Executive Creative Director
Highly awarded and respected within the creative community, Grant’s background in film and television scriptwriting helped to quickly establish him as one of Australia’s most sought after copywriters. Rising through the ranks, he gained a reputation for integrated thinking and has worked on some of Australia’s most recognised campaigns, including WWF’s Earth Hour, which he helped to create (a campaign that has subsequently earned a place in the Clio Hall of Fame). Long associated with Leo Burnett, his awards, including two gold D&AD pencils and numerous Cannes Gold Lions, number in the hundreds, generated from clients such as Lion Nathan, Volkswagen, Telstra, Diageo, Canon, Coca-Cola, Nestle, Optus and Samsung.
In the last six years at Leo Burnett, he has had a hand in creating almost all of the work that has been awarded globally, especially that of Samsung, Diageo and Coca-Cola. It is for this reason that he, like his creative partner, Vince, has been recognised as one the world’s top ten creative directors by the One Club.
He has also judged locally and globally and is one of the few creatives in the country to have been awarded an elusive Cannes Titanium Lion.
