Chris Palmer discusses his work

The many faces of Chris Palmer
Director Chris Palmer is profiled in this month’s issue of Creative Review, where he discusses his journey through the world of advertising, from his early days as a copywriter to becoming a director and running Gorgeous Productions, as well as his current interest in moving towards feature film direction.
This news may strike a blow to the advertising world, as Palmer has created some of the best-loved ads of recent years. These include Skoda’s Baking of…, which saw an entire car created out of cake, and Carlsburg’s Old Lions, where a group of veteran England players form the ‘Best Pub Team in the World’, both of which cleaned up at the recent BTACA Awards. As an extension to the magazine piece, we’ve brought together some of Palmer’s greatest recent ads here, alongside his personal commentary on his work.
