Narrating and leading our naming / branding session is Peter Kirby.
We’re in good hands. He is brilliant with words, an artist and brings buckets of positive energy into the room (or open air).
Pete works with many of London’s advertising agencies as a writer and strategist on brands such as O2, EE, Guinness, Tesco, Sony, Nike, HSBC, Shell and VW, weaving these commercial ventures in among his cultural work. Some of which has appeared in galleries, books, journals, biennales, newspapers, museums and streets around the world, including The Guardian, The Design Museum, The Drawbridge, Channel 4, Bank Gallery in LA, Material Journal, The US Postal Service and Customs, Tate St Ives in collaboration with Richard Long and the first 2 London Architectural Biennales.
He was creative director at acclaimed ad agency HHCL overseeing international accounts such as FIFA and Texaco, but left to start Thisness. He helped start The Big Lunch with the Eden Project.
Pete is currently working on a new attitude to dementia, a long-term vision for Dartington, a village built around a working farm in Truro, an arts-based digital platform that feels like the bastard offspring of the UN and various art and publishing projects that may see the light of day when he’s long gone.
A writer and artist, he lives in Cornwall with his wife and daughters. He works regularly with the guys at
A-Side Studio. We’re delighted to have him play an instrumental part in You Name It*.
