The concept of creative marketing

'Creative marketing' is no longer the words and the pictures that go into the ad campaigns of the 1950s. Modern day brands are asking more from their partners than ever before, and marketing has become a complex art of analytics, strategy and customer experience. To me, creative marketing is all of this combined with first-class design and seamless execution. Drawing upon my experience of leading busy teams, working with digital agencies, and helping startups find their style, I formed BMHS Digital to raise the bar for exceptional creative marketing that delivers.

"A creative genius who helped bring a new edge to our creative team, as well as fresh thinking and a great management style."
