Richard Brim, Chief Creative Officer, adam&eveDDB
Richard Brim is CCO of adam&eveDDB, one of the most consistently creative agencies on the world stage. Whilst Brim has been at the agency, adam&eveDDB has been Cannes Agency of the year twice (2014 & 2018) with 7 Grands Prix, and the Top UK Agency every year. Last year the agency was named Campaign’s Agency of the Year for the fourth consecutive year and the Gunn Report’s Most Awarded Agency in the World for the fourth time, making it the most successful Creative Agency in the Report’s history. This year, adam&eveDDB along with their predecessors BMP and DDB were this year awarded Campaign’s Agency of the Semi-Century.
Recent highlights include creating a new move in FIFA 18, Skittles giving up its rainbow to Pride with 3m white packs sold and Project84 campaign for CALM, which resulted in the appointment of the first ever Minister of Suicide Prevention.
The agency also commissioned a genetic study to find out if Marmite’s long-standing strategy of ‘Love it or Hate it’ is actually true, which it is . Moreover, Oscar winner Danny Boyle borrowing the agency’s award-winning Shoplifters campaign for Harvey Nichols for his iconic ‘Choose life’ monologue in Trainspotting 2 (agencies normally steal from films, not the other way around).
Rick also leads creative on the agency’s Christmas campaigns, including the world famous John Lewis Christmas campaign, H&M (including the award-winning holiday campaign directed by Wes Anderson), Waitrose & Partners too name a few. He is also the second most awarded parent in the Brim household and this something he wishes to rectify.
