Hollie Walker

Creative Director, Wieden+Kennedy

It's about the brave work; the work that stands out. It could be moving, entertaining, funny, surprising... it’s about the work that makes you feel something.

Hollie has worked at Wieden+Kennedy London for over a decade now, where she joined straight out of Central Saint Martins college. When you’ve been somewhere that long you get the privilege of working across a whole load of different brands, alongside an incredibly talented bunch of people, who have helped create some of her most recognised work including Lurpak’s ‘Adventure Awaits’ Three’s ‘Moonwalking Pony’ and Cravendale’s ‘Cats with Thumbs’.

She’s now a Creative Director on TK Maxx, Homesense & Three Mobile overseeing provocative and entertaining campaigns that try to make the most of all the new tech innovations and different channels we have to play with.

She’s been on some ‘creative people’ lists, picked up a bunch of industry awards and had the pleasure of sitting in dark rooms judging them too. She is equal parts excited, honoured and terrified to be chairing this year’s Arrows.

It’s impossible to separate craft from idea. An idea will never be truly great if it’s poorly executed. And the slickest production will only ever stand out if it’s built on a strong insight.

Ana started her career at Mother in 2007 as an intern. Over the last 12 years, she has risen rapidly through the agency's creative ranks with husband Hermeti, and in 2015 were appointed as Mother’s first ever Executive Creative Directors in its 22-year history, before also becoming Partners in 2017. During her time at Mother, Ana has created culturally impactful work for all of the agency's major clients, including KFC, IKEA and Greenpeace, and before being appointed as ECD, was the global creative director on Stella Artois. Together, Ana and Hermeti oversee all of Mother's creative output, including IKEA's much lauded 'The Wonderful Everyday' work, which saw the brand named 2016 & 2017’s Creative Marketer of the Year by Campaign Magazine. They also work to ensure Mother uses its creative powers for good, steering projects like #FreetheFeed; an initiative to break down taboos around breastfeeding in public. In 2017, the creative duo was ranked amongst the top 3 creative leaders in the UK according to Campaign magazine.

We often refer to ideas as our babies. If that’s the case, then craft is how we dress them for school. If you’re fine with them going in with piss stained pants and 4 stripe trainers, let that be on your head.

Dave Wigglesworth, a living contradiction. The world's most mundane first name striding hand in hand with the world’s stupidest second. Learning to live with this and the cruel kids of English schools is most likely the foundation of his twisted sense of humour.

Dave went on to spend his youth failing to skate, playing in terrible skramz bands and watching too much Dirty Sanchez. With a keen interest in counter culture, he worked for music journals writing on and reviewing bands as well as going on to design and create merch for them. These questionable life choices led him down a slippery educational slope resulting in studying Advertising & Design at Leeds College of Art.

From Leeds, Dave ventured to London in search of a creative partner and job. That’s when he found his partner in crime, Ed Redgrave. Together they blagged their first paying job at St Luke’s, went on to work at Fallon and Mcgarrybowen before finding their current spiritual home working under David Kolbusz at Droga5 London. There they have helped win pitches for brands such as Amazon Prime and GoCompare and have gone on to make award winning work for clients including Amazon, Kwiff, Secret Escapes and Bulk Powders.

They have been lucky enough to work with and learn from such directors as; Steve Rogers, Tim Godsall, Jeff Low, Harold Einstein, Sam Brown, CANADA, Gary Freedman, Aaron Stoller, Brian Baderman, Sam Hibbard, AB/CD/CD, Tomas Skoging and Malcolm Venville among others.

As a team, their work has been recognised internationally at Cannes, British Arrows, D&AD, One Show, Clios, ANDY’s, Kinsale, Campaign Big, Creative Circle, London International Awards and Young Guns.

Craft is the Fred to Gingers ideas

How did I get here?

I left Edinburgh University with an Engineering degree, joined the Army where I spent a year at Sandhurst carrying heavy things, trying to stay awake and if you read the brochure, learning leadership. Three years of dodging bullets followed and as the classic Army recruitment “Where’s Frank?” advert had promised, I spent most of my career skiing, sailing and rambling over the Scottish Hillside before I deserted to join the film industry where shooting has an entirely different meaning.

Who am I now?

An enthusiastic, widely experienced expert filmmaker who over the last 22 years in the commercial industry has played key roles in developing, negotiating, budgeting and shooting films.

My fundamental skill as a Producer is to strategically plan and budget a production then execute it by communicating and negotiation. No need for water boarding anymore thankfully.

My passion is for film making narrative and the creative process of communicating and engaging the audience through simply telling a story or communicating an idea via film. Basically, I like a good yarn, especially one told over 90 seconds.

Craft can interpret the idea in multiple ways, hopefully adding a visual depth to original idea.

With over 25 yeas experience in VFX for film and commercials, Fi has an unrivalled wealth of industry knowledge and experience, is leading in her field of expertise and arguably one of the most respected and connected MD’s in the business.

Ambitious and driven, Fi started her career in post-production as a receptionist at The Mill before moving into production at Imagination and Propaganda Films and has produced VFX on iconic campaigns for Honda, Lurpak and Nike.

Formally Freefolk’s Head of Production, Fi was instrumental in leading the company from a small boutique studio to the established VFX house it is today. Fi has been running the business since 2018 with Joint MD Vittorio Giannini, oversees both the long form and commercial divisions and has been key in the company’s success in recognisable advertising campaigns including; Warburtons, I’m A Celebrity, O2,Confused and Cadbury, as well as the Emmy winning, BAFTA nominated VFX work on The Alienist for Paramount TV.

Fi’s naturally positive disposition for seeing the best in people, her passion for post and VFX, as well as her natural ability to nurture talent, creates an unrivalled creative environment at Freefolk with the industry’s most sought after VFX artists and producers working alongside her.

We honor both idea and craft because – from the first scribble of a thought on paper, to the final tweak of a pixel in grading – these two things are joined at the hip, and it's only when both are done to the best of your ability that you might just produce greatness.

Graeme is Creative Lead at Google Creative Lab in London.

He was lucky enough to start his career in 2004 at DDB London, learning from some of the best – including the legendary John Webster.

During his 5 years at Bishop’s Bridge Road he created work for Volkswagen, Harvey Nichols, and Marmite. He commissioned an ice-carving of a life-size VW, chased an inflatable speech bubble down a beach in Malaga, and composed a song from car sounds with Paul Hartnoll.

In 2009 he moved to Madison Avenue, where for three years he creative directed work at Y&R New York for a variety of clients, including the world’s first ever Invisible Pop Up Store for Airwalk. He lived in Brooklyn, got married, and rescued a cat.

His next move took him back to Europe, where as Creative Director for 180 Amsterdam he lead the launch of Playstation 4.

Then, in 2014, he returned to London, and took up the position of Creative Lead at Google Creative Lab.

Over the last 5 years he’s helped people step inside Abbey Road Studios, hunt for the Loch Ness Monster, find information and resources when they're caught up in a crisis, develop tangible programming products, make Google do it, understand how self-driving cars work, and make the most of Summer.

Amazing craft can’t resurrect a bad idea and we all know a great idea can get killed by a bad execution. Those dudes need each other.

James studied Film & Video at art school in Kent before completing an MA in Dundee at The Duncan of Jordanstone School of Electronic Imaging. It was here that he met Mike Skrgatic.

After establishing themselves in Soho as Flame artists, James spent two and a half years working as a VFX supervisor in Mexico City (long story). He returned to London where he worked at various leading post production companies. In 2008 and with a desire to create something new, Mike and James bought a Flame and set up their own company.

Time Based Arts has grown to be considered one of the most creative VFX companies in London. Its success has been based on its independence and desire to work with the best makers in the industry. It has won numerous awards for various projects in that time. James and Mike have collected awards including Clios, LIAs, D&AD Pencils, Creative Circles, British Arrows, and Kinsale Sharks for their work in VFX and more recently as directors.

It's pretty exciting getting to celebrate the skill, love, energy and dedication that's poured into both creating brilliant ideas, and bringing them to life. And there's a lot to celebrate over the last 12 months - I can't wait to get stuck in.

Olly used to enjoy making little home videos on a high-8 camera.

So, he got a job as a runner at production company Harry Films to find out more, and then kind of blagged his way into a job as a cameraman at Rapido TV. He ended up learning quite a lot about production there, whilst shooting for such high-brow shows as The Girlie Show and Eurotrash.

This interest in production and bringing ideas to life led him into the world of advertising agencies, and a job at Grey London, where he learnt how to be an agency producer.

Once he'd cracked that he moved to VCCP, where he now runs the Broadcast Department and is loving being a part of their journey.

Put very simply, it’s so important to honour both idea and craft together as it’s impossible to do justice to an idea without great craft; in all the best ads they are inseparable twins, sharing a bond which makes it impossible to think of one without thinking of the other.

Creative Director, Anomaly

For years - I thought it was ALL about the idea. It’s only recently, since working with an incredible design team that I’ve truly appreciate the importance of craft, and the sweet spot when both work in unison.

Vix Jagger is a Creative Director at Anomaly London. Most recently creative directing the global campaign for Unilever which is launching in markets across the world. The work created bespoke animations for each country that brought to life the thought that ‘Every U does good’ in both TV and digital. The work created proved so successful, it is now forming the basis of Unilever’s new global rebrand which launches in November this year. She can now say ‘Every U does good’ in 5 languages.

Previously Vix worked at both DDB and BBH. While at BBH she created the hugely successful viral film #WhatIReallyReallyWant to support the UN’s Global Goals and to improve conditions for women in developing countries. The film was a remake of the Spice Girl classic ‘Wannabe’ with women from the countries most affected performing the girl power anthem. The film received over 150 million views worldwide and made headlines across the globe, appearing in shows like Good Morning America and channel 4’s Gogglesprogs. Best of all, the film and all its responses were then shared at a UN - affecting future policies and helping make real change.
