We caught up with Jeremy Garner one of the most humble and accomplished Creative Directors around. Having started his career in Hong Kong selling garments, then setting up his own advertising agency called Wheel, Jeremy now heads up the creative department at Weapon7.

“Don’t try and be anything your not, just be yourself. There's no point putting on a facade.”

Hear about his career beginnings, day to day life as a creative director, approaching new briefs along with plenty of advice for entering the advertising industry.

If you’ve ever wondered what a Creative Director get’s up in their spare time, check out Jeremy’s many faces. Seth Garner the writer who scribes psychological thrillers based in the advertising industry and Jelly Buckingham the mnemonic artist. And you might be lucky to bump into Jeremy playing guitar in a punk band.
