LONDON, UK // Richard Brim is CCO of adam&eveDDB, one of the most consistently creative agencies on the world stage. Whilst Brim has been at the agency, adam&eveDDB has been Cannes’ Top UK Agency every year, with a total of 7 Grands Prix in the last 5 years as well as winning the highly-coveted Cannes’ Agency of the Year in 2014. Last year the agency was named Campaign’s Agency of the Year for the fourth consecutive year and the Gunn Report’s Most Awarded Agency in the World for the fourth time, making it the most successful creative Agency in the report’s history.
The agency’s innovative creative work is testament to Rick’s passion and talents. Recent highlights include creating a new move in FIFA 18, Skittles giving up its rainbow to Pride with 3m white packs and a star-studded karaoke video with Naomi Campbell for H&M. The agency also created genetic testing kits to find out if Marmite’s long standing strategy of ‘Love it, or Hate it’ is actually true. Moreover, Oscar winner Danny Boyle borrowing the agency’s award-winning Shoplifters campaign for Harvey Nichols for his iconic ‘Choose life’ monologue in Trainspotting 2 (agencies normally steal from films, not the other way around).
Known as the undisputed King of Christmas – Rick leads creative on the agency’s Christmas campaigns, including the world famous John Lewis Christmas campaign and Wes Anderson’s award-winning holiday campaign for H&M (as featured on the director’s IMDB).
Together with the leadership team, Brim led the agency to 12.5% growth last year, with 10 new wins including the global EA Sports and Max Factor accounts. The agency has also grown its Samsung business globally out of adam&eveNYC; the agency opened the New York office last year to accommodate the new client and it is now 25 people strong, with ECDs that report into Brim.
Last year Richard was named one of AdWeek’s Creative 100 and is a previous AdAge 40 under 40.
