The creators

We’re a diverse group of healthcare marketers, scientists, strategists and creative thinkers, but we all have one thing in common – our relentless curiosity. It’s our absolute fascination with all things health that makes our creative as innovative as the things we’re marketing.

Ed Hudson

Ed Hudson

Managing partner

Losing a close family member at an early age made me realise just how important health is. I’d planned a career in medicine, but after deciding that A-Level sciences weren’t for me, I pursued my love of communications and forged a career in marketing. I feel very fortunate to be able to combine my two passions to create work that truly matters.

Phil Blackmore

Creative partner

The healthcare industry is bursting with extraordinary and ingenious ideas that have the power to transform the way we live and empower people to take control of their own health. Healthcare marketing, on the whole, is not. I’m proud to be part of an agency that’s changing that.

It’s an exciting and inspiring time to be working in Healthcare. We’re all taking more responsibility and ownership for our health – it’s something we actively engage in and seek out the best solutions for our needs. So, it’s a wonderful moment to be helping brands connect, care for and inspire us all to live healthier, more informed and fuller lives.

Senior artworker

Whether I’m creating the artwork for an email that could cut patient waiting times, or a brochure to launch a life-changing piece of technology, it’s pretty amazing to know that I have worked on a project that will help prevent or cure a medical issue.

Christina Beani

Christina Beani

Senior designer

The ad industry can sometimes feel a little superficial, so it’s great to be able to work in a sector that’s for the better of people; empowering, enlightening, improving health and ultimately lives. Working for Create Health enables me to combine my love of design, my urges to get geeky and my need to care for people.

Senior planner

Our health is omnipresent, one of the only things that has a profound and continued impact on what we do and how we do it. Working with clients that have the ability to genuinely change the way people live their everyday is hugely exciting and something I’m proud to be part of.

Ollie Davies

Finance manager

I’ve worked with numbers for nearly a decade. But this is the role I have felt most passionate about and proud of – knowing that the work we do has a real and positive impact on people and their lives is really special.

Carrie Fick

Carrie Fick

Marketing manager

With a family background in medicine, and being a Pilates teacher myself, health is something I’m passionately invested in. I’m also fascinated by the power of communication and creativity, so the opportunity to work with partners that make a lasting impact on people’s health and well-being is an exciting one.

Lucy Harrison

Lucy Harrison

Copywriter

Surrounded by the often vacuous consumerism of marketing, I think it’s wonderful to be able to work with brands that truly matter. Ones that change lives, save lives, and improve lives every day. Create Health lets me express my passion for crafting copy, while helping such important causes make the connections and get the engagement that they deserve.

Tom Hunt

Having always been fascinated by the advancements in healthcare technology and treatments, I wanted to play a role in transforming these ideas to connect with those that need them most. Through Create Health, I can enable people to live healthier and happier lives – and that drives my passion every day.

Anna Joseph

Anna Joseph

Account director

The joy of client services is connecting with clients and what they do. Our clients are passionate, intelligent and excited about their products and our creative process. The projects that we’re involved with reflect this, so the final product is always something that we can all be proud of.

Joe Ruddock

Joe Ruddock

Art director & producer

I’ve always been curious about how things work, whether it was posters of dissected frogs on my bedroom wall (sorry mum), anatomy books or taxidermy. In fact, I initially wanted to be a pathologist. I didn’t quite make it to med-school, but at Create, my two passions – creative and biology – collide.

Matt Sugrim

Matt Sugrim

CGI artist & animator

Typically, I make things wibble, wobble, jiggle and jump. Now at Create Health, I’m doing it for a nobler purpose. I have a wonderful time concocting exciting and original visuals and animations for our array of ingenious clients and their life-enhancing technologies.

Nancy Line

Nancy Line

Project manager

Working at Create Health encapsulates three of my passions – being a bit of a control freak (in a nice way I promise), creativity and the hope to improve peoples lives. With my background in nursing and my future in budgets and briefs I can’t wait to utilise all three to make a change in healthcare.

Darren Clare

Darren Clare

Partner & chairman

When my daughter was diagnosed with Cystinosis, it opened my eyes to the sheer number of conditions that human beings can suffer from. However, it also made me more aware of the treatments, equipment, drugs and people available to help. I founded Create Health to raise awareness of those brands, services and people making a difference to families like mine.

Cupid

Cupid

Office dog

Every office needs a dog and ours is very special. Cupid, one of the nation’s favourite pooches from the Gromit Unleashed Trail 2 is not only beautiful and well-behaved, he’s helped to raise lots of money for The Grand Appeal – Bristol Children’s Hospital.
