Kill the cliché. Eradicate mundanity. Down with all that is drab and dreary. JP ‘s creative philosophy inspires his team to do work that gets noticed and remembered. He began his multi-award-winning advertising career 15 years ago with Glasgow based creative agency Spike Media.

He has since gone on to hold Group Creative Director roles at two of the UKs largest media owners. A regular public speaker on Creativity at events including AdWeek Europe, IAB Festival and corporate seminars.

Outside work you’ll find him on a stage or in a studio somewhere as songwriter and guitarist in the neo-psychedelic-rock band Helicon, signed to Fuzz Club Records.

Her most needy client is her sausage dog, Little Legged Lucy.
