Simon Shaw / Chief Creative Officer
I believe narrative is key to delivering the most memorable and enduring work. It is the thread that links the world’s greatest architecture and art to the most effective communication campaigns. It is through developing and embedding narratives in our campaigns and delivering them beautifully that we will produce our most effective and remembered work.
