Two heads are better than one.

Gain 50 years’ experience in just 24 hours.

We’re known for being rather remote.

When you really need a number two.

What are we?

GB Advertising is nothing to do with Brexit but everything to do with great branding and two good blokes (though we say so ourselves).

Since our launch in February 2020, GB ADVERTISING has worked on over 30 briefs for other agencies across the length and breadth of the country.

And we’re very proud of the work we’ve done.

We believe the agencies we’ve worked for are too.

The fact is, our white-label freelance offering means we work under your name, not ours. Helping your agency, design studio and digital team win creative pitches, new business and awards.

So whether you need concepts, creative or content, why not hire the team your rivals are using?

The ad agency’s ad agency.

Who are we?

We are senior creative team copywriter Richard Grisdale and art director James Bott. Our collective 40 years of globally award-winning experience have taken in senior roles with major creative agencies Saatchi & Saatchi London and Australia, M&C Saatchi and JWT and DDB London handling the marketing, online and off, for blue chip brands in every conceivable market sector.

What we do

For Agencies

Our ability to seamlessly slot into an agency structure, our understanding of ways of working and our strength in both insightful strategic thinking and fresh, original creative delivery enable us to crack the thorniest of briefs more quickly and accurately.

For Creative Recruiters

Our profound understanding of agency structures, briefing procedures and requirements, and our experience in every market sector and channel, online and off, provide recruiters with the reassurance that their clients’ expectations will be met and exceeded.

For Private Clients

Our strategic capabilities and our expertise in getting straight to the heart of a brand’s identity and consumer needs help us turn around cut-through marketing that has an immediate and dynamic impact on brand awareness and sales.

Yet another pretty picture

As typical creatives all we really care about is creating pretty pictures.
And here are some we like the most…
