Andrew Spurgeon

Executive Creative Director

Langland

WINDSOR, UK // Dissatisfied with the status quo and forever seeking ways to do things better, Andrew’s impact on creativity in health communications has been sustained and significant. And with Langland’s award-winning performance remaining unsurpassed, many continue to regard the agency as setting the benchmark for the sector.

Andrew earned his first Executive Creative Directorship in Singapore aged 28, which at the time made him the JWT network’s youngest ECD. Developing his career in Asia taught him the importance of simplicity and humility, skills that proved useful on his return to London as Global Creative Director on Unilever and Shell.

Since Andrew joined Langland in 2008, the UK health specialist has enjoyed increasing success, doubling in size and producing some of the industry’s most talked about campaigns. These achievements culminated in Langland receiving the inaugural Lions Health Agency of the Year award in 2014, a fitting accolade on the world stage for a genuinely outstanding team.

Andrew’s work has been recognised at Cannes Lions, Lions Health, London International Awards, Globals, Spikes, Clio Health and New York Festivals. In the past three years, Langland has won more than 300 industry awards under Andrew’s creative direction. These include Lions Health Healthcare Agency of the Year (2015), IPA Best of Health Best of Show (2015) and Global Agency of the Year at New York’s Global Awards (2015).  

He has judged at numerous international award shows, and is a former Health & Wellness Jury President at Cannes Lions Health.
