in the day, Mr Montague Burton wanted the lads of the day to look sharp for cheap. He dressed our war time heroes in a 3 piece suit, coining the phrase, "The Full Monty".
    YTYKWYAThe world is full of people trying to find their way. But more than ever, people are lost. I has been lost for years. A photographer traveling the world and exploring his mind. Taking pictures on the road to nowhere, arranged into a surrealist dream-like narrative travel book. You Think You Know Where You Are Is a guide to being lost. Full of dead ends and misdirections. A record of the world where places feel simultaneously familiar and new
  • ECC
    ECCThe Experimental Circle Club is a collective I've worked closely on a number of projects with. It was born out of a subculture on the estuary at the end of the River Thames. The ECC Archives was a project to create a record of a tribe of experimental noise bands. They were filmed in a abandoned office with a static camera as their audience.

    MIND FCUKBeing a bit naughty is in French Connection's heritage, so when it came to revealing their SS15 collection we played with your dirty minds. Working on everything from print to social, we played with different functionalities and platforms to create interesting mindfcuks. Proving so popular, t-shirts were made and sold in store.
    #MINDFCUKWe were asked to launch French Connection’s SS15 collection via social channels, based on the thought of “the new nude”. We decided to bring back some of that convention-busting, attention-grabbing brand personality that made them famous in the first place. #MINDFCUK was the most successful social campaign French Connection have ever run. It was so popular they even put it on a t-shirt. "I'm obsessed with #MINDFCUK @FCUK #brilliant" - @katielynch78
