Ian began his career in 2000 at Saatchi & Saatchi under David Droga’s reign. Working under Nik Studzinski (monster.com “Beware of the voices”), Howard Willmott (NSPCC “Real children don’t bounce back”) and Duncan Marshall (Ecko “Air Force One”) Ian picked up both the principles of good advertising and an “it can always be better” ethos.
In 2005 Ian took a plunge into the digital world, joining Profero as the lead creative. It soon paid off. In 18 months at Profero Ian won nine pitches, picked up awards for Child Protection, FRANK and Avis and was named in Campaign’s “Top 10 Digital Talents”. His Child Protection “Smiley” campaign was particularly successful, winning at numerous events including Cannes, Campaign Digital and One Show. It was also the first ever digital offering to be named “Pick of the Week” in Campaign magazine. During his time at Modem Media / Digitas he gained valuable ACD experience looking after a majority of creative pitches
and helping to develop junior teams.
Ian has picked up valuable experience while freelancing at some of London’s most creative agencies; helping R/GA to win Sky and Tetra Pak for Erasmus.
Ian has recently joined MRM London as Head of Art and is looking forward to the challenge ahead.
