Sam is our Essex-born, Kingston-taught, London-groomed, once-Singapore-based, now-London-returned, ideas-loving designer.
He joined The Partners in London in 2007, immediately getting into the swing of things by recreating Edward Manet’s 'A Bar at the Folies-Bergère’ from 3000 unwanted Pantone chips. After 96 man-hours and four buckets of KFC, 'The Pantone Painting' became the focal point to our lock-in party and still hangs in our office today.
Since then Sam has worked on award-winning projects for a diverse set of clients including Investec Asset Management, Novo Nordisk, BHF and, more recently, Indonesian telecommunications giant XL Axiata and Hong Kong Art Gallery Association.
He is the proud winner of The Partners' first Gold Cannes Lion for his work with Richard House Children's Hospice, an award that sits alongside prizes from Design Week, NYF, ADC and D&AD.
From a metal lion to the Merlion, Sam joined our Singapore team for a few years, where he worked on the multiple work streams for AirAsia and VR Bengaluru, India’s first lifestyle destination. Last year Sam moved back home, giving up sunnier climes to work on Nespresso in London. Ah, the things we do for our clients.
