More information about Chris will appear here shortly.
Chris started building websites at school instead of getting a proper job. He was employed by Jay Armitage in Leeds at the age of 18 and in 1999 the two founded digital agency 'DS.Emotion' which developed a few eCommerce sites for clients such as BT. Deciding IT wasn’t their thing, Chris moved to London in 2002.
Jay and Chris stole the digital department in 2005 and this became Ralph. Now working with most major UK & US broadcasters and film studios and winning some awards here and there including a BAFTA and Emmy nomination, the team has gone from strength to strength with offices in London, LA and New York.
After gaining experience at many of London's top agencies, Philip Beaumont began his advertising career in 2000 at Partners BDDH, working on blue chip brands across various sectors including public services, charity, automotive, drinks and luxury goods. He was soon recognised with many industry accolades including Cannes Gold & Cyber Lions, Creative Circle, Epica, ANNA, Aerial & Campaign Big Awards, earning him Campaign's 'Face to Watch'.
Working for EuroRSCG London his success continued, developing the highly acclaimed British Heart Foundation 'Fatty Cigarette' campaign, as well as award wins for Evian 'Wimbledon', Staples 'Back to School' and Yakult 'Small but Clever'.
As Creative Director at Havas Worldwide Philip has created and owned 'look and feel' for several of the Agency's drinks, automotive, financial and luxury goods accounts, including Chivas Regal, Mateus, Peugeot, Credit Suisse and Santander. He is currently Creative Directing Ideal Standard, Evian, Badoit, Mateus and pieces of new business, relishing the challenge of bringing art direction skills to a new and ever-changing media landscape and building exciting, beautiful brands.
Rich is a highly experienced, award-winning creative director who, over the past 18 years, has been all over the advertising industry in above-the-line, below-the-line and through-the-line. Along this path, he has won many awards including a Cannes Golden Lion, a London International Gold, four Creative Showcase awards, an FWA mobile award and most recently 4 BIMAS and a DMA Gold for his One Direction digital campaign which included Agency of the Year 2011.
In the past 10 years, Rich has immersed himself in the digital world and became creative director
at Grand Union in 2005, Greenroom Digital in 2007, and Momentum in 2009. He is now creative director at ais London.
In this time, his focus around ‘social media storytelling’ has helped him to develop successful campaigns such as launching a ginormous gnome made of foam in a hot air balloon on behalf of Rowntree’s Randoms; creating an interactive sensory spectacular for the launch of XBox's Kinect across the UK; a 50-day worldwide transmedia storytelling experience for One Direction and their fans; a year long social media skirmish for the latest handheld console for PlayStation Europe.
To add to his wealth of experience, Rich has developed numerous website builds for some major brands. Most notably leading the strategy, development and design for Rowntree’s – the home for all their confectionary brands; The Army website; The Energy Savings Trust; The Gladiators’ website for SKY1; Christian Aid; The Digital Switchover website for Digital UK; Britvic Tango; and tons of sites for gaming and film brands such as Sony Pictures International, Paramount International, Pathé, Sony PlayStation, Lionsgate and Microsoft.
Rick will always be grateful to Glasgow. After graduating from the Watford College Copywriting Course,
Glasgow's Stewart & Mitchell handed him his first job.
Then it was back to London to serve under the late, great John Webster, at BMP.
Young and Rubicam and Kirkwoods were next, before Rick was made a Group Head and Board Director
at Foote, Cone and Belding.
Two years as Deputy Creative Director of Grey followed.
He then coined the phrase, Creative Independent, and set up May and Sear, where he learned to go without sleep
while being a fireman for London agencies.
He then set up an advertising with design agency, Integrator.
After that, it was time to learn some new tricks. Namely, direct mail, digital and social media at OgilvyOne
where he is a copywriter working principally on British Airways and UPS.
Rick has won a Gold Lion at Cannes for TV, a Gold for TV at Creative Circle, had two Silver nominations for TV at D&AD,
made a few appearances in the D&AD annual for press and won three Gold DMAs.
He still adores the industry and tries to ensure that never a day goes by without a laugh.
