About

Hi and thank you for checking out my site. I’ve been an advertising creative for nearly thirty years, a journey that has taken me from junior Art Director with US agency Chiat/Day to Creative Director at Saatchi & Saatchi London. 

I now freelance as part of a creative team, rupertandphil.com, which has given me the opportunity to work with lots of different types of agencies, many talented people, and on briefs, from big brand pitches to social posts. Combined with my old school background in big ideas I'm ready for any creative challenge.

To be honest, 2020 was a bit shit (we picked up a few jobs, but wow). Now 2019, that was a decent year. We did a lot of hopping back and forth, with spells at Fold7, BBH, O&M, Kindred, and a few smaller agencies. We helped out with Fold7’s successful Probably Not Carlsberg campaign, got a Weetabix radio ad into Campaign’s best of 2019 (number 5), had our 2018 Secret Santa campaign re-used by Cadbury, and we finished the year with a nomination for Yuno Juno’s best freelance team award. 

As a creative team, we have some regular clients that have made us their first port of call - which is nice. But always keen to grow that fan base! Always up for a challenge, if you have one, feel free to get in touch. rupertandphil.com and philclarkecreative.com
