Creative Director, TBWA\Digital Arts Network Sydney & Eleven PR
With over 18 years’ experience as a creative, Russ has worked across many different disciplines of advertising, digital and PR. He helped a London start-up, Agency Republic, win many Agency of the Year accolades in London before he moved to sunny Sydney in 2007.
Russ has since gone on to specialise in ideas that earn media attention. His work has helped rescue dogs on behalf Pedigree, shifted cars for Nissan, and created rich brand campaigns and experiences for NRMA Insurance, Airbnb and Apple.
He’s creatively helped the agency group win over 20 Agency of the Year titles and brought home international awards for a diverse range of clients. His creative work has been recognised locally and globally, notably with an International Emmy award.
Russ has been invited to judge at both Cannes Lions and the prestigious D&AD awards as an Australian juror.
When he’s not in the office, Russ loves to paint mini-graffiti on model train sets, which he believes is not geeky at all…not at all.
