After graduating from Northumbria University with a BA (Hons) in Graphic Design, Ross has gained 15 years experience working in and subsequently leading creative teams in some of the region’s largest branding, advertising and digital agencies, working on accounts for national and worldwide brands. As an award-winning, multi-channel creative obsessed with data and design, Ross is a big advocate of statistical clean work that engages audiences, promotes ideas effectively and helps tell a story in a unique and compelling way.
Away from his Mac and marker pens and paper, Ross spends his time lifting heavy things in the gym, watching bad TV and spending time with his wife and twin daughters.
His book recommendation is Pies and Prejudice: In search of the North. It’s the story of a man looking for the North; attempting to discover where the clichés end and the truth begins. The north. What is it? Where is it? Where does it begin and where does it end? Anything that challenges of the perceptions that creativity resides solely in the capital and it’s grim up north has got to be worth a read. Oh and pies. He likes pies.
