Ready to make some noise
Rob Graves-Morris has recently departed London, England to join Colenso BBDO as a senior copywriter.
Over the past year, he has been freelancing for Ogilvy London and more recently, Brooklyn Brothers, creating work for MINI, Jaguar and global work for Castrol. Prior to this, Graves-Morris was at M&C Saatchi where he won D&AD awards, British Arrows, Creative Circles, and LIAs for Transport for London’s ‘Think Slow’ campaign. While there, he was also awarded for his work on Surfers Against Sewage and Royal Mail.
He's also been recognised for his film for Time To Change — The Stand Up Kid. The film was awarded, and later adapted for the stage.
About the move, Graves-Morris says he's keen to contribute to Colenso's positive noise.
"There’s also a big entrepreneurial spirit here, so it seems like the ideal place for me to grow, even if I’m not ready for fermented cuisine quite yet.”
Levi Slavin, chief creative officer at Colenso adds: “Rob is a truly innovative thinker, with a passion for launching and building brands. We’re thrilled to have him join us.”
