He also cites such recent key standout work as being BP ‘Unbreakable’ with Stewart Suggs out of Psona as it was so beautifully shot, with a nice creative idea and highlighting a good message. Adidas ‘Superstan’ with Marie Schuller was also a great way to kick off the year working alongside RSA and Hypemaker. And the recent Marshall ‘Guided By Music’ campaign working with Marshall directly and Dog Eat Dog productions.

Some of her highlight creative includes Producing the Running Man short film with Chris Turner which has been around the film festival circuit being nominated at some of the most important in the calendar, and more recently Elliot Dear’s Starling Bank ‘Off the ground’ working with Blink Ink and Wonderhood Studios was an epic piece to have been involved with.
Partizan Director Ali Kurr’s This Girl Can 4 working with FCB Inferno was such an inspiring empowering project to be a part of, all of the feel good vibes to start the year.

I couldn’t be happier for them both!’
