Elliott Starr

Head Of Copy at 20something
On the record

I like to make things and solve problems. I particularly like to make things that solve problems. I started my career at Leo Burnett. Here, Cannes Lions recognised my then creative partner and I as 'Best Young Creative Team' in the UK. This happened two years running - our first two in the industry. I've since worked at Fallon and Drum, tackling briefs from some of the world's biggest brands. I'm currently working alongside the lovely Will Thacker at 20something, helping to run the creative department.

I've created work recognised by awarding bodies around the world. But that isn't what gets me out of bed. Brands have colossal power, more than many people in the advertising industry acknowledge. Brands shape our culture. They shape the way we behave, feel about ourselves, and our lives. A career in advertising can see one have a profound effect on people and the planet. I wake up every day to use that for the better, and to make things that change things.
