Stephanie Symonds
Creative Director
Saatchi & Saatchi

CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA // As a student with a passion for ‘unusual’ videos at animation school, it’s not surprising that Steph’s advertising career took off (literally).

Her talent as an art director has taken her from Joburg to London and Cape Town, where she even chose to focus on making films for a while (weird since she hasn’t even seen Forrest Gump).

She’s collected some lions, birds, skinny figures holding squashed basketballs, pencils, and her neighbour’s cat along the way.

Now, she’s creating a cult following as creative director at Saatchi & Saatchi for clients like P&G, Mondelez and Burger King who are slowly but surely learning what she meant when she said her ideas were ‘unusual’.

If you see her around, you’ll have what she’s having.
