Adam started out in digital in 2005, since flash banners were cool. Today, what he finds cool is whatever works brilliantly in solving a problem. He’s had the honour of picking up Gold at Cannes, One Show, Spikes, Adfest, LIA and Clio. On two separate occasions, the Big Won Report ranked him as the no.3 copywriter worldwide.
