Billington Cartmell, Brave and Closer Live :: Technical Director

I was appointed Technical Director of Billington Cartmell (www.bcl.co.uk), their sister adverting agency, Brave (www.brave.co.uk) and their experiential arm, Closer (www.closerlive.co.uk) in January 2012. The group of companies between them represent a phenomenal array of leading clients including Carlsberg, Panasonic, Sennheiser, Philips, Unilever, Kraft, GSK, Lexus, Morrisons and Ernst & Young.

Sennheiser :: Labyrinth Collaboration Event and Facebook App

Billington Cartmell had a very successful music and performance arm, developed to marry brands and celebrities in a complementary marketing synergy. Artists like Plan B, Kylie Minogue and Dynamo teamed up with brands like Lucozade and Lexus for some award winning collaborative campaigns.  One of these  collaborations involved Sennheiser, a client, and Labyrinth teaming up to target the booming teenage headphone market that was increasingly dominated by brands like Beats Audio. I oversaw the Facebook competition from a technical perspective in which winners could spend time in the studio with Labyrinth and then assisted in the R&D on the event side which involved professional photographers compiling branded adverts emulating the campaign with pictures of attendees in the place of Labyrinth.
