Chris Schofield is an advertising creative dedicated to the pursuit of original ideas, effective ads and happy clients. His career began at Colenso BBDO in 2000, winning Gold at The One Show within six months of arriving. From there he spent three years with Generator Bates on brands such as Sony, BMW and Amnesty International, claiming gold metal wins at Young Guns. In 2004, Chris joined Saatchi and Saatchi Auckland with a desire to work on bigger brands and achieved success that year launching Telecom’s 3G mobile network, as well as winning two Gold Lions for The Telecom Rubbish Film Festival. At DraftFCB from 2005, Chris travelled throughout the network assisting agencies in Tokyo, Shanghai, Chicago and New York and in his first year with FCB, the agency won more awards in total than the agency’s entire awards history. In 2009 Chris was appointed Creative Director, and has since been invited to judge a host of award shows including Cannes, One Show and Clio. But the thing he enjoys above all else, is referring to himself in the third person. Chris joined DDB Auckland in 2011 and is probably at his desk right now.
