Working in Manchester
My career in advertising started at McCormics, Publicis - an Advertising Agency in the heart of Manchester, where I started as a junior visualiser.
I worked on the fifth floor in Brook House on Spring Gardens. The view from the office windows was always interesting - mainly scaffolding I seem to remember, but one building that always stood out was the magnificent Midland Bank building, it was still a bank in those days.
My Creative director took a polaroid photograph as the sun set on the upper floors of the building - the image has always stayed with me and I wish I had the original, it was probably at this time I started becoming fascinated by the buildings around me.
