Hey, I'm Adam.

I’m a Senior Creative and Art Director currently fiddling with ideas at DDB New Zealand. I’ve been creating stuff for advertising agencies for about 10 years now. 

Some career highlights include working at Clemenger BBDO Melbourne when it was awarded the best agency in the world. Then my partner and I were named the top creatives in the world under 30 by YoungGuns International. That one made mum proud, even though she had no idea what the award was for. I’ve also picked up a few shiny things from every major award show around the globe.

Brands I've worked on include McDonald’s, Volkswagen, SKY TV, Mars Brands, KiwiRail and CUB Breweries, at some of New Zealand and Australia's best agencies, like DDB New Zealand and Clemenger BBDO Melbourne. I also tutored AWARD school in 2017, mentoring upcoming creatives in Melbourne.

Take a look at a few of my favourite pieces of work and if you want to get in touch, I'd love to chat.
