Art Director

Hello and thank you for looking at my work.

My name is Mark but my friends call me Padders. I’m an experienced creative, passionate about design and delivering great work. With over 25 years’ experience within integrated agencies, I’ve been responsible for building creative teams at several agencies. My conceptual skills are strong and I have the ability to manage teams while retaining a ‘hands on’ approach. I have produced work of a consistency high, award-winning standard including entries in D&AD Annuals, and a BAFTA at the Interactive Awards. I am happy to work on the little briefs as the big pitches - in whatever channel is called for - please get in touch.

Spark44/Accenture, DLKW Lowe, Digitas LBi, Saatchi & Saatchi, Proximity, MTV, Golley Slater, AML, BigDog Agency & RBH.

I’ve been nominated and won over 30 creative and effectiveness awards at both international and national level including: BAFTA, New York Directors Guild, D&AD, BIMA, Cream & Roses. And have also lectured and judged at various schools and awards.
