Adam Johnson was studying at the Royal College of Art Film School when one of the UK production companies got familiar with his work and enticed him into directing music videos, which in turn led him to win the Creative Futures Award for music video direction before moving over to commercials.
His critically acclaimed spot “Bank Manager” for World Development Movement won a BTAA Gold Arrow together with EPICA Gold.
With Adam’s striking personality and immense sense of humour, he delivers an extremely fun play on life. His series of spots for WKD illustrated a mixture of subtle human idiosyncrasy and broader narrative gags. Other credits include commercials for Heineken, Coca-Cola, Deep Riverrock, McDonalds, Heart FM and Debenhams.
Furthermore, his unique character helps him to retain a strong and loyal client base. If that's not enough, Adam works brilliantly with children and animals. Most recently, Adam has directed spots for Next, Amazon, and Andrex.
