Craig’s Story


I was and am a writer; at least, I try to be.  It’s what I did before I came to Hello Starling. While finding freelance work after University I started to learn something of the advertising world and the power of words therein. I realised I wanted to learn more, so I started looking for jobs within advertising. As luck would have it storks were arriving at Hello Starling with bundles of babies, which means I have been given nine months for the chance to learn as much as I can. So here I am, learning, and it’s a great place to be.

I help with everything I can; media planning, admin, marketing and wherever else I’m needed in this endlessly energetic office. I’m also pretty great at franking.

I spend it reading, writing, surfing, climbing, running and watching too much TV.
