My Latest Work



Phil has been working with long time creative partner, Graham Storey since 1985.

In that time he has worked at many of the well-established creative advertising agencies including Lowe Howard Spink and Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO, on a range of domestic and international accounts.

He has also spent time at some of the more famous, smaller start-up agencies including Simons Palmer Denton Clemmow and Johnson, (where he launched Sony Playstation with the ‘Do Not Underestimate the Power of Playstation’ campaign) and Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe, where he worked with Robert Campbell for the first time.

After RKCR’s merger with Y&R in 2000, he was promoted to Creative Director, overseeing a large portfolio of the agency’s accounts.

With Graham, he has won most major advertising awards, including 4 Cannes Gold Lions, 5 BTA arrows, 7 Campaign Poster Silver awards, numerous Eurobest and Clio awards, a Creative Circle Gold plus 26 D&AD in book entries. He has also served on several D&AD and Creative Circle juries.

He joined (Beta) as Creative Director and shareholder in 2010, after 3 successful years as Creative Director at Fallon.

He became Creative Director at DLKW Lowe in May 2012, and in 2014 had an extremely successful year for new business- winning 4 out of 5 pitches including Calor and The Post Office.

Phil has two grown up children, (who have taught him to appreciate rap music, You Tube and Angry Birds), and is a season ticket holder at West Ham United (which has taught him to laugh in the face of adversity).
