adam&eveDDB

British Arrows is the real deal: real work, made for real clients, which real people have seen and loved. It's what makes it so special to win and important to support.

Ben started his career at O&M in 1990, before going on to work at CDP, Lowe Howard-Spink and TBWA. 

In 2004 he joined Rainey Kelly, teaming up with James Murphy and David Golding.

In 2008 the trio left to set up adam&eve. Just two years later in 2010, the agency achieved an industry first, being named both Campaign and Marketing magazines’ Creative Agency of the Year. In 2012 the agency then won the coveted IPA Effectiveness Awards Grand Prix for its work on John Lewis. Later that year adam&eve was acquired by Omnicom and merged with DDB London.

In 2014 adam&eveDDB won four Grands Prix, 7 Gold’s and was named Agency of the Year at Cannes, for its work on John Lewis, Harvey Nichols, Google and Marmite. Later that year they were also named Campaign magazine’s Agency of the Year, for the second time, and also won their second consecutive IPA Grand Prix, (this time for Foster’s), and Agency of the Year at Eurobest, Epica, LIA, AdAge, British Arrows and Shots.

In 2015 adam&eveDDB won Film Craft Grand Prix and Effectiveness Gold at Cannes for John Lewis.

Ben is the Founder and Chief Creative Officer at adam&eveDDB. He splits his time between London, Sussex and Selhurst Park.
