Here are some of the highlights:
M&S CHRISTMAS: Well… it really was Christmas everyday. Collaboration was the name of the game and Sharry (Marketing Director, M&S) and the team made each day sparkle from concept to production. Together with a sprinkle of Paddytonne we created a little bit of Christmas joy…!
VODAFONE: Consolidating the £50M Vodafone account by winning the £10M digital pitch for RKCR Y&R. As a result Simon was promoted the position of UK CD, responsible for the output of the newly integrated account, overseeing and mentoring numerous creative teams.
CARLSBERG: Winning the Carlsberg UK 'Euro 2012' pitch for Fold7 against Saatchi & Saatchi (sorry guys). The final spot 'Fan Academy' achieving 1.5 million Youtube hits in the first few days. "Thanks Diego...!"
MINI: 'Another Day. Another Adventure.' This was a truly integrated campaign featuring a series of global adventures driven through every social media channel imaginable.
NAPCAN: Over 20 countries requested the spot for use in education programmes within government departments, schools and colleges, as well as the thousands of positive national and international responses through social media. Creatively, it was the Gunn Reports 17th most awarded ad in the world 2007, winning numerous creative awards and helping DDB to Agency of the year 2008.
LUCAS FILM: A great insight into the Hollywood world of post production and how the big boys play.
That said, the highlight was lunch at George Lucas’ house. Even though he wasn’t there. (Or, was he...?)
