Over the last 15 years I've been an art director first and foremost. But during that time I’ve also enjoyed writing, strategic thinking and creatively directing younger members of the team. I've worked my way across 3 international markets, Ioving every bit of a journey that has exposed me to just about every medium going - tv, print, digital, radio, POS, events and activation.
I love visual concepts but also relish the challenge of originating big ideas. For me it’s important that they’re based on relevant market insights, executed in specific mediums for the target audience. I've done this for many clients and for some, I've been recognised by the advertising community globally at various award shows, shows like Cannes, D&AD, One Show, Clio, London Internationals, Loeries, Dubai Lynx and Jay Chiat.
In my last position I worked alongside my copy based CD, looking after the visual side of things. Together we ran the regional account of one of the Middle East‘s largest clients. I’ve recently moved back to the UK and am looking for a Creative Director role as my next challenge. At such an exciting time in my career, I’m driven to share my wide ranging integrated skills and experience with the creative team around me, plus of course some ideas of my own.
If this sounds like what you’re looking for, then I look forward to chatting further. In the meantime, you can also find my website at www.chrishartcreative.com.
