Creative direction, design and strategy
Working individually or together as a team, Anouk Emanuel and Andrew Leggo have been collaborating for over 20 years, specialising in creative direction, design and strategy for brand experience, corporate marketing, new product development and live communication projects.
As Creative Directors or Lead Creatives we develop new concepts, creative themes and ideas, turning a sketch on the back of an envelope into a comprehensive creative solution. We realise our clients' ambitions through bold ideas, strategic thinking and inspired design.
We're really good at:
communicating with clients and colleagues
managing teams across different disciplines
motivating and inspiring others in order to nurture positive collaborations
turning ideas into reality
driving the creative solutions across multiple channels
remaining sensitive to brand and core business values and not losing sight of the end goal
protecting creative integrity and keeping the solution cohesive as projects develop
changing perspectives and behaviours
I have over 20 years' experience specialising in creative ideas and design solutions for the corporate live experience industry. When I bring an idea to life it’s not just in one dimension – from the written strategy right through to the theatrical delivery I make sure that the thinking is cohesive and strong.
My experience in design and my psychology background allows me to take on a hybrid role, creating environments where people come together, are entertained, learn, listen and make connections. My perspective allows me to dig deep into the brand, go beyond the brief and create something exciting, long lasting, emotional and memorable.
As a Creative Director, I listen, analyse and ask ‘Why?’. My role is to understand fully the objectives of a project and then guide the team to conceptualise, develop and deliver the most effective and cohesive creative solution possible.
From brainstorm to final delivery, my multi-disciplined design background in 3D product, digital and graphics allows me to work comfortably with stakeholders, strategists, artists, engineers, designers and programmers. I achieve the desired results by ‘talking their language’.
My influences are very eclectic and diverse; ideas might just as easily be triggered by architecture, fashion and cinema or by the latest wearable tech.
