About BBH Labs

Labs is BBH’s global R&D unit. We’re tasked with pioneering new outputs and approaches: exploring emerging platforms and behaviours on behalf of brands, and developing new agency models along the way. Our overall ambition is to find ways in which marketing innovation can be a powerful force for good (more effective, more engaging, more sustainable, more exciting). We’re particularly interested in:

– Innovative new forms of creativity
– Novel approaches that are rapid, iterative & curatorial
– The mashup of thinking from radically different sources & industries
– Sustainable marketing at scale
– Co-creation and mass collaboration
– Social ideas and how they propagate
– Marketing as product or service

Who we are

Innovation Director, London
I studied anthropology, psychology and genetics with a smattering of statistics and have since attempted not to get bogged down doing any one particular thing. Failed at this by spending thirteen years at Penguin Books where I worked on a number of digital publishing and marketing initiatives including We Tell Stories, a collaboration between writers and game designers and, most recently, myFry, a non-linear reading application for Mr Stephen Fry. I am easily distracted and distract others and I believe that the internet’s prime function is to be a massive distraction engine for all mankind. Other distractions include a wife and three evolving digital natives, mapping, photography and fine fragrances.
