With over 25 years in the industry, Martin has experience across the industry, most recently at BMB, where he was employed from its beginnings. Ryan Shaw, creative director, The Bank commented: “As The Bank grows we are always looking for the right people to join the team. As a creative, I know that it isn’t easy finding a partner who can share yet challenge your creative vision, but I think that we have found this synergy with Dom. He is seriously talented and is notorious for creating ideas that are always several years ahead of their time. He is credited for creating the world’s first mobile marketing iPhone app, which is exactly the type of innovation and passion we know will drive the exciting campaigns we’re pitching for and working on at the moment. I’m thrilled to be working alongside Dom and look forward to creating more exciting work that will place The Bank firmly on the map.”

And with a strong reputation as a dynamic alternative to the big network owned agencies, they’re well poised to take on the best of them. I also like their personal approach. Clients really appreciate it and they’re all values I’m keen to be a part of.” The Bank recently launched the Peroni Nastro Azzurro’s summer advertising campaign, as well as a beautifully crafted Pilsner Urquell film, ‘The day Pilsen struck gold’.
