I joined Saatchi & Saatchi in 1991. My time there taught me the fundamentals of creativity: brave, bold and beautiful ideas are the ones that cut through. A simple philosophy that I still believe today.
In 2003 I opened my own studio, Harrison Agency, in Brighton. I help my clients to create compelling brand strategies and I’m passionate about visually bringing those strategies to life. I work with a talented team of designers and I get to work with inspiring clients: people who expect to be challenged by creativity and aren’t afraid to run with bold, sometimes scary, ideas. Ideas that make the heart race a little faster. My studio is, I hope, becoming the kind of place where people can come and do the best work of their careers.
I have written for The Guardian, Digital Arts, Design Week, Grafik and Graphic Design. Over the last two decades I’ve advised Barclaycard, HM Treasury, Pearson, UK National Lottery, Unilever and Visa amongst others. My design awards include McNaughton Review, Fedrigoni Award, Highly Commended D&AD in-book mention and a Highly Commended Premier Award.
This blog is about my passions: creative thinking, my studio projects, the design process, branding and opinion pieces on what’s happening in the design world. This is what drives me. It’s a work in progress.
