A promising career in fashion design was cut short when Vicki discovered she couldn't draw. Luckily, she was encouraged by her mentor Paul Smith to write down her ideas instead, and soon Vicki found her way into the world of advertising.
Finding her feet in her first agency BDDH, Vicki has gone on to develop campaigns, thoughts and ideas for some of the best agencies in the world including Wieden + Kenndy, Mojo and Amsterdam International.
She then joined Grey London in 2009 and went on to work on briefs as diverse as full fat butter and The British Heart Foundation, which cemented her status as an industry icon.
The Vinnie Jones ‘Hands Only CPR’ campaign has collected more than 35 major awards, but most importantly, it has now saved more than 50 lives (and counting). The Angina Monologues, also for the BHF, earned Vicki a coveted British Comedy Award. More recently, she worked on the multi-award winning Life Paint campaign for Volvo.
To add to these many accolades, the IPA has named Vicki as one of advertising’s Women of Tomorrow; Business Insider voted her one of the 10 most influential women in advertising, and she is active in both WACL and SheSays. From 2016 – 2018 she was the first ever female chair of the Creative Circle Awards.
