2007 - 2018
Started in April 2007 - to learn the new world of digital advertising - a sort of career refreshment. In my time at ICAN I was placed on a steep learning curve, as a team we helped pushed the boundaries of what could be done in digital. Winning new business and industry awards on the way. As an Art director in the digital landscape I had to keep abreast of every changing technology and finding ways to tell brand stories through them.
